MOI to form committee for 130,000 illegal expats in Kuwait.

The Ministry of Interior will soon form a committee that will deal with about 130,000 expatriates who violated the Residency Law, reports Al-Anba quoting a reliable source.

The source clarified that the committee’s tasks do not include setting the deadline for closing the file of  violators; as it will focus on finding an effective mechanism to at least reduce the number of expatriates committing violations.  

The source confirmed that the formation of the committee will not hinder the security campaigns carried out by the ministry to track down those who commit violations. The source also denied the alleged plan to set a deadline for the erring expatriates to rectify their status with the possibility of allowing them to return to the country.

The source added that majority of the violators are Asians and records show some of them have been violating the law for years, indicating more than 50 percent of them are under Article 20 visa (domestic workers).
