KUWAIT CITY, June 25: The Misdemeanors Section in the Court of Appeals cancelled the ruling of a lower court that imposed KD48,000 fine in absentia on the owner of a company for hiring workers from abroad even if they are not needed, leading to the acquittal of the defendant, reports Al-Seyassah daily. Earlier, the Public Prosecution charged the defendant with recruiting workers from abroad even if his company does not need them as per the violation and inspection reports from the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor.

Lawyer for the accused, Attorney Jarrah Al-Shareka, argued in court that the documents presented as evidence do not contain anything to prove his client hired the workers even if they are not needed. He pointed out the record book of the director of the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) showed many contradictions and loopholes in the procedures followed.
