(MENAFN - Arab Times) MP Riyadh Al-Adsani praised Minister of Oil Dr Ali Al-Omair for the steps he has taken to resolve the issues the lawmaker raised earlier. Al-Adsani said he will no longer push through with his plan to submit an interpellation request against the minister due to the latter's cooperation. He confirmed the minister had stopped violations in the distribution of farm lands, took the necessary legal procedures against erring officials, and answered his queries on the Dow Chemical and diesel theft/spillage issues. He added the minister deserves praise as he proved his willingness to cooperate by taking these steps.



He explained that his threat to submit an interpellation motion against the minister was merely a supervisory maneuver aimed at ensuring everything is running on the right path. He asserted hostility through interpellations was never his end-goal as he merely wanted to protect public interest and put a stop to violations by activating the minister's supervisory role over officials who cause harm to the government and public funds. He added he gave the minister three days to correct the errors and since the minister has cooperated with him, his interpellation threat has been rendered unnecessary. "We should not stop here, as the necessary follow-up steps must be taken to ensure supervision over officials who squander public funds," he concluded. Meanwhile, the attention of some MPs has been directed at the minister of finance in the past couple of days due to numerous violations in authorities and companies.




MP Faisal Al-Kandari explained the reason behind the amendments to the defaulters and family fund laws is to ease the financial burden of Kuwaitis who are in debt. He attributed the problem to the government's poor supervision over banks; consequently forcing the Assembly to shed more light on this issue to ascertain full compliance with the law among the banks. He also affirmed that the mistakes committed from 2002 to 2008, the period which led to the issue, will not be repeated; warning the repercussions will be severe if the minister fails to implement the amendments and maintain constant and strong supervision over banks



On the other hand, MP Hamdan Al- Azmi claimed the financial violations continue to spread within the management of National Offset Company (NOC) despite the numerous complaints sent to its higher management. Adding that violations and irresponsible decisions continue to spread while complaints and notices are being disregarded, the MP also mentioned the State Audit Bureau (SAB) had previously presented several reports which condemn NOC, as well as notices regarding its violations; but no one has done anything to correct these violations. Moreover, the MP wondered why there has been no initiative from the company officials or the government in terms of correcting millions of Kuwaiti dinars worth of violations. He urged the minister to clarify why he has not taken any action regarding this issu
