‘Need to compensate athletes who compete internationally’ MoI urged to apply legitimate retreat policy for prisonsers

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 16: MP Abdullah Al-Ma’youf has recommended granting more privileges to Kuwaiti athletes who compete internationally, such as indemnity which will be calculated based on the years of achievement, reports Al-Rai daily. In a recent press statement, Al- Ma’youf warned that Kuwait’s sports sector is on the verge of collapse as any amendment to Sports Law number 26/2012 will not have any impact on international laws. He stressed the need to compensate athletes who have rendered dedicated service to the nation. He pointed out these athletes must be given more consideration and benefits, instead of searching for a sheikh or trader to sponsor them

. He also urged the sports clubs to coordinate with the sports competition unions to lay down rules to honor athletes who compete internationally. He announced his plan to present a draft bill on the indemnity for athletes as per the number of matches and championships. He also expressed disappointment over the proposed allocation of KD15 millions for all athletes without taking into consideration the achievements of each of them.

Meanwhile, Chairperson of the parliamentary Negative Phenomenon Committee MP Hamdan Al-Azmi has asked Minister of Interior Sheikh Mohammad Al-Khalid to immediately apply the legitimate retreat policy for prisoners, reports Al-Rai daily. Stressing the need to enforce the decision as per the recommendation stated in a number of studies carried out earlier, Al-Azmi asserted the legitimate retreat will have a positive impact on the prisoners, particularly in their behavior. He cited the successful bid of other countries in this regard like France, Saudi Arabia and Switzerland. He added this legitimate retreat gives the prisoners their rights, indicating the rules and conditions should be applied properly for the benefit of the prisoners and their families.
