Increase in number of E-crimes in Kuwait

Justice ministry statistics showed the number of electronic crime cases at the courts reached 1,057 during the first half of the year, which is an increase of more than 3,300 percent compared to the first six months of 2018, with 18 cases only.

These cases were filed by individuals or governmental bodies against individuals. Most of them are related to blackmail, threat, insults and defamation as well as invasion of privacy, misuse of mobile phones, immorality, and offending the leaders and icons of the country.

The sources blamed the increase on social media and the wrongful use of technology, which led victims to go to courts at a rate of six cases daily. Judiciary will deal strictly with such cases, and show no tolerance in punishing the convicts.
