No raids without warrants





Kuwati: Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sheikh Mohammad Al-Khaled Al-Sabah gave orders to Undersecretary Lieutenant General Suleiman Al-Fahad to make sure that officers obtain warrants from the public prosecution before raiding apartments in crackdowns against violators.

The new instructions, which came after the Interior Ministry received complains that police raid apartments without a warrant, further indicate that the raids must be carried out based on specific information obtained via investigations carried out by criminal detectives. Furthermore, the minister ordered police not to carry out raids at any café in Kuwait, as the municipality is the only state body with the authority to carry out such activity.- Al-Anbaa
