(MENAFN - Arab Times) Four Kuwaiti students of the University of Ajman and few others studying in Sharjah University have been driven out of the United Arab Emirates. The students are at risk of not completing their studies, reports Al-Rai daily quoting sources. Ajman University students, including Adel Hamad Al-Awadi, Ahmed Mubarak Al-Mutawa, and Abdullah Jassem Al-Ghais were surprised when suddenly the authorities announced that they were unwanted in the UAE.



They were ordered to leave the country, indicating none of them will be allowed to enter the country if the person is outside the UAE. Sources believe that the decision was based on the recommendation of the security apparatus of the UAE, under speculations that the four students belong to the Muslim Brotherhood or other related organizations. Informed sources close to the Ministry of Higher Education noted that Ajman University has officially addressed the Kuwaiti embassy through appropriate means on terminating the studies of the Kuwaiti students because they are 'unwelcome' in the United Arab Emirates. They said the letter from the university to the Kuwaiti embassy did not elaborate on the reasons for the action taken against the Kuwaiti students.



He pointed out that Kuwaiti embassy in UAE is trying to find out what had led to decision of ending the studies of these Kuwaiti students and why they are unwanted in the UAE, and then seek to address the problem. They reiterated that some of the students in Ajman and Sharjah universities have graduated while others have yet to earn their Masters degree. Like all other Kuwaiti students, the students in question adhere to the rules and regulations
