KUWAIT CITY, Jan 6: Director of Legal Advice and Legislation Department in the Council of Ministers Judge Salah Al-Masad confirmed the legality of continuing the payment of financial reward for Kuwaiti workers in Kuwait Gulf Oil Company (KGOC), reports Al-Qabas daily. Earlier, the financial reward for the workers assigned in the divided zone was suspended. The government then asked the department to rethink the previous opinion that the reward is illegal as per the decision of the Oil Ministry to stop the payment of the reward due to the termination of an agreement between Kuwait and the Arab Oil Company.
The department pointed out that the Council of Ministers approved retention of the reward for Kuwaiti employees at the Arabian Oil Company Limited in the Khafji region, after informing the council about the objections of the Ministry of Oil to the continuation of the exchange as per the letter of the minister of information and acting minister of oil. It then obligated KGOC to pay the reward in accordance with the prevailing regulations in Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) and its subsidiaries. Meanwhile, Deputy Director of Kuwait Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha) Nawaf Al-Mahmal said Kuwait will soon publish its report, which includes its response to the selfassessment lists in the United Nations Convention, reports Al-Qabas daily.
