Kuwait Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha) announced that it has referred 57 supervisors and executive officials in the Kuwait Municipality to the Public Prosecution on charges of forgery, local media reported.
According to well-informed sources, about 57 employees of the Hawally Municipality were referred to the prosecution.
They were previously referred for investigation by the Deputy Director General of Hawally Municipal Affairs Ahmed Al Hazeem, as most of them do not report to work and they lacked excuses for doing so.
In a press statement, Nazaha affirmed its intention to continue efforts and procedures to investigate all serious corruption reports that it receives.
It expressed appreciation for the role played by whistleblowers in helping the authority access the necessary information and data on corruption incidents.
