Health Min­is­ter Dr Ja­mal Al-Harbi agreed to grant bedoon and Gulf nurses two days off like their Kuwaiti coun­ter­parts dur­ing his meet­ing with the pres­i­dent and mem­bers of Kuwait Nurs­ing So­ci­ety (KNS). Harbi agreed to write to Deputy Prime Min­is­ter and Fi­nance Min­is­ter Anas Al-Saleh to ap­prove the amend­ment, KNS Pres­i­dent Ban­dar Al-Enezi said. Harbi also agreed to form a com­mit­tee with the min­istry and KNS mem­bers to eval­u­ate cer­tifi­cates of the nurs­ing in­sti­tute and give rec­om­men­da­tions to ap­point nurses who have com­pleted su­per­vi­sory cour­ses as nurses-in-charge and as­sis­tant nurses to meet a short­age in hos­pi­tals and med­i­cal cen­ters.

The crim­i­nal court sen­tenced ter­ror sus­pect Abu Turab to five years in jail and ac­quit­ted his mother of be­ing a mem­ber of the Is­lamic State (IS). Abu Turab con­fessed of go­ing to Syria and sell­ing oil to IS, but said he re­pented and re­turned. Sep­a­rately, the cas­sa­tion court de­ferred the case of for­mer MP Ab­dul­lah AlBarghash’s cit­i­zen­ship re­vo­ca­tion till Jan 24. Mean­while, lawyer Nasser Al-Ajmi from the Nasser Al-Nasser law firm said the com­mer­cial court ruled that an in­sur­ance com­pany has to pay a cit­i­zen KD 5,000 fol­low­ing a pre­vi­ous rul­ing against him. The court gave its rul­ing af­ter re­view­ing all doc­u­ments.
