KUWAIT CITY, June 12: In this week’s online poll, the Arab Times asked voters what they felt were the psychological effects of deportations on them. The mood is generally dim and gloomy.
A majority of the voters said they feel victimized by the wrong application of law. Speaking to respondents the Arab Times found out expatriates are living under fear despite being legal in all respects, “because we don’t know what we are going to be caught for.”
There have been many reports of people being arrested for dropping off friends at the airport. This was an example that most respondents quoted for wrong application of law. “Yes, we know that illegal taxiing is a crime. But to assume that any unrelated person riding your car is a customer is ridiculous.”
