Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By A Saleh

Chair­man of Ish­be­lia Co­op­er­a­tive So­ci­ety Bus­sam Al-Mu­tairi said the Al-Durra Do­mes­tic Help Com­pany will start work in Septem­ber, adding that the so­ci­ety will pro­vide all pos­si­ble fa­cil­i­ties to or­ga­nize the process of bring­ing in work­ers. Mu­tairi said he held a tech­ni­cal meet­ing with the com­pany’s op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor Ah­mad Al-Fares in the pres­ence of co-op sec­re­tary Saad Al-Rasheedi. Some Asian coun­tries were ap­proved for bring­ing in do­mes­tic help, in­clud­ing Philip­pines, In­dia, Mada­gas­car, Nepal and Sri Lanka. He said it was also agreed to ap­ply to hire helpers elec­tron­i­cally to help the el­derly and those with spe­cial needs. He said the pe­riod for a helper to ar­rive will be a min­i­mum of two months from the date of the ap­pli­ca­tion, adding that the guar­an­tee will be for six or three months as agreed. As for re­turned work­ers, the com­pany will take them back without a fee and pos­si­bil­ity of a re­fund, pro­vided that a six-month pe­riod has not elapsed.

Re­port ready

A re­port on the res­ig­na­tion of for­mer chair­woman of Kuwait Air­ways Rasha Al-Roumi will be ready by the start of the next term of the Na­tional As­sem­bly, the par­lia­men­tary in­ves­ti­ga­tion com­mit­tee said in a state­ment. The com­mit­tee will hold a meet­ing to­day with In­te­rior Min­is­ter Sheikh Khalid Al-Jar­rah to ask him where the Civil Avi­a­tion Depart­ment be­longs - to the in­te­rior min­istry or the state min­istry for eco­nomic af­fairs.

De­fen­sive plan

MP Nayef Al-Mer­das said the gov­ern­ment is us­ing a de­fen­sive plan against pro­posed laws. He said al­though it should take the ini­tia­tive and have dis­cus­sions with the ex­ec­u­tive author­ity, it is al­ways con­fronting laws tabled by MPs, the lat­est of which is the salaries and mil­i­tary al­lowances law that it re­turned it to the As­sem­bly on the last work­ing day be­fore Eid. He said the fatwa and leg­is­la­tion depart­ment, so­cial se­cu­rity, the fi­nance com­mit­tee and con­cerned min­is­ters did not op­pose it.

Pre­mier’s grilling

Min­is­ter of So­cial Af­fairs and La­bor and State Min­is­ter for Eco­nomic Af­fairs Hind AlSabeeh said the gov­ern­ment fully co­op­er­ates with the com­mit­tee study­ing aspects of the prime min­is­ter’s grilling, and it is ready to present all nec­es­sary in­for­ma­tion. She said she at­tended the com­mit­tee’s meet­ing and pre­sented every­thing re­lated to the is­sues brought up in the grilling. The com­mit­tee held a meet­ing to dis­cuss the grilling of the prime min­is­ter in the pres­ence of Sabeeh to dis­cuss the de­mo­graphic struc­ture and the high un­em­ploy­ment rate, but a lack of quo­rum pre­vented the meet­ing.
