KUWAIT, July 15 (KUNA) -- The Ministry of Interior will apply the full extent of the law against those, among them users of the smart phone app Pokemon Go, who willfully or not take photos of sensitive landmarks and locations all across the country, a statement by the Ministry warned on Friday.
Ministry Undersecretary Lt. Gen. Sulaiman Al-Fahad noted in a press statement that all vital government, military, and security locations are off limits to users of the Pokemon Go game, warning that those who violate this order from the Ministry will have the law to answer for and will be promptly prosecuted.
Among other vital locations are mosques, shopping centers and malls and oil installations, he said, adding that users of the game who ostensibly take photos of these locations claiming unawareness of the law prohibiting that will be prosecuted and turned over to a court of law. No excuses will be accepted by anyone claiming ignorance of the law, he stressed.
He further said that security personnel are under strict instructions to haul in anyone breaking the law through the use of Pokemon Go. (end) amn.ajs
