Kuwait to deport nine Egyptians for protesting crackdown

20th Aug 2013

Kuwait is to deport nine Egyptian Islamists for participating in protests outside their embassy in the Gulf emirate which bans foreigners from demonstrating, a newspaper said on Monday.

The men were among a group of some 70 protesters who staged two demonstrations outside the Egyptian embassy and consulate last week to protest a deadly crackdown in Cairo of supporters of Egypt’s deposed Islamist president Mohammed Mursi, Al-Rai newspaper reported.

The deportation orders were issued by Sheikh Mohammed al-Khaled, Kuwait’s deputy prime minister and interior minister.

The daily said that police were still working on identifying other protesters, who could also face deportation, pointing out that the law in Kuwait bans foreigners from staging protests.

MP Hamad al-Harshani said that “the Egyptians who participated in the demonstrations happening in Kuwait are to be deported, because of the damages that these demonstrations have caused for national security.”

The paper also quoted MP Abdullah al-Tariji as saying that “residents must respect the laws of this country and the instructions of the Ministry of Interior.”

“They are not to take part in any activity or gathering that has been prohibited by the Ministry of Interior,” he added.

Not all the officials agreed with the order. MP Hussein Kuwai’an told Al-Rai said the deporting the Egyptians constitutes a violation to their rights to free speech.

“The Egyptian community in Kuwait is guaranteed freedom of speech,” he said. “I am against deporting any of them from Kuwait because if we did that, we would be supporting one party against the other.”
