GEA to initiate action against ‘Project X’ event organizers


JEDDAH — The General Entertainment Authority (GEA) has opened an immediate investigation into video clips that went viral on social media on Wednesday on an event in Jeddah.

The event held by Project X was in contravention of the legal and regulatory procedures in force and it was not licensed by GEA.

Originally, the license was for holding another event, but its organizer took advantage of the Authority’s license and extended the holding of the event until Shawwal 11, 1440H, hence, committing a grave and unacceptable violation.

GEA said organizers of the event will be referred to the pertinent authorities.
