KUWAIT CITY, June 1: MP Mohammed Al-Dalal has forwarded questions to Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sheikh Khaled Al-Jarrah Al-Sabah about the illegal entry of a person wanted by the law.
Al-Dalal said several media outlets recently published news about the entry of a person through Kuwait International Airport although he has been banned from entering the country, because he used the passport of another person.
The lawmaker pointed out this is a serious issue, especially since some parties have requested for lifting the entry ban imposed on certain people. He warned that such practices are extremely dangerous considering the impact on national security.
He argued using the passport of another person is considered forgery and impersonation, while the parties that applied for the visa of such a person misled the official bodies so they are accomplices in breaking the law.
In light of the above, he asked the minister to provide him with the passport data of whoever facilitated the entry of the banned person. He wants to know the parties involved in facilitating the entry at the airport, if the Interior Ministry investigated the illegal entry, results of investigation, and steps taken to prevent the recurrence of the problem.
Meanwhile, MP Ahmed Al-Fadel has submitted questions to Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and State Minister for Economic Affairs Hind Al-Sabeeh about the number of expatriates working in Kuwait Airways Corporation (KAC). He requested the names, designations and curricula vitae of expatriate workers in KAC, as well as the total number and health files of expatriate employees who are above 60 years old.
He also asked for a copy of the contract signed with an employee identified as Abdel Hafiz Bilgali and the duration of his contract for the position — expert (a) quality control. He explained that based on the letter from the director of the Human Resources Department, the contract of Bilgali was renewed for a year and he wants to know the legal basis for renewal.
On the other hand, MP Faisal Al- Kandari called on the top officials at the Ministry of Public Works, including the minister, to immediately address the problem along Sabah Al- Ahmad Road where sand piles have been causing accidents. He called for continuous monitoring of roads to ensure quick action in any situation to guarantee the safety of road users.
