Security holds have been a tool used by the interior ministry since the 90’s to fabricate reasons against many Bedoon and thus block their citizenship process. Today, Al-Kuwaitiah newspaper quoted an official of the Central Agency saying that 60% of the security holds were taken off because they are not real ones. This comes only to confirm that authorities have been stating lies to the international community and the Kuwaiti society with “security holds” that are not true by any means. The newspaper said that Saleh Al-Fidhala himself made this decision! To further explain, those holds are purely racist as they profile Bedoon as “Syrian rooted, Iraqi rooted, Jordanian rooted” etc.. and thus making one’s roots the reason behind his/her illegibility to citizenship.
