KUWAIT, April 15 (KUNA) -- Kuwait's Minister of Information Sheikh Salman Sabah Al-Salem Al-Humoud Al-Sabah stated Monday that the proposed unified media law does not allow prior censorship on media content.
"The bill does not permit prior censorship on media content," Sheikh Salman, also Minister of State for Youth Affairs, told reporters after attending a special session on the issue at the National Assembly's Education, Culture and Guidance Affairs Committee.
The Minister unveiled that he has clarified the main features of the bill and briefed the MPs about entailed advantages.
"Neither prior permission is required nor censorship is allowed on social media, such as WhatsApp," he said.
Sheikh Salman noted that the bill would replace imprisonment with fines in media-related offenses.
"We seek, through this bill, to help found effective and influential media and to allow more freedoms," Sheikh Salman said.
The Minister added that he has listened and recorded the MPs comments on the bill.
"The Ministry welcomes the comments and suggestions that help strengthen national unity, stability; increase media freedom and achieve the higher interests of the State of Kuwait," he concluded. (end) sss.tb.ibi KUNA 151721 Apr 13NNNN
