KUWAIT CITY, Feb 24: Kuwait Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha) announced that it has referred supervisors and executive officials in the Kuwait Municipality and others to the Public Prosecution on charges of forgery, based on articles No. 257, 259 and 260 of the Penal Code.
According to informed sources, about 57 employees of the Hawally Municipality were referred to the prosecution. They were previously referred for investigation by the Deputy Director General of Hawally Municipal Affairs Ahmed Al-Hazeem, as most of them do not report to work and they lack excuse for doing so.

It expressed appreciation for the role played by whistleblowers in helping the authority to access the necessary information and data on corruption incidents.
