KUWAIT CITY, June 22: The Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) has issued a statement denying anything to do with the reported ‘execution’ of sniffer dogs that were supposed to be used by the company according to a contract with a local contractor, reports Al-Anba daily.
The KNPC official spokesman Khaled Al-Assousi said he regretted the action but has nothing to do with the company or the contract that has been since repealed due to the failure to meet certain security standards as stipulated by the contract which read: ‘A third party will examine the ability of the dogs to find explosives at oil installations.
The third party tested the dogs after concealing explosives in some vehicles but the dogs failed to detect them’ and the company had no option but to end the contract. Meanwhile, a Kuwaiti has filed a complaint with the Sabahiya Police Station accusing an Egyptian and two Syrians of swindling him, reports Al- Anba daily. The citizen told police the three men convinced him to open a a restaurant, received KD 12,000 from him and disappeared.
