Coun­cil mem­ber calls for raz­ing Sharq in­dus­trial area

‘Fake doc­tor’ lawyer re­manded in cus­tody

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Me­shaal Al-Enezi

Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil mem­ber and chair­man of the tech­ni­cal com­mit­tee Fahd Al-Sane pro­posed a speedy clear­ing of Sharq in­dus­trial area in or­der to rec­tify the sit­u­a­tion and re­move vi­o­la­tions there. His call came one day af­ter a blaze en­gulfed a garage in the busy com­mer­cial district of Kuwait City which is also home for some of the tallest sky­scrapers in the state’s cap­i­tal. Sane said that lands in the area are be­ing used for com­mer­cial pur­poses in vi­o­la­tion of what they are orig­i­nally li­censed for, ex­plain­ing that many build­ings are used as stores for tires and other highly in­flammable ma­te­rial with­out care for safety con­di­tions. Fur­ther­more, he de­manded that the sit­u­a­tion must be cor­rected, as plots are di­vided into sev­eral stores car­ry­ing out sev­eral ac­tiv­i­ties with­out a li­cense. He said there are also con­struc­tion vi­o­la­tions there.

The pub­lic pros­e­cu­tion de­cided to de­tain lawyer Hani Hus­sein for 21 days and send him to the cen­tral prison over false in­for­ma­tion about the case of a Bangladeshi doc­tor who he claimed had im­per­son­ated a Kuwaiti physi­cian. The ‘fake doc­tor’ was a main topic of ru­mors which spread in the past few days over so­cial me­dia, and at­tack­ing the health min­istry.

Road open­ing

The en­gi­neer­ing sec­tor at the Min­istry of Pub­lic Works (MPW) is pre­par­ing to open the ser­vice road to­wards Kuwait City from cross­road C10 till the cross­road C11 with a length of 1.150 km dur­ing the first week of Au­gust. Sources at the min­istry said the open­ing is part of a project to con­struct and main­tain roads and cross­roads on the western part of Ja­mal Ab­dul-Nasser Street, which is be­ing ex­e­cuted at a to­tal cost of KD 34.934 mil­lion. The ser­vice road open­ing will serve traf­fic com­ing from Doha to­wards Kuwait, while the traf­fic light at C10 will be re­moved, the sources added.
