Kuwaiti authorities have warned of a crackdown on wild New Year’s celebrations.
Tents used to host mixed-gender parties or to engage in illegal activities would be taken down, Arab Times reported. It is illegal to consume alcohol in Kuwait.
Security also would be deployed to hotels and restaurants, the report added, although it was not clear whether private residences would be targeted.
A security source told the daily the crackdown would take place after midnight on January 1 and anyone found in “an abnormal condition” would be referred to authorities.
“People caught in suspicious places or in abnormal condition [sic] will be prone to deportation,” the source reportedly said.For all the latest business news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
