Kuwait Amir pardons all convicts accused of offending Amir

KUWAIT, July 30 (KUNA) -- His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah pardoned all people who were accused of offending the Amir, as he expressed optimism that the next parliament would witness development and work on diversification of income.
"I am pleased on the occasion of the last 10 days of Ramadhan to grant an Amiri amnesty on all those convicted of offending the Amir to be effective immediately," said Sheikh Sabah in his speech to the nation.
His Highness the Amir also said that Kuwait in the 14th legislative term of the National Assembly would witness promising approach toward "horizons of progress of development and serious action for income diversification." HH Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad stated "By Allah's will, we are heading toward a new phase of this new legislative term, where the country will witness a promising launch toward horizons of progress and development and serious work for diversification of income, follow-up on execution of development schemes, execution of vital megal ventures, through the aspired fruitful and constructive cooperation between the executive and legislative authorities." His Highness the Amir, who started the speech with a Koranic verse alluding to the faithful who "abide by the best of guidance," invoking Allah the Almight to accept "our fasting, (night) prayers and good deeds," congratulated the people on return of the holy month, praying to Allah "to protect our country against illicit and explicit seditions, with consideration to the events taking place in surrounding states and taking lessons to be more prudent to spare ourselves of their ramifications." While affirming that Allah grants greater rewards for the faithful during the sacred month, His Highness urged the citizens to seek more of the good deeds and spiritual activities and prayers during the month such as Koranic reading, alluded to the Saturday parliamentary elections, when "Kuwait experienced a democratic ceremony where the citizens practiced their suffrage of choosing their representatives in the National Assembly." HH Sheikh Sabah praised the nationals who practiced their franchise "affirming authenticity of our democratic march, deep adherence to it, robust loyalty to the homeland and its democratic system." "I am please on this occasion to express deep congratulations to those who have attained the honor of representing the citizens, hoping that they prove to be up to the aspirations pinned upon them with respect of shouldering the responsibility laid on their shoulders for realizing aspirations of the citizens," HH the Amir stated, in reference to the 50 figures who were elected as the new members of the Parliament.
Elaborating on the people's aspirations, HH Sheikh Sabah noted that the people of Kuwait await to see speedy action for securing better public services, activating development process "free from conflicts and disputes that dampen the energies and slow down pace of achievements." HH Sheikh Sabah noted that last March, the first national youth conference was held, under the theme, "Kuwait listens," after which the conferees submitted to him "a significant national document" including a great number of recommendations that concern the young of this homeland, contribute to realizing their aspirations and their future outlooks for the service of the country Kuwait.
"The government has been guided to study these important recommendations and speedily implement them, and now we are witnessing that a number of these advises have turned into a reality." He added that the goal of this "national project for the youth" was to devote attention to "this promising generation, allowing them to take part in the decision making, enabling them to contribute to shouldering the national responsibility of taking part in the process of sustainable development for construction of the present and future Kuwait." HH the Amir, whose address was peppered with several Koranic verses, called for adherence to principles of Islam, namely with regard of promoting cordial ties among the natives, "deepening our national unity which has always been the solid fence, preserving our national principles." Moreover, he called for discussing internal issues without making charges or addressing insults, stressing that dialogue can be held in calm atmosphere for "sake of reaching the best solutions, instead of staying at odds all the time without any result but spreading the spirit of dissension, strife and fanaticism." HH the Amir urged the citizens to maintain the bonds of brotherhood and be prepared to "build our country Kuwait and safeguard it as the ancestors did, so our dear homeland may remain an oasis of security, peace and prosperity, by Allah's will." In conclusion, HH the Amir recalled on the blessed occasion the late Amir Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and HH the Father Amir Sheikh Saad Al-Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah, invoking His Almighty to bestow his mercy upon their souls.
He also recalled the martyrs who sacrificed their blood in defense of the homeland, and for souls of all demised citizens. (end) rk.bs KUNA 302128 Jul 13NNNN
