Govt to fight menace of fake social media accounts

 

 

The government is preparing a list of bogus social media account owners who instigate strife, which will be submitted to concerned authorities to deal with them. Informed sources said the Cabinet will not be satisfied with closing the accounts – rather it will take those behind them to court in Kuwait or abroad in coordination with embassies. The government’s communications center met representatives of all government departments to discuss the development of the media mission. Sources said the center stressed that it is necessary to use all technological means to fight rumors, while forming teams in ministries to combat them. Sources called upon government departments to use the opportunity presented by people’s communications with ministries through WhatsApp and develop ministries’ accounts that are lagging behind their counterparts. –K.T.
