Kuwait printing, publishing law changes ratified by National Assembly




Kuwait printing, publishing law changes ratified by National Assembly

(See Translation in Arabic Section)

Sydney - M E Times Int'l: THE Kuwaiti National Assembly has approved changes to the Printing and Publishing Law.

Out of 50 attendees, only one voted against the draft law, 47 voted for and two declined.

The amendments reduced the prohibitions from 11 to five; the law relate to public morals, disclosure of confidentiality, prejudicing the dignity of people and their religious beliefs, inciting contempt and harming Kuwaiti relations with other Arab or friendly countries.

The explanatory memorandum referred to the abolition of infringements of the law for some of the prohibitions contained in one of the articles related to the publication’s inclusion in what is inconsistent with the national interest or if it serves a foreign country or affects the social or political system in the country due to a lack of clarity of the phrases and the difficulty of applying them realistically.

The amendments reduced the value of infringing the Amir authority's fine for no more than KD10,000 (USD 33,000).

The Information and Culture Minister Dr. Hamad Rohaldeen thanked the MPs for their approval of the draft law.

The National Assembly had also moved in its session to discuss the report of the Parliamentary Education, Culture and Guidance Affairs Committee on the second deliberation of a draft law amending Law No. (3) of 2006 regarding publications and publishing, as previously approved by parliament on March 30.
