The Kuwaiti satellite channel Mubasher and newspaper Al-Mustaqbal, both owned by Shaikh Fahd Salem Al Ali have been banned by the country’s ministry of commerce on a request by the ministry of information.
The ministry of commerce cited “irregularities” as reason for the closures, however the Arabic Network for Human Rights alleges that the real reason is the broadcast of anti-government seminars and demonstrations by the channel.Tags: Kuwait | press freedom
