Kuwait could ban nearly 100,000 of its residents from leaving the country for failing to pay dues owed to the state, local newspaper reported, quoting a senior Justice Ministry official.
The policy is part of a government plan to collect nearly 12 million Kuwaiti dinars ($42.
6 million) in fees for the use of state services, or as fines in felony and misdemeanour cases, Thursday's edition of the Kuwait Times quoted Mohammad al-Duaij as saying.
2, the state will automatically start blacklisting people who owe money, he said, adding that the ban would be imposed using a court order and come into effect 90 days later.
It could be lifted following payment of the dues or for humanitarian reasons, he said.
Daily al-Rai newspaper said the ban applied to Kuwaiti nationals and foreign residents.
