Interior Minister abandons responsibility over sending staff for treatment abroad
KUWAIT: Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Lt Gen Sheikh Khaled AlJarrah Al-Sabah issued a ministerial decision to transfer the approval of sending interior ministry employees for treatment abroad or to private hospitals in Kuwait to the Ministry of Health’s treatment abroad department. The interior minister previously had the authority for making such approvals, but after yesterday’s decision, the treatment abroad department becomes the sole authority responsible for making such decisions.
No injuries in fire
Firemen put out fire in a mosque under construction in Jaber Al-Ali yesterday. Firefighters arrived to the scene minutes after the fire was reported, and managed to put out the flames before the blaze could spread. No injuries were reported in the incident. A case was filed to determine the cause of the fire.
The Interior Ministry’s traffic department said a traffic light will become operational starting from today for vehicles coming from King Fahd Road at the intersection with Street 278 at Sabah Al-Ahmad Sea City.
