‘State pays KD10m monthly to fake Kuwaitis in private sector’ MoCI instructs 5 new centers to enhance markets monitoring

 KUWAIT CITY, Aug 5: About 40 percent of the positions occupied by Kuwaiti employees in the private sector are fake, while around KD 10 million is being paid on a monthly basis to these employees, reports Al- Jaridah daily quoting reliable sources from Government Manpower Restructuring Program (GMRP).

They affirmed that GMRP will conduct inspection campaigns in the private companies that falsely employ Kuwaiti citizens for extorting state money, and take necessary legal measures against them, adding that GMRP took such decisions after its Inspection Department was recently instructed to combat this phenomenon.

They explained that the department coordinated with some concerned authorities in the country to list the companies that are involved in falsely employing Kuwaiti citizens in order to obtain part of the salary that they receive from the government.

Sources revealed that the commercial files of those companies, which are proven to be involved in this phenomenon, will be closed and the owners of those companies will have to refund all the money that GMPR paid the Kuwaiti employees of the companies.

Meanwhile, Deputy Premier and Minister of Commerce and Industry Dr Abdulmohsen Al-Mudej has instructed five new centers, which are affiliated to the Department of Commercial Supervision and located in three governorates, to enhance their performance in monitoring the markets of those governorates, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting sources.

They explained that the five new centers are Kout center in Ahmadi Governorate, Kabad Center in Jahra Governorate, and Arai, Mubarakiya and Sharq centers in Capital Governorate. In the meantime, Minister of Social Affairs and Labor, the State Minister for Development Affairs Hind Al-Subaih has listed steps to correct the course of activities of charity groups, reports Al-Qabas daily.

She pointed out that charitable foundations will be obliged to issue documents in transparency documents declaring the source and destiny of the money collected so that people willing to join them will become familiar with their goals and programs. She stressed official authorities empowered to collect funds must obtain receipts endorsed by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor or else the donation collection process will be rendered illegal.

She said any illegal business will certainly be suspended and law applied in that regard against violators without bias, adding ‘there will be no discrimination at the expense of the national security’. Meanwhile, the minister is said to have informed cabinet the surveillance sector in the ministry is not proficient, but the house will be arranged from inside before surveillance is implemented, noting the minister personally follows up procedures to shut down all charitable authorities that violate law.
