Decision to cancel Iraq travel permit requirement praised Probe unveils plots of Brotherhood: MP

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 11: MP Abdullah Al-Tamimi praised the decision taken by First Deputy Premier and Minister of Interior Sheikh Ahmad Al-Humoud to cancel the need for obtaining a permit to travel to Iraq in order to ease the obstacles that hinder the citizens from travelling to Iraq, reports Annahar daily.

In a press statement, he expressed his gratitude to the minister for such a thoughtful move, indicating that several citizens have business concerns and properties in Iraq due to which they are required to travel to Iraq frequently.

Kuwaiti Ambassador to Iraq Ali Al-Momen also hailed the minister’s decision, considering it as an assurance from the Kuwaiti government on the safety of the Kuwaiti citizens who travel to Iraq for business or religious purposes.

He stressed the positive influence this decision will have on the Iraqi government, as it will ease the commercial and economic movement between the two countries, adding that it will also solve the issues faced by several citizens who own properties in Iraq.

Meanwhile, MP Khalil Al-Saleh demanded Minister of Interior to investigate and unveil the plots of the Brotherhood Movement in Kuwait, insisting on using the information disclosed by Dubai Police Chief Lt General Dhahi Al-Khalfan about some organizations that are aiming to destabilize GCC security, reports Al-Rai daily.

In response to Al-Saleh’s statement, MP Khalid Al-Shulaimi said, “You all know I do not belong to the Brotherhood Movement. However, I refuse any illogical accusations against them. The Brotherhood Movement in Kuwait is a part of the Kuwaiti society and it is recognized as a political bloc. It is improper to accuse them randomly as their intentions are nationalistic.”

Meanwhile, MP Saleh Ashour has submitted a number of queries to Minister of Oil, reports Al-Watan Arab daily.

In one of the queries, the parliamentarian wants to know from the minister “What procedures have been taken by his ministry to float the tender for the fourth oil refinery, if any?”

He has asked the minister to provide him all details. He has also asked for a list of local and foreign companies that have applied for the tender?

He also wants to know if the procedures of floating the tender are in liaison with the build-operate-transfer and privatization.

In addition to this he wants to know if a joint company has been established to build the fourth refinery and if 50 percent of the shares are allotted for the citizens as per law No. 7/2008.
If the answer is negative to the above, he wants to know the reasons.
