KUWAIT CITY, June 30: Minister of Justice and Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Dr. Fahad Al-Afasi recently received in his office Sheikha Fadia Saad Al-Abdullah who was accompanied by a delegation consisting of members of the Union of Victims of Real Estate Frauds, a number of Kuwaiti officials, and academics.
This visit was made based on the decision taken by His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled in response to Sheikha Fadia’s appeal concerning the importance of considering the suffering of those affected by real estate frauds, to assign the Minister of Justice to follow up this file and find final solutions to the issue that has aggravated in the current stage, especially after the disclosure of many corruption issues. Regarding the meeting with the Minister of Justice, Sheikha Fadia praised his large heartedness.
She explained that he listened attentively to every detail of that issue and promised to launch further studies with the aim of developing radical solutions to the problem that has so far claimed nearly 20,000 Kuwaiti victims as well as a number of Gulf nationals and expatriates. It led to the worst form of psychological and social impact among that segment of citizens after their savings were confiscated.
Sheikha Fadia praised the directions of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad in his recent speech when he stressed that “Kuwait before Corona is not Kuwait after Corona” and called for concerted efforts to cooperate and rebuild. She revealed that her attention in that case was caught by the fact that women were the target group, along with many men who fell into the trap of real estate frauds.
Sheikha Fadia stressed that they are malicious ideas that seek to strike the cohesion of the Kuwaiti family, which is destroyed by debts of the real estate companies such that they were not able to obtain the property or get rid of those debts.
