(MENAFN - Arab Times) The security agencies in the country have compiled a comprehensive report on the potential risks against Kuwait and its stability, and clarified that there are 'sleeping cells' and extremist groups in the country, citing DA'ESH, Jabhat Al-Nosrah, Hezbollah and the mother organization of all extremiststhe Muslim Brotherhood, reports Al- Seyassah daily.



Report indicated the atmosphere of freedom and cordial relationships with beneficiaries coupled with financial wealth has made Kuwait a fertile environment and safe shelter for members of extremist groups. It confirmed the operations of money laundering have increased extensively "and these operations are the direct causes of hikes in the prices of real estate, plots of land and other commodities", and it's out of control of the executive authority



Suspicion

With the files of citizenship and residency, the report uncovered forgery and manipulations that are ruining the structure of Kuwait's population. Accordingly, the security agencies have begun summoning the people against whom they hold suspicions to put them through DNA testing to discover facts. With reference to the GCC Security Pact, the Parliament Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim called for the MPs to wait until Sunday's session, although many of them are preparing to travel outside the country. Meanwhile, MP Yaqoub Al- Sane' has said political convenience compels one to admit that the GCC security pact is a popular demand. He indicated "we have been looking forward to such opportunities since childhood and we hope the GCC will be transformed into a genuine economic, security, and social organization".



At a seminar the Constitutional Unity Bloc organized on Wednesday, Al- Sane' said many of those who oppose the security pact have not read its items, and those criticizing the pact blame Kuwait for not sending forces to Bahrain during the incidents of March 2011. He blamed them for proposing a confederacy and then turning around to refuse the security pact at present, indicating "I do not succumb to those who hold private agendas". In the same context, Dr Fahd Al- Shlaimi, Head of Strategic Studies Center, and Dr Sami Al-Faraj have affirmed that the security pact does not touch the sovereignty of Kuwait, adding some individuals who have no understanding such issues are behind the criticisms.



He explained that the pact aims to achieve integration, collaboration and coordination among the GCC countries in times of crises and disasters, and security disorder, adding the pact is similar to the other GCC economic, judicial and political pacts. He also said Kuwait refrained from signing the document in 1994 before it was modified, because the pact contradicted with the constitution and the welfare of Kuwait. They added the items in the pact say 'to cooperate and share' without mentioning any kind of coercion or obligation. He stressed that the region is confronting crucial situations wherein international organized gangs and groups have become a threat. He noted the situation requires dealing with the threat and that the major issue is related to terrorism, crime, money laundering and electronic based crime
