Easy to infiltrate automation system of MoSAL – sources ‘Labor’ employee admits of fraud

KUWAIT CITY, Feb 14: “The software system that interlinks ministry’s data is easy to infiltrate”, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting reliable sources from Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor.

They cited an incident wherein an employee of one of the labor departments infiltrated the system and managed to install a software program that allowed him to access the computer of any employee without the need for password.

They revealed that the former director of the department discovered this matter after he noticed changes made to the data of companies without any reason, adding that he had also received complaints from several companies about these changes.

They explained that the suspected employee used to report for duty early everyday and leave late, adding that they noticed the changes in the system were carried out around 6:00 am and around 2:30 pm.

They added after the director contacted the immigration detectives, the latter monitored the employee and eventually summoned him for questioning. During interrogations, he confessed that he had infiltrated the automation system several times for various company representatives (mandoups) who paid him huge sums of money. He explained that when a certain company’s employee count reaches the maximum limit, he would transfer the employees to another big company with unused employee slots in order for the former company to recruit more employees.

Sources pointed out that almost KD 25,000 was confiscated from the suspect’s account after he admitted to investigations that he had acquired the money as bribes from several company and its representatives during his employment in the department.
