Kuwait revokes more citizenships citing state security

Clouds cover buildings in Kuwait City during a heavy rainfall on November 18, 2013Kuwait has revoked the citizenship of 10 people, including activists, the government said Monday in the second such move in less than a month as part of a crackdown on dissent. The cabinet said the decision was based on a provision in the nationality law that allows citizenship to be revoked of those who threaten Kuwait’s security, social order or economy. On July 21, Kuwait revoked the citizenship of several people, including the owner of a pro-opposition television station and newspaper, Ahmad Jabr al-Shammari, and former Islamist opposition MP Abdullah al-Barghash along with his family members. “No government has the right to strip away its people’s citizenship simply because it disapproves of them, their opinions, or their actions,” said HRW’s Joe Stork.
