KUWAIT, May 12 (KUNA) -- Minister of State for Housing Affairs Jinan Boushehri announced Saturday a final report on suspected violations in allocating some housing units in South Khaitan has been referred to the Kuwait Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha).
The ministry's investigation committee examined four suspected allocations in the area, including two filed complaints, Boushehri, also Minister of State for Service Affairs, said in a press statement.
The committee reported one violation case in a housing unit that was not eligible for the allocation requirements for the South Khaitan area, and recommended the unit to be revoked due to infringement of allocation laws and regulations, she said.
It also recommended imposing sanctions on an executive and a manager for their negligence in reviewing the non-eligible case and failure in filing credible official report on the violations in the allocation procedures in the area, added the minister.
Coordination with the legal department is currently underway to take necessary measures in that regard, she said, adding the committee's final report has been referred to Nazaha to complete the investigation.
Any violation would be met with firm punishment on all individuals without any consideration of their job ranks and titles, Boushehri affirmed, noting law will apply to everyone.
His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah's directions, on combating administrative and financial corruption, and holding responsible those whose illegal actions led to corruption, are significant support to eliminating violations, and observing contraventions to file them to judicial bodies, she noted.
