Kuwait GCC countries to check on airport deport ban gays from entering countries

A medical test being developed by Kuwait will be used to 'detect' homosexuals and prevent them from entering the country – or any of the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC), according to a Kuwaiti government official.

Kuwait and other states will conduct medical tests in an attempt to “detect” homosexuals trying to enter Gulf states and once detected they will be thrown out of the country from Air Port only.

GCC member countries –
5)Saudi Arabia
6)United Arab Emirates

Already deem homosexual acts unlawful

Daily mail reported that Health centers conduct the routine medical check to assess the health of the expatriates when they come into the GCC countries. However, we will take stricter measures that will help us detect gays who will be then barred from entering Kuwait or any of the GCC member states.’

Those taking part in homosexual acts in Kuwait, if they’re under 21, can receive a jail sentence of up to 10 years.

It’s illegal to be gay in 78 countries, with lesbianism banned in 49.

Five countries mete out the death penalty to gay people –

1)Iran - Iran has executed more than 4,000 people charged with homosexual acts.

2)Saudi Arabia - fines, prison sentences, and whipping

3)Sudan - For homosexual men, lashes are given for the first offence, with the death penalty following the third offence.  100 lashes are given to unmarried women who engage in homosexual acts. For lesbian women, stoning and thousands of lashes are the penalty for the first offence.

4)Yemen - punishment from flogging to death.

5)Mauritania – Punishment death sentence by public stoning
