Kuwait removes Syrian condolences tents

March 28, 2011

Kuwait has vowed a zero-tolerance policy towards Syrian nationals who do not comply with the laws, saying they could be deported.

The warning was issued after relatives of some of the people who were killed during protests in Daraa set up tents to receive condolences in the Hawalli area.

According to Kuwaiti daily An Nahar, Kuwaiti police told the relatives that they could not set up the tents and that they could be deported for their action.

Several Kuwaiti lawmakers visited the tents and offered their condolences.

A security source told the daily that 17 Syrians were arrested on Saturday on their way to their country’s embassy in Al Jabriya despite a Kuwaiti ban on all forms of demonstrations against the Syrian regime.

An Nahar said that 40 Syrians were arrested on Friday following the prayers.

“All those who were arrested could face deportation under Kuwaiti laws,” the source said.
