KUWAIT CITY, May 18: Based on direct instructions from the First Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Interior and Acting Minister of Defense Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled to clean the labor market from violators and to adjust the demographics, campaigns launched by the Ministry of Interior and other concerned parties resulted in the arrest of about 600 marginal workers who have been referred to deportation prison during the past two weeks, reports Al-Qabas daily.

In the context of regulating the labor market and getting rid of law violators, many field campaigns were carried out by the tripartite committee led by the Public Authority for Manpower, with the participation of officers from the Residency Affairs Investigations Department and a number of sectors of the Ministry of Interior.

The field campaigns carried out by the tripartite committee revealed the increasing phenomenon of “fake doctors”, as a group of expatriates were caught in medical centers and private clinics practicing medicine and nursing, and providing specialized medical services without obtaining certificates or licenses that allow them to do so. Statistics issued by the tripartite committee showed that six of those arrested practiced the medical profession and treated patients.

Also, a large number of domestic workers and others were arrested for practicing medicine and nursing. Legal measures were taken against them through cooperation between the Ministry of Interior, the Public Authority for Manpower and the Ministry of Health. The field teams were also able to monitor and seize 15 dummy recruitment offices for the domestic workers. About 90 workers were found in violation of the residency law, as well as absconders who were working on the basis of daily wages. They were referred along with those who run these facilities to the concerned authorities, in preparation for their deportation from the country.
