Ministry of Interior spokesperson Brigadier Tariq Hassan Al Hassan has announced that security forces have evacuated protesters from the area of Pearl Roundabout after trying all opportunities for a dialogue with them, to which some responded positively and left quietly. Others refused to obey the law which led to interference to make them leave, he said.

He said that security forces had been keen on exercising self-control and on communicating with the protesters through public figures to end the sit-in peacefully, in order to ensure that law was followed within the institutions of state. But some protesters exploited the situation by introducing illegal practices and disturbing citizens and residents by erecting checkpoints in the area surrounding the roundabout and stopping vehicles and passersby. This was considered a major illegal practice which spread fear among the public and adversely affected commercial and economic activity.  

The spokesperson said the Ministry of Interior had received numerous complaints from the public regarding the massive personal inconvenience and economic losses they had been suffering. He said the protest in such an important area greatly affected national economy, trade, tourism and public interests and also caused traffic jams.  

Brigadier Al Hassan called upon the people to follow the Constitution and the law while exercising their freedom of expression, and to show patriotism and concern for the nation’s welfare.
