Govt keen on collecting unpaid dues

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 22: The government is keen on collecting unpaid dues, asserting these are public funds which should be protected as they are the assets of all Kuwaitis, reports Al-Rai daily quoting sources.

Sources affirmed the Ministry of Finance is in the process of determining cases that took a long time for litigation, indicating the ministry assigned this task to its Legal Affairs Sector.

Sources disclosed that the assignment includes laying down a mechanism to speed up litigation procedures, in cooperation with the Fatwa and Legislation Department, in order to protect public funds and ensure the collection of unpaid dues. Sources said the ministry tackled 45 percent of the comments of the State Audit Bureau and settled 38 percent, while 17 percent remain in disagreement with the bureau.
