Kuwait has stripped five well-known opposition figures of their citizenship, including the owner of a newspaper and television station.
The official Kuwait News Agency announced the decision by Kuwait’s cabinet on Monday, which approved a draft decree to revoke the citizenship of the five.
Among those named in the decision is Abdullah al-Barghash, a former Islamist opposition legislator, and three other members of his family.
The government also revoked the nationality of Ahmad al-Shemmeri, owner of the independent Al-Youm television station and Alam Al-Yawm newspaper.
His newspaper was ordered temporarily shut down twice this year by a court for defying a prosecutor-ordered media blackout about an investigation into a coup plot to overthrow the Gulf monarchy’s government.
The state news agency account did not give a reason for the cabinet’s decision.
