KUWAIT CITY, Aug 24: According to informed sources, the decision issued by the Council of Ministers to dissolve the Communications Authority’s board of directors was based on a report by the Minister of State for Communications and Information Technology Dr. Rana Al-Fares, which was submitted to the government on behalf of the authority, reports Al-Seyassah daily.
The report contained major and shocking violations, including the appointment of 110 employees in a suspicious manner because they are the children of former MPs, ministers and officials in the 2013 and 2016 parliaments. The sources said, “One of the drawbacks included in the report is the existence of the process of renting three floors in the Al-Hamra Tower as the headquarters of the authority, despite the government handing over eight fully equipped floors in the Liberation Tower to the authority in 2017.
This cost the state losses amounting to KD 3 million and 200,000. The authority was also providing three car allowances for its boss”. They explained that the benefit policy adopted by the board of directors included a lawyer from the private sector, and a “Sharia graduate” who was appointed as director of the legal department and was given bonuses and increments that amounted to KD 3,600 per month. On top of this, he was also taking employment support while his office was still operating, which contributed to a loss of KD 147,000.
