KUNA’s twitter account hacking case referred to public prosecution

Kuwait, State-run Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) has referred the case of its Twitter account being hacked to the public prosecution, the agency’s Director General and Chairman Shaikh Mubarak Duaij Al Sabah has said.

Prosecutors will “thoroughly” investigate the act that aimed to tarnish KUNA’s image and undermine its credibility, Shaikh Mubarak said in a press release, emphasizing that the state-run news agency will continue to thrust Kuwait’s accomplishments into the limelight.

On a KUNA-issued roundup over the killing of an Iranian general, which caused an uproar, he said a high committee was set up to investigate the matter, the news agency reported.

The results of the probe were forwarded to Kuwait’s Information Minister Mohammad Al Jabri, who highlighted his unbridled support for KUNA, Shaikh Mubarak added.
