Kuwait’s Nationwide Meeting on Thursday licensed in the second one deliberation a draft legislation to amend some provisions of the print and publishing legislation. Out of fifty attendees, just one voted in opposition to the Legislation, forty-seven voted for the modification, whilst two others declined. The amendments decreased the prohibitions from 11 to 5, so the legislation prevents outraging public morals, in addition to the disclosure of confidentiality and prejudice to the honour of other people and their non secular ideals, advocating or inciting contempt for any workforce of society and harming Kuwaiti family members with different Arab or pleasant international locations. The amendments decreased the price of infringing the Amir authority’s high-quality for not more than KD 10,000 ($ 33,000).
