KUWAIT CITY, July 18: With the trend of the use of some livestock pens and farms for purposes that were not licensed, new activities such as wedding halls have been introduced in the livestock pens and farms other than those previously exposed by inspection campaigns during which citations and warnings were issued, reports Al-Rai daily. In a press statement, the Deputy Director of the Livestock Sector in the Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources Abdul Mohsen Al-Mutairi explained that the most prominent violations monitored during the recent inspection campaigns by the food security team included using agricultural plots as wedding halls, subletting them or turning them into guest houses and parks.
This comes in addition to the previously recorded violations of using them as factories, carpentry or warehouses, farming outside the boundaries of the plots, setting up livestock sheds, neglect and lack of public hygiene, and non-payment of annual rental fees to the concerned authority. Al-Mutairi revealed that the sector’s food security team carried out inspection campaigns on the livestock pens to ensure that the numbers of sheep, cattle and camels at the site matched the authority’s records and the subsidized fodder card issued to it. He said, “The owners are asked to determine the location within 72 hours. If they do not respond and specify the location, the support card is suspended until the situation is modified.
This contributed to reducing the registered numbers, and reducing the disbursement of subsidized feed, which contributed to preserving public money. Under the directives of the Minister of Public Works Ali Al-Mousa, and with the follow-up and supervision of the Director-General Ali Al-Farsi, the inspectors of the livestock sector recently sent dozens of alerts to violators in the livestock pens in Kabd, Abdali farming, Wafra and Sulaibiya area.
In the event that the violations are not sorted during the current week, it will be cited and referred to the legal sector for further legal procedures to be taken against the violators”. Al-Mutairi called on violators to quickly remove the violations so that they are not exposed to a power cut, followed by the withdrawal of the agricultural plots from them, during the period specified for them in the alert.
