MoC Set To Cut Telephone Lines Of Defaulters

Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs at the Ministry of Interior Major General Abdullah Al-Muhanna recently issued a circular on the need to inspect all departments and sectors affiliated to the General Traffic Department (GTD) to ensure strict compliance with traffic regulations among employees, civilians, professionals and military officers; and that none of them commits violations by abusing his position, reports Al-Rai daily.

According to the circular, some GTD employees have violated traffic rules such as putting posters in their cars, having tinted windows and removing the plate numbers; indicating these acts have tarnished the reputation of the department and the ministry.

The circular also stated that instructions have been given to the Inspection and Monitoring Department to look into all sectors in GTD and investigate alleged violations committed by the staff, as well as to strictly apply the law on the violators to serve as an example to other motorists. The department has also been asked to submit reports regarding the inspections and investigations.

In another development, the Ministry of Communications has advised subscribers to pay their accumulated telephone bills prior to the implementation of the automatic disconnection of lines this August, reports Al- Anba daily quoting sources.

Sources revealed the ministry will first send warning messages on Aug 9 urging the concerned subscribers to pay their bills to avoid disconnection, followed by a second warning message on Aug 16 and then disconnection of lines on Aug 23 for those who fail to settle their bills.

Sources explained the automated disconnection system is applicable to subscribers whose accumulated bills reached KD 50 or more for residential telephone lines and KD 100 or more for commercial lines.
