Juvenile crimes linked to broken homes

June 21, 2011

Nearly 75 percent of the crimes committed by juveniles in Kuwait are linked to divorce and other family problems, a Kuwaiti researcher has said.

According to Abbas Sabti, his findings were based on a study he recently conducted on crimes committed by youngsters in the country.

The researcher said that the crimes committed by juveniles usually increased in summer.

A senior official from the social affairs and labour ministry confirmed the finding, Kuwaiti daily Arab Times reported.
