KUWAIT: Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Mohammad Al-Jabri fined a number of agricultural landholders for housing company workers in farms used to provide food security, adding all violators will be held legally accountable. Meanwhile, manpower authority director Ahmad Al-Moussa said inspectors have detected the transfer of some laborers from their accommodation to another site in Jahra to avoid the lockdown likely to be imposed on some areas.

Moussa added that on detecting the violation, the committee notified the Municipality and had Ministry if Electricity and Water disconnect power supplies at the residence involved in the violation.

Moussa explained that the company violation involves transferring workers without notifying the manpower authority, accommodating bachelors in non-designated areas and not getting the authority’s permission, which is usually granted after making sure the residence matches labor accommodation conditions.
