Rules at Messilah Beach , Kuwait
Thanks Mehroz Kazmi for info

Importing or storing nuclear substances could lead to the death penalty

under a new environmental law that came into effect in Kuwait on Sunday. The controversial legislation also includes a KD 250 ($860) fine for picking flowers, while littering or causing the death of marine and land fauna will incur a KD 500 fine for each penalty, and smoking in closed and semi-closed public areas a KD 100 fine. Other violations include noise and sea pollution.

A new police force division also has been established to monitor the new rules. The legislation was approved by the previous parliament and came into effect on Sunday. The Environmental Protection Authority’s deputy director for technical affairs, Mohammed Al Enezi, said the body also had new powers to refer government organisations for investigation if they were believed to be negligent or lenient in enforcing the new rules.

“Violators will be severely punished as well,” he said, according to Kuwait Times.

  1. Follow first before u complain,,

  2. Theses rules are for nobody I have nit seen any body has stop smoking publically

  3. Are the Kuwaitis will have to follow these rules too??? Are they gonna be fined for real??? Cause most of what is described here is mostly what they do all the times. I have seen one yesterday at Avenues smoking and he didn't look like he was sacred of any fine… And all the kids that finish they soda's can and through it in the street even though there is a trash can 15 meters away… Will they be fined??? Let me be sceptical…

  23. For other nationality like me let us follow what the rules implemented by the government of kuwait we dont have the right to question or make some arguments ….this is not our country so we must obliged to respect this implementation for the sake of our own benefit to avoid the fined imposed..

  37. I respect the law but how about Kuwaity pepole who don't care about this , even in hospital reception I saw receptionist smoke front of the sick people

  38. observe first your own nationality before the expats! they are the 1 who violating all of your law which you cannot control! all kuwaiti shabab are very rude in the road! all of them are stupid by driving! littering and smoking too!even your young ages! give lesson to your young shabab and badoons! not always expats your rulling!
