MPs, citizens vent anger on TEC CEO
KUWAIT CITY, Nov 22: The series of frauds being committed against the people of Kuwait continues. The latest is evident from the reports of supervisory authorities which confirm the existence of serious financial and administrative violations in the Tourism Enterprises Company. However, government agencies insist that the company is innocent of these violations and that it aims to develop the tourism and entertainment sector in Kuwait, reports Al- Nahar daily. Angry parliamentary and popular messages were sent by MPs and citizens via Twitter to the Tourism Enterprises Company and its CEO about the company’s performance, which is deteriorating day after day.
The Chairman of the Public Funds Protection Committee MP Dr. Abdullah Al-Turaiji sent a message to the Minister of Finance via Twitter in which he indicated that the process of saving the company and its facilities and restoring life to it should begin with the dismissal of its CEO, as the public interest cannot tolerate further delay. He shared the discontent of a large number of Twitter users who stressed that the CEO is happy to close the Entertainment City.
They lamented that the next is worse in light of the fact that the administration wasted half a billion dinars of public money through the exploitation by investors of unlicensed spaces in its sites. They explained that the company signed consultancy contracts worth 14 million but only one percent of the projects have been completed. The company wasted more than KD 654,000 on the VIP Terminal project, which was not completed and was canceled after years of useless and unjustified studies and consultations. The Twitter users commented on the State Audit Bureau’s report regarding the company’s performance by saying, “Smile, it is a ruin!” In addition, reliable sources indicated to the daily that the series of destruction in the company continues with the continued bad performance of the administration, especially when comparing its tourism projects in terms of development with that of the neighboring countries. They said they wondered from where the company implements its projects and increases its capital.
