The statement issued by the ministry’s Public Ethics and Cybercrime Department follows the arrest of an Iranian fashionista for publishing indecent pictures on social media. The ministry will deport her in 72 hours.

Authorities also arrested a Kuwaiti Fashionista and her husband after she posted a clip on the social media, saying the clip contains unacceptable overtones, contrary to public decency and morals.
