KUWAIT CITY, April 9: The Administrative Section in the Court of Appeals has obliged the Ministry of Education to pay KD24,000 to an engineer — the value of unpaid salaries from May 2022, reports Al-Seyassah daily. Attorney Abdullah Amin filed the case on behalf of his client — a senior computer engineer in the ministry who was surprised when the salary was not paid from May 2022 under the pretext of work interruption.

Earlier, the Administrative Court dismissed the case, but Amin maintained his defense at the Appeals Court. He presented a documentary portfolio and evidence of his client’s right to receive the unpaid salaries retroactively; taking into consideration that no penalty has been imposed on his client and was neither suspended from work nor referred for investigation. He argued the non-payment of salary decision was marred by arbitrariness and misuse of authority, as it was issued due to disagreements between the engineer and the direct supervisor (department head), as the latter was eligible for promotion to the department head’s position.
