Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai said that the Kuwaiti media prosecution kept the detention of Kuwaiti activist Reem Al-Shammari on charges of insulting an Arab country, after a series of tweets and videos that carried abuse to Egypt.
The Kuwaiti media prosecution had ordered the activist to be arrested and subjected to investigations, on the background of clips on social media that offended one of the sister Arab countries, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Anbaa..
According to a security source for the newspaper, the media prosecution received a report about the activist, as she summoned her yesterday and discussed it with what she mentioned in her videos, especially a clip published more than a month ago..
The source said: After investigations that extended for hours, a decision was issued to detain her until today.
The Kuwaiti blog, Reem Al-Shammari, caused a sensation on social media, after she criticized foreign workers in her country, and published Al-Shammari a video clip demanding the expulsion of the Egyptian community from Kuwait.
On the other hand, Egyptian and Kuwaiti social media pioneers posted tweets confirming Reem Al-Shammari’s detention for her abuse of Egypt and Egyptians in Kuwait, through videos she used to publish on her official accounts on the communication sites.
According to the singers, these videos contain phrases and expressions that offend the Egyptians, claiming that they love their country Kuwait, and these videos provoked angry reactions, amid calls for her arrest, and several reports were submitted against her requesting that she be legally held accountable for what she published.
Some of the sons of Kuwait came out in response to these videos, defending the Egyptian community in Kuwait, and asserting that Egypt and Kuwait are one people and the relations that unite them are historic and cannot be compromised..
