Information Ministry: legal action against promoters of false information

KUWAIT, June 21 (KUNA) -- The Ministry of Information on Friday urged the media and the press to abstain from publishing rumors and false information.
The assistant undersecretary for the press, publishing and printing at the ministry, Lafi Al-Subaiee, called on all media outlets to adhere to professional norms and remain keen on credibility and national interests.
Some visual, readable and electronic outlets have recently broadcast false news about some measures taken by ministries and government departments, he said, indicating that legal action could be taken against such offenses.
The offenders will be submitted, without warning, to the information offenses committee to take legal action. (end) mmj.rk
