KUWAIT CITY, Oct 5: It’s crystal clear indication, the concerned authorities have failed to get rid of vice and all sorts of illegal activities in the district of Jleeb Al- Shuyoukh which has become a breeding ground and hotbed for ‘menial’ workers and outlaws to promote their illicit activities from sheltering runaways, to running alcohol breweries in spite of government efforts, particularly during the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, to flush out runaways and violators of residence and labor laws, reports Al- Jarida daily. According to sources, the area is unhygienic with sewage water overflowing, which some say is deliberately done by the residents of the area, to prevent the security from conducting orderly security campaigns where hundreds of illegal commercial activities are carried out and restaurants which more often than not sell food to make fast money which is believed to be unfit for human use. Most of these establishments do not have a license and lack lowest levels of cleanliness and occupational safety.
The daily accompanied the Jleeb Joint Committee, led by the Public Authority for Manpower, during the inspection tour of the region and arrested dozens of workers – residence and labor law violators and absconders. The head of the committee, Mohammad Al-Dhafiri, told the daily the successive inspection campaigns conducted by the committee since the middle of last month until date, led to the arrest of 107 violators of residence and labor laws – 56 working in the private sector and 34 domestic workers in addition to 17 who are staying illegally in the country. During the inspection tour the committee members also dismantled makeshift wooden houses built on rooftops of some buildings.
