Kuwait’s public prosecution is set to investigate a number of people for allegedly undermining the status of the country’s emir.

The 68 men and women have been referred to the prosecution by the state security agency amid suspicions that they helped disseminate a controversial speech given by opposition leader Musallam Al Barrak for which he was sentenced to five years in prison, local Arabic daily Al Jareeda reported on Thursday.

“The suspects are to be summoned for publicly repeating or reproducing the speech by Al Barrak on Twitter accounts or through video clips,” security sources told the newspaper.

According to news site Al Aan, the list of suspects includes former lawmakers, media representatives and political activists.
