    Kuwait is more corrupt than Saudi Arabia? this is bullshit. Saudi Arabia doesnt give human rights to females, they cant even drive, and they dont even have a cinema in their own country. Have you seen how they abuse the people? I have Evidence. They say Islamic country but its bullshit, I realized there is no such thing as Islam, but PAPER ISLAM. Mostly used for hypocrites

    Saudi Man Beats Servant

    Let me make a clear message, too all the corrupt and people who think that they are GOD and GODDESS, one day if you keep this shit act, the oil that you depend on so much, will be gone, and Allah will punish to the point you will regret it. What goes around comes back around.

    you see, in some Arab countries sadly who are hypocrites they abuse others, but one day God will punish them, if this ever happened to their brothers, Sisters, Fathers, Mothers and Wife, I would not be surprised.

    There was another Case that happened in Saudi Arabia, where a person did not Pay his maid for 2 months, and the maid was from Indonesia, and she wanted the money to help her family, but then she asked repeatedly again to her boss but the boss ignored her. so sadly she made the mistake and killed the mothers child, and in the end, she received the capital punishment.

    What we understood from the story was, the Indonesian saw the suffering of her own children in Indonesia, so she showed the suffering that those idiots, did not feel. So as I said, again, The middle east sadly, now have forgotten about mercy in some cases. Oil controlled them and I wish the Arabs can control oil, but they didnt.

    Before the oil came up, Kuwait was a hard working country, they made and built many things, sadly, oil came, and they did not control oil, but OIL controlled them.

    Sadly, what we see in tunis, Egypt, Libya, and Syria doesnt seem enough to be a warning or eye wakening, until the shit hits the fan in the Middle East.

      Ummm do you even know what corruption means? Domestic abuse is not corruption neither is human rights violations or women rights.

        well if you take into consideration the ‘agencies’ that are available to help these lower income expats, the corruption in the police that takes place with perpetrators not being arrested and runaways being arrested, the wastha that exists in these systems, then yes it is VERY much a matter of corruption.

        Knew firsthand of an employer right here who raped his maid and then served 3 days jail time only to get out cus he knew someone important. The maid? in the hospital, mentally distraught, broken spine and after she was discharged from the hospital, she was not at the police station where she was supposed to end up. she had disappeared.

        That, is corruption. it involved higher ups, police and the suppose ‘law’ of this country

    Whether you agree with this or not, I hope someone in a position that can actually do something about this takes notice.

    I work in construction in the oil and gas sector here; the level of blatant corruption from sides of client and contractor alike is ridiculous, more so than the several -stan countries and African countries I have worked in. Such a shame!

    No we’re more corrupt than that

    I love Kuwait, as a foreigner, I hope to see it improve because even though it is not my blood country, its the country I was born and raised in.
