KUWAIT CITY, Jan 21: MP Safa Al-Hashim has threatened to grill HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah if he refuses to reveal the names of the individual who agreed to the condition of $100 million payment during negotiations on the Dow Chemical project and the individual who ordered the payment of the fine to the Dow Chemical Company, reports Alam Alyawm daily. In a press release, she said she has prepared a query to submit to the Prime Minister through which she will ask him for the names of the abovementioned individuals.
