Dubai: Kuwaiti Minister of Social Affairs Mariam Al Aqeel has decried social media reports on an alleged plan to deport expatriates as “totally untrue”, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).
Al Aqeel, who doubles as Minister of State for Economic Affairs and Acting Minister of State for Service Affairs, said in a press statement that no decision whatsoever had been made in this regard.
The minister even underlined that she was not in a position to take such a decision, urging social media to ensure credibility.
“To avoid confusion and chaos in the society, everyone should seek the correct information and news from official sources,” Al Aqeel requested.
The Public Authority of Manpower also dismissed such reports as being “divorced from reality”, urging people to steer clear of rumours and fake news to protect public security and safety.
