Advisory regarding narcotics/ drugs for Indian Community in Kuwait
The Embassy has noticed that there has been a spurt in the number of Indian nationals arrested in Kuwait allegedly for bringing drugs/ narcotics substances inside Kuwait. Also, there has been an increase in the number of Indian nationals arrested in Kuwait in drug related cases. About 65% of total Indian inmates in Central Jail are due to drug related offences. Furthermore, about 40% Indians under arrest in Public jail are due to drug-related charges.
2. It is reiterated that penalties for possession, use and trafficking of drugs, even a small amount in Kuwait, could result in arrest and imprisonment. The convicted offenders could even be given capital punishment or life imprisonment by the local Courts. Moreover, in drug-related cases, Indian Embassy cannot extend any legal/ financial assistance to those arrested. All concerned have to defend themselves in local courts by hiring lawyers at their cost. The release of accused or convicted person depends upon the verdict of the Court.
3. The Embassy advises once again to all Indian community members in Kuwait to abide by the laws of the land and not to involve themselves in any drug-related activities.
