Kuwait’s Ministry of Information has notably relaxed censorship of television programs believing that it will promote more creative content. Earlier, Kuwait has had strict censorship laws surrounding the publication and broadcast of information and creative arts and last year suspended the operations of two newspapers.
Ministry of Information’s assistant undersecretary Loulwa Al Salem announced that authorities would now assess various drama shows after broadcasting rather than before. He continued that the relaxed regulations would be reviewed in a year. For the new law, Production firms would no longer need to obtain a permit for each stage of production.As a result, it makes the process more efficient and less costly:
It will simplify the work of media production companies, as this decree only demands previous approval for the production of TV dramas. . . As a result of this new decree, the censorship by the ministry will be after the broadcast of a TV serial.
