Kuwait should develop judicial system to fight money laundering

According to Kuwait’s economic expert Dr Jamal Abdulrahim. Kuwait has been suffering due to the prevalence of money laundering and human trafficking that are harmful to the nation.

In a seminar on the moral and financial crimes in Kuwait, Abdulrahim said that “the law is rarely enforced in the country” and added that people either disregard the law or just lack information on the existing legislation. He stressed the importance of developing the judicial system as this is crucial in following up money laundering cases, especially since the local courts lack the required skills regarding money laundering.

He recommended that harsher punishments should be applied to those involved in human trafficking and money laundering. Also, both crimes should be merged to impose a 7-year jail sentence.
