KUWAIT: The constitutional court yesterday rejected a case filed to contest the constitutionality of Kuwait Airways Corporation (KAC), pertaining with the company’s privatization deal. The court also said that the financially faltering citizens’ fund that had been approved by the parliament was unconstitutional. However, legal sources said that the verdict does not cancel the fund founded in 2010 nor nullifies the settlements it made so far. “The verdict only cancels Article 8 of the law,” explained the sources.

He also urged the municipality to provide better cleaning services at all camping sites, including garbage containers collection, in order to protect the environment, flora and wild life.
