Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By A Saleh

Di­rec­tor of Man­power at the Education Min­istry Saud Al-Juwaiser said the last batch of work per­mits for Egyp­tian and Jor­da­nian teach­ers who were con­tracted re­cently will be re­ceived dur­ing this week, adding the per­mits will be sent to em­bassies, which will con­tact the teach­ers. Teach­ers’ ar­rival will start on Au­gust 17, he said, adding that book­ings are al­ready made. As for the Pales­tinian teach­ers, Juwaiser said that their pro­ce­dures are dif­fer­ent, adding that the diplo­matic core at the In­te­rior Min­istry are work­ing on their is­sue to al­low en­try for 59 teach­ers, as 20 teach­ers chose not to work for the education min­istry.

The Health Min­istry is co­or­di­nat­ing with other state de­part­ments in­clud­ing Kuwait Mu­nic­i­pal­ity and the Public Author­ity for Hous­ing Wel­fare (PAHW) to al­lo­cate lands for an old project to build a modern cen­ter for phys­io­ther­apy in each health zone. The cen­ters will be built at state-of-the-art stan­dards in or­der to ex­pand phys­io­ther­apy ser­vices in all ar­eas.

Kuwait Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Cus­toms com­mented on a re­cent news­pa­per re­port claim­ing that a num­ber of con­tain­ers were smug­gled out of Shuwaikh Port shortly af­ter ar­rival there. The ad­min­is­tra­tion said that the con­tain­ers con­tained ce­ram­ics sent in one ship­ment on three sep­a­rate con­tain­ers. It said north port of­fi­cers are the ones who dis­cov­ered forgery in doc­u­ments that were made to avoid cus­tom duty and ship­ment fees. The con­tain­ers were fully in­spected ac­cord­ing to known cus­toms pro­ce­dures. As for the rea­son why the forgery was made to avoid fees, the ad­min­is­tra­tion asked the public pros­e­cu­tion to in­ves­ti­gate the case, and the case is still at the pros­e­cu­tion. The state­ment said an ad­min­is­tra­tive in­ves­ti­ga­tion is be­ing con­ducted and re­sults will be pub­lished as soon as they are ready.
