KUWAIT CITY, May 17: The State Audit Bureau (SAB) has warned about the possible recurrence of the Mubarakiya Market fire disaster in the Barayeh Salem project in light of the failure to impose fines on the maintenance company for not fulfilling the security, safety and firefighting requirements, reports Al-Jarida daily. In its annual report on comments regarding Kuwait Municipality contracts for the year 2020/2021; the bureau stated that results of field visits to the Mubarakiya Market, Shuwaikh Beach and Barayeh Salem showed the company did not take the necessary measures regarding security and safety requirements, as well as the absence of firefighting work in Barayeh Salem.

The bureau pointed out that the Municipality did not impose the KD20 fine per day since the date of commencing work on May 11, 2019 until the date of the field visit, in accordance with clause 20/2 of the contract; which stipulates such fine for failure to meet security and safety conditions as per the instructions of the Kuwait Firefighting Force administration.
