The administration of King Abdulaziz Camel Festival has stressed that strict penalties, including the ban from participation, are awaiting those instigating tribal slurs and gatherings that harass visitors and participants of the Festival.
The administration said such practices are totally rejected and unacceptable.
Head of Organization and Field Committees Fawzan Al-Madi said the administration of King Abdulaziz Camel Festival does not prevent gatherings but it makes them legalized and organized adding that there are gatherings which reflect pride while raising Saudi flags, chanting national songs and expressing national unity.
The undesired and negative joy is that which comes through harmful gathering which carries slogans and instigates slurs as it raises flags not the national flag, he said. he said the harmful gathering is that one which hampers work of the security men adding that such excesses will expose their instigators to penalties including their ban from participation. He called on the participants to control their supporters and alert them not to exceed the instructions.
It is to be recalled that excesses in gatherings with camels joining the Festival as they display their skills in front of the jury committee are considered a negative phenomenon which is deplorable by all, whether are participants or visitors, notably if it instigates tribal slurs or carries un-known flags.
The owner of the camel might be banned from the Festival for irregularities, which have already been warned of while the crowded might harm himself or others. To this end, the administration of the Festival and its staff are working to ensure the safety of participants and visitors, he said.
