KUWAIT: Processing of transactions of hundreds of people at the sea survey transportation department including fishing boats were ceased, rendering them idle due to a power cut on the ground floor of the department. President of Kuwait Fishermen’s Union Thaher Al-Suwayyan said this situation has been ongoing for weeks, which stopped part of the fishing fleet which is in need of speedy renewal of licenses to resume fishing and support food security, as imports from some countries are banned due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Suwayyan asked concerned officials to restore power as soon as possible to resolve the problem.
Kuwait Municipality said Farwaniya inspectors visited malls to make sure stores there are complying with municipal rules. They were headed by the violations inspection department’s Amina Al-Enezi, who said the visits covered 60 stores, resulting in issuing 23 citations for having unlicensed signs, adding signs and having signs with expired licenses.
