MP Riyadh Al-Adsani congratulated the Board of Trustees and staff of the Anti-Corruption Public Authority after the Constitutional Court rejected a petition challenging the constitutionality of law number 2/2016 on establishing the authority and provisions about financial disclosure.

Al-Adsani wished the chairman and members of the Board of Trustees and all employees of the authority success in their endeavor in accordance with the principles of transparency and integrity in order to protect State agencies from corruption and abuse of power.

In a related development, Secretary General of the National Democratic Alliance Bashar al-Sayegh urged the authority to perform its role and carry out its tasks, especially now that the fear of abolition is over.

Al-Sayegh disclosed the authority is dealing with many complaints against former and current ministers and leaders that require thorough investigation.

He stressed the need for transparency in the work of the authority for them to gain the trust and support of citizens in facing the corrupt. He warned that any delay in handling complaints and taking the necessary procedures will put doubt or suspicion on the work of the authority.

He also emphasized the need to make citizens partners in oversight and holding accountable all ministers, MPs and State officials proven to have committed violations. He praised the citizens for their keenness in submitting complaints in a bid to protect public money and the administrative system from corruption as the government failed to do its job. He called to mind the role played by MP Rakan Al-Nisf and former MP Ahmed Al-Qudeibi in the ratification of the Anti-Corruption Authority Law in the 2013 Parliament.

This is after the constitutional revocation of the first law, he added. Meanwhile, MP Waleed Al-Tabtabaei has submitted questions to acting Minister of Finance Anas Al-Saleh regarding the sale of shares to Mobile Telecommunications Company.

He requested for names of those appointed as board members from governmental agencies, results of the board members’ voting on the decision to sell the shares and copy of the minutes of the meeting in this regard. He asked about the mechanism adopted by Kuwait Investment Authority (KIA) in assessing the shares before selling them, reasons behind discrepancies in the prices of shares sold by the authority and that of other investors.

He also wants to know if the representative of the authority was aware of a foreign investor’s desire to acquire shares in a bid to enter the board of directors and if it studied the risks and repercussions of the sale on the Kuwaiti market.
