KUWAIT CITY, Jan 11: In an ongoing effort to enforce municipal laws, the Ministry of Interior, in collaboration with the Public Authority for Industry and Manpower, the Public Authority for the Environment, and the Environmental Police, conducted a comprehensive campaign in various sections of the Shuwaikh Industrial Area.

This operation, which involved 180 personnel from the participating entities, targeted garages and shops suspected of violating regulations, reports Al-Rai daily. The campaign yielded several violations and warnings, encompassing issues related to hygiene compliance and failure to meet environmental requirements.

Additionally, 28 individuals violating residency laws were apprehended and turned over to the relevant authorities. The inspection included the suspension of 24 offices in line with the recent decision on domestic labor prices. This decisive action underscores the authorities’ commitment to maintaining order and adherence to regulations.

Sanitation Supervisor Salah Al-Farhan, commenting on the joint efforts, stated, “Our focus during these campaigns was on the shops and garages along Mohammad bin Al-Qasim Street. The aim was to monitor any violations related to their operations, including infringements against garage owners breaching municipal laws, such as violations related to cleanliness and road occupancy.”

Director of the Inspection and Control Department at the Environment Public Authority, Nada Al-Dabash, highlighted the authority’s participation in the campaign to monitor environmental violations.
