KUWAIT CITY, March 29: Public Authority for Anti Corruption has referred six officials who were obliged to declare assets to the Public Prosecution Department for failure to submit their asset declaration within the specified period, says Al-Seyassah.
The anti-graft authority explained circumstances under which the officials were referred to prosecution from various sections. The officials include government, parliament and executive members of cooperative societies. It clarified the affected officials submitted their asset declaration.
However, they were referred to the public prosecution for not meeting the specified period. The authority urged all officials who are under obligation to declare assets based on law number 2/2016 to do so within the specified period to avoid legal procedures and subsequent penalties. It also urged officials to contact the authority via phone number 118 or visit the office in Shamiya during official working hours for enquiries.
