KUWAIT: Act­ing di­rec­tor of the Man­power Pub­lic Author­ity Ahmed Al-Mousa said that he had re­cently met In­te­rior Min­istry’s As­sis­tant Un­der­sec­re­tary for Pass­ports and Res­i­dency Af­fairs Ma­jor Gen­eral Sheikh Mazen Al-Jar­rah AlSabah, adding that they both agreed on a num­ber of sug­ges­tions to or­ga­nize the la­bor mar­ket. Moussa ex­plained that the sug­ges­tions in­cluded al­lo­cat­ing po­lice de­tec­tive of­fices at some la­bor de­part­ments with the aim of hav­ing more con­trol over visa is­suance and de­tect­ing any vi­o­la­tions. He added that the sug­ges­tions also in­cluded fol­low­ing up on sus­pended com­pa­nies to set spe­cial mech­a­nisms to deal with the work­ers reg­is­tered with them, in ad­di­tion to ab­scon­ders.

In an­other de­vel­op­ment, in­formed sources said that on in­struc­tions from Min­is­ter of So­cial Af­fairs and La­bor, Min­is­ter Hind Al-Subaih, Kuwait Mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s Act­ing Di­rec­tor Ah­mad AlMan­fouhi vis­ited the Hawally la­bor depart­ment to han­dle the prob­lem of lack of staff, by trans­fer­ring some employees from other over-staffed de­part­ments.

The crim­i­nal court yes­ter­day ac­quit­ted for­mer MP Mubarak Al-Duwailah in a state se­cu­rity case and charges of slan­der­ing Egypt. The court also de­cided ab­stain­ing from pun­ish­ing Nasser Al-Duwailah and Dr Tareq Suwaidan over the same charges.
