(MENAFN - Arab Times) A number of lawmakers, including MP Mohammed Al- Hadiya have reacted to the scandal of retiring a leader in the Interior Ministry and punishing 12,000 victims who secured visas through suspicious channels and have since been blacklisted, warning the Ministry of Interior must apply law equally on everyone, reports Al-Rai daily. Al-Hadiya said the decision to retire leaders who have been accused of crime is tantamount to rewarding them and concealing the truth. For his part, MP Humoud Al- Hamdan called for the ministry to pay more attention to the victims whose residencies have been forged visas and reprimand those who facilitated and completed the illegal transactions.

The National Assembly is preparing for a new phase of cooperation between the two authorities, away from constitutional dilemmas that impeded the legislative and regulatory works in the past. In a recent press statement, member of the Constitutional Experts Agency at the Assembly Dr Mohammad Al- Filly explained the agency will present a collective point of view on all issues which will be referred to it. He believes this is better than presenting individual opinions, especially on legal and constitutional differences.

He said he is waiting for instructions to start work in the agency which was announced by Parliament Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanem on Dec 24, 2013. He hopes the agency will succeed in its task, such as presenting views on issues that will be referred to the Parliament Office and then the Assembly to take the necessary decision. He affirmed the agency is keen on taking serious steps to address various issues in line with the constitutional and legal frameworks.

Minister of Social Affairs and Labor Thikra Al-Rashidi has referred the ministry's assistant undersecretary and a number of employees to the public prosecution on charges of wasting government funds due to their lack of interest in a specific project, noting the project was delayed because specialists were not assigned for that purpose, reports Al- Watan Arabic daily.

A source said the act is considered an absolute violation of the law protecting public funds, and that the minister has stated in a memo she sent to the Attorney General that the punishment for such crime is a minimum of three years imprisonment and fine no less than 20,000 dinars or exceeding 100,000 dinars. She also demanded the dismissal of the employees in question if they are found guilty.
