MP Nabil Al-Fadel has presented a draft bill on classifying the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, DAESH, Boko Haram, al-Qaeda, Abu Sayyaf and al-Nusra Front as terrorist organizations. In the explanatory note of the bill, the lawmaker said that in order to protect the interests of Kuwait in accordance with the Constitution, the legislature passed law number 31/1970 amending some provisions of the Penal Code number 16/1960 regarding crimes related to external and internal security. He pointed out the existing law does not classify groups or parties which commit State security crimes as terrorist organizations.

Article One classifies the following groups or parties and their branches as terrorist organizations: Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, DAESH, Boko Haram, al- Qaeda, Abu Sayyaf and al- Nusra Front or any group included on the international, regional or local lists of terrorists.

This stipulation applies to all those involved, including the founders and supporters of the aforementioned groups. Article Two stipulates that besides those mentioned in the preceding article, the government has the right to declare any other organization or party as a terrorist group working against the interest of the State and its vision.

Article Three states that anybody proven to have established or organized a terrorist group, funded its operations, become members of the group or call on anyone to join the group will be imprisoned for not less than 10 years and not more than 20 years.
