CAIRO, Dec 5 (KUNA) -- A top Kuwaiti justice official highlighted on Sunday efforts to strengthen hate speech laws aiming to establish more religious tolerance during talks involving justice ministers from across the Arab region, saying he had pitched suggestions over the matter.
Kuwait has made "palpable" progress in measures the country has taken to clamp down on hate speech and encourage religious harmony, Justice Ministry Undersecretary for Legal Affairs and International Relations Zakaria Al-Ansari told KUNA after the talks.
Some of the legal and judicial measures Arab countries had taken during the COVID pandemic were also discussed, added the official, saying the suggestions he had made included anti-terrorism efforts and measures to eradicate corruption.
He hailed the talks, held in person in the Egyptian capital Cairo, as a "new beginning" towards greater pan-Arab judicial cooperation, saying it was needed to bring some vital legislations to fruition. (end)
