The Minister of Information on Monday warned that procedures, legal accountability, and financial penalties will be “activated” against any person who may intrude into fenced historic or archeological sites without permits from competent authorities.

Abdulrahman Al-Mutairi, also the Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Chairperson of the National Council of Culture, Arts and Letters, cited the relics’ law, namely its sixth chapter (titled penalties) where punishment reaches up to five years for such offenses.

The minister was speaking after a meeting of the committee tasked with renovating and overhauling historic buildings and sites, held at Kuwait National Library. Al-Mutairi, also chairman of the commission, said the panel would take legal action to prevent entry into any historic or archeological site without written approval from the council general secretariat. Officials partaking in the meeting, including the council Secretary-General Kamel Al-Abdul Jelil, examined schemes to overhaul a number of landmarks such as the palace of the late Abdullah Al-Mubarak and East Al-Ahmadi markets.
