Reliable sources revealed that the file of the company will be suspended and referred to the concerned authorities if it fails to grant the laborers their rights.

Serviceman probed for taking part in rally : The Assistant Director of Capital Security Department Brigadier Hussein Al-Shirazi referred a sergeant in the Department of Relief Operations for investigation because he participated in a recent sit-in the fans of Arabian Club conducted in front of the Football Federation in Adailiyah, reports Al-Anba daily. A security source said legal measures have since been taken against the staff sergeant based on the instructions of the Interior Ministry, since the sector employees are not allowed to take part in any form of rally to maintain the neutrality of servicemen, irrespective of the reasons for conducting such activities.
