(MENAFN - Arab Times) The Administration Court ordered the Director of Fatwa and Legislation Department and Director of Legal Department at Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor to pay a fine of KD 100 each for failing to present its defense in a case filed by Lawyer Bassam Al-Asousi against the 'Islah Social Society' and Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor. Al-Asousi requested for the dissolution and liquidation of the society as it violated its establishment principles and objectives by interfering with political issues. The court will look into the case on 28th of December 2013.

According to the case files, Lawyer Al-Asousi stressed that HH the Prime Minister was the one with the authority to dissolve such societies like how he dissolved the 'Istiqlal Club' and 'Cultural Society'. However, he wondered why the Premier did not take any action against the Islah Social Society and implement the law as he did on others. He said the role of public utility societies is known, and has nothing to do with the country's politics. He revealed that the Islah Social Society had announced that its members will boycott the elections based on the Constitutional Court's ruling, stressing that such announcements are in violation of the society's functions.

He affirmed that the society issued statements and articles about the situation inside and outside the country. Lawyer Al-Asousi proved this by presenting to the court the society's statements regarding the events in Syria and Mali. He added that the society collected donations under the pretext of 'Zakat' despite the fact that it is not authorized to gather 'Zakat' in this country.
