Kuwaiti MP calls for action against youths shaming the country while abroad

A Kuwaiti MP has demanded a review of “the growing irresponsible attitude of some Kuwaiti male and female youths who travel abroad”, Arabic daily Al Seyassah has reported.

Abudl Hamid Dashti said “disturbing” images of Kuwaiti youth misbehaving while overseas had emerged, creating a poor image of the country.

He called on parliament to set aside two hours at the beginning of the next session, due to start in October, to discuss the issue.

He would attempt to have the National Assembly make recommendations on how to deal with the youths, to be forwarded to the Executive Council, the report said.

He suggested revoking the passports of youths found to be acting unruly in a manner that smeared the country’s image in the international community.

The youths’ behaviour was “alien” to the rest of Kuwaiti society and would harm the entire nation if it was not addressed, he said.
