Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Me­shaal Al-Enezi

KUWAIT: Sev­eral fish com­pa­nies have com­plained against of­fi­cials at the Pub­lic Author­ity for Agri­cul­tural Af­fairs and Fish Re­sources for not im­ple­ment­ing the law on vi­o­lat­ing fish farming com­pa­nies in Su­laibiya agri­cul­tural area, at­tempt­ing to find a loop­hole for them and de­lay­ing the recla­ma­tion of fish­ing ar­eas. The com­plaint was filed at the Pub­lic An­ti­cor­rup­tion Author­ity. The depart­ment con­cerned with the al­lo­cated ar­eas has sent more than 10 let­ters and re­ports de­mand­ing to take the nec­es­sary ac­tion and take back five ar­eas from five com­pa­nies for lack of se­ri­ous­ness in es­tab­lish­ing fish projects to have food se­cu­rity in the coun­try. The state­ment sent to the Pub­lic An­ti­cor­rup­tion Author­ity in­cludes all cor­re­spon­dence be­tween con­cerned de­part­ments, vi­o­la­tions and lack of im­ple­ment­ing the law for more than three years. They said th­ese were pa­per com­pa­nies and did not do any­thing since they were es­tab­lished.

Terror fund­ing

The crim­i­nal court will give its ver­dict against peo­ple ac­cused of fi­nanc­ing and fight­ing with the Is­lamic State (IS) group and Nusra Front on De­cem­ber 16. Mean­while, the court de­ferred a state se­cu­rity case against Shi­ite cleric Hus­sein Al-Maa­touq un­til Jan­uary 27. Maa­touq de­nied all charges of in­sti­gat­ing strife, false news and con­tempt of court.

Ab­scond­ing com­plaints

As part of the co­or­di­na­tion be­tween the Man­power Pub­lic Author­ity and In­te­rior Min­istry, the com­mit­tee that de­cides on ab­scond­ing com­plaints held its first meet­ing to dis­cuss and study the mech­a­nisms of ab­scond­ing com­plaints be­tween the author­ity and the in­te­rior min­istry by study­ing sta­tis­tics, de­cid­ing on reg­is­tered cases and search­ing for the pos­si­bil­ity of find­ing friendly so­lu­tions in some cases. Deputy Gen­eral Man­ager of the Man­power Pub­lic Author­ity Ab­dul­lah Al-Moutah said weekly meet­ings will be held by the com­mit­tee to study cases and de­cide on them, adding that the release of op­pressed work­ers is near.
