  • The Kuwaiti legislature had had enough of the bloodshed of innocent victims as the Islamic state (IS) terrorist group claimed the responsibility for the gruesome June 26 mosque bombing.
  • The law states that security agencies must help the government to create a database on all 1.3 million Kuwaiti citizens and 2.9 million foreign residents in order to make faster arrests when it comes to criminal cases.
  • It is also stated that for those who refuse to give out their sample will be sent to jail for a year. It will also come with a fine of $33,000 or 29, 700 euros. If a citizen is proven guilty of faking their sample, they are entitled to be imprisoned for seven years.
