Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By A Saleh

KUWAIT:

The Pub­lic Anti-Cor­rup­tion Author­ity re­ceived fi­nan­cial dis­clo­sure state­ments from var­i­ous state of­fi­cials on Nov 21 and re­marked that the state­ments so far sub­mit­ted are still less than 10, said in­formed sources. The sources added that af­ter the par­lia­men­tary elec­tions, 50 new law­mak­ers as­sumed of­fice, but only one state­ment was sub­mit­ted by MP Ab­dul Ka­reem Al-Kan­dari. The sources high­lighted that the dead­line for all of­fi­cials to sub­mit their state­ments is May 14, 2017, but newly-elected MPs and pub­lic ser­vants have to file their state­ments within a max­i­mum of 60 days af­ter as­sum­ing new po­si­tions and within six months for those al­ready in ser­vice when the author­ity’s char­ter was passed.

The state­ment should be up­dated within 60 days at the end of three years in the same position and within 90 days af­ter leav­ing any position. Of­fi­cials who de­lay fil­ing their state­ments will be sub­jected to pe­nal mea­sures in­clud­ing a KD 500-3,000 fine for de­lay­ing the first state­ment. In case the de­lay ex­ceeds 90 days fol­low­ing a warn­ing, the of­fi­cial will be dis­missed from of­fice. On the other hand, de­lay in fil­ing a state­ment up­date will sub­ject the con­cerned of­fi­cial to a max­i­mum KD 3,000 fine and up to one year in prison, while a de­lay be­yond 90 days will sub­ject an of­fi­cial to a KD 3,000-10,000 fine and a pos­si­bil­ity of dis­missal.

New students

Kuwait Univer­sity Rec­tor Dr Hus­sein AlAn­sary an­nounced that the univer­sity will ac­cept 756 new students for the sec­ond se­mes­ter af­ter it al­ready ac­cepted 5,913 students in the first se­mes­ter for the aca­demic year 2016-2017. An­sary jus­ti­fied the lower num­ber ac­cepted for the sec­ond se­mes­ter to the univer­sity’s limited ca­pac­ity due to limited space and be­ing un­der­staffed.
