MP Yousef Al-Fadala intends to submit a bill prohibiting governmental sector employees from receiving special applications or requests from MPs in view of the medical tourism scandal.

After reviewing the National Assembly’s archives, Al-Fadala found a similar bill that several lawmakers, including Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim and MP Abdullah Al-Roumi submitted in 2009.

He unveiled his plan to rewrite the bill and then submit it in order to prevent MPs from putting pressure on governmental sector employees to grant their special requests.

He believes his proposal is a solid step towards the implementation of reforms and combating corruption in governmental institutions where erroneous applications and unethical request letters are approved.

He pointed out this is an embarrassment to the Assembly, especially since there are MPs keen on fighting against this form of corruption and they have referred some of those involved in such unscrupulous acts to the Public Prosecution.

This is not a joke. One of my friends said this to me while strolling along the famous French street Champs Élysées, where the headquarters of Kuwait’s Health Office is located; just imagine the extravagance of this situation. My friend met a compatriot who was strolling down the street wearing shorts and with a gauze bandage covering one of his toes.

When he was asked what brought him to Paris, the fortunate compatriot responded by saying, “I felt a sudden pain in my toe”. Going back to Dr Hamada, this noble official is of the kind that is rarely found, not because of lack of sincere people but because of fear of repercussions that come from speaking the truth.

This is due to the fact that the medical tourism legislators will get even with the ministry by pursuing malicious inquiries related to their target who attempted to expose their cheap means of blackmailing the ministry and subduing its senior officials who, in this case, are in Ministry of Health.

This is exactly what we saw in the past years, with the exception of Dr Jamal Al-Harbi who was dismissed from his position via a controversial ministerial reshuffle, even though he had not completed his first year of seriousness and sincerity.

In reality, he was dismissed in order to sedate the headache that he had become to those who form our Kuwaiti Cabinet. In fact, one of the members of this controversial and outrageous assembly had proposed the establishment of a health office in Turkey. The reason is simple.

It is for those who run from the law and end up living in Turkey in order to escape from serving final court sentences. This infl uential MP, who fulfilled his promise of returning withdrawn citizenship wants to add in his controversial parliamentary record the issue of medical treatment for dissenters and law violators who have been found guilty and sentenced to serve jail terms.

If the government agrees to this in the way it agreed on the issue of restoring withdrawn citizenship, which represented a sheer demonstration of violation and trumping down of laws, we will give it the title of “government of corruption”, as we have become sick and tired of corruption even in Ministry of Health.
