Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Me­shaal Al-Enezi

Kuwait Fire Ser­vice Direc­torate (KFSD) de­nied ru­mors spec­u­lat­ing that one of its ve­hi­cles ap­peared in a video clip posted re­cently on­line by the Is­lamic State (IS) ter­ror­ist group. KFSD ex­plained in a state­ment yes­ter­day that all of its ve­hi­cles are closely mon­i­tored and their move­ments are known and recorded. It said that le­gal ac­tion has been taken to ar­rest the per­son be­hind spread­ing the ru­mors.

Spokes­woman of the par­lia­ment’s pub­lic fa­cil­i­ties com­mit­tee MP Ma­jid AlMu­tairi said the Min­istry of Pub­lic Works (MPW) has not held cor­rupt of­fi­cials and con­trac­tors to ac­count, ad­ding that Min­is­ter Ab­dur­rah­man Al-Mutawa did not take de­ter­rent ac­tions to­wards cor­rupt con­trac­tors, and warned him that he will ‘pay the price’ for ap­peas­ing them. He said the com­mit­tee con­tin­ues its in­ves­ti­ga­tions in the flood­ing of the Man­gaf tun­nel and other projects that wit­nessed sim­i­lar in­ci­dents.

The Pub­lic Anti-Cor­rup­tion Au­thor­ity said it sent sev­eral su­per­vi­sors and em­ploy­ees to the pub­lic pros­e­cu­tion fol­low­ing two com­plaints sub­mit­ted to the au­thor­ity. The charges in­clude forgery in of­fi­cial doc­u­ments and re­ceiv­ing il­le­gal money, among others.
