KUWAIT: A new mechanism to solve absconding labor problems will be submitted to the Interior Ministry’s Assistant Undersecretary for Citizenship and Residency Affairs Major General Sheikh Mazen Al-Jarrah Al-Sabah soon, said well-informed sources at the Manpower Public Authority. “The committee entrusted with studying absconding reports has come up with a new vision to end this phenomenon, whether the reports turn out to be true or false,” explained the sources.

The constitutional court yesterday deemed article 200 of the proceedings law as unconstitutional and thus allowed contesting rulings issued in misdemeanor cases before the court of cassation. The court also banned contesting Cabinet decisions concerning NGOs.

Sentenced upheld
The court of appeal upheld a death sentence issued against the prime suspect in a murder at Sulaibiya vegetable market. Notably, the criminal court had sentenced the prime suspect, a 21-year-old bedoon, to death, the second, a 17-year-old Arab, to 10 years in prison and fined the third and fourth suspects KD 500 each for the armed robbery at the market.

Parliament break-in
The court of appeal yesterday adjourned hearing a case filed against 70 citizens including former MPs for breaking into the parliament till December 20.
