The Ministry of Interior has announced that it is in the process of completing a project, a first of its kind in Kuwait, which aims to collect fines from expatriates and citizens at 70 police stations through K-Net kiosks.
The step comes within the e-government project that makes the collection of fines easy, which will enable residents to settle their fees in various police stations using online facilities known as K-Net kiosks.
