His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Alآ¬Ahmad Alآ¬Jaber Alآ¬Sabah, accompanied by His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Alآ¬Ahmad Alآ¬Jaber Alآ¬Sabah and His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, visited the Ministry of Interior's building Wednesday June 24, 2015.
His Highness was received by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Mohammad Al-Khaled Al-Sabah, Interior Ministry Undersecretary General Sulaiman Fahad Al-Fahad, and a number of assistant undersecretaries at the ministry.
Addressing the ministry's top officials, His Highness the Amir congratulated the ministry and its staff on the Holy Month of Ramadan, praying to Allah almighty to bring back the holy month with Kuwait and its people graced with goodness and blessings.
His Highness also expressed good wishes for Arab and Islamic nations on the blessed occasion.
His Highness the Amir said the security forces have a great role to play to preserve order of the country, calling on forces to stay alert at all times in order to prevent any possible danger and harm from happening, affirming that protecting Kuwait's security is a mutual responsibility that all citizens must take part in as "every citizen a sentinel." "In recent years, the increasing possession of unlicensed arms and ammunition in the country have posed a risk on citizens' lives and encouraged in the commission of crimes. Therefore, the arms collection bill was formed in order to protect citizens and residents of the country as citizens became very optimistic towards the new law," His Highness said.
His Highness also commended the ministry's campaign to collect unlicensed weapons and ammunitions in cooperation with state bodies, which attained a distinctive success that contributed in getting citizens acquainted with the bill and its sanctions, praising citizens' interaction with the new law by handling their weapons and ammunition to security bodies, embodying by that the high patriotic spirit.
His Highness also called on the security forces to implement the law strictly against looting, swindling, and violent acts, as well as other crimes such as cybercrimes, drug trafficking and violence among youths.
His Highness the Amir also called on the interior ministry to exert efforts to address traffic congestions, as well as violations of traffic laws that ultimately killed many people, particularly youth.
