KUWAIT: Up to 111 officials have failed to disclose their financial assets as scheduled or have abstained from making the disclosure, Chief of the Public Anti-Corruption Authority Abdulrahman Saleh Al-Namash said yesterday.

These cases have been examined closely and referred to the competent investigative authorities, namely the public investigations authority, to take legal action against the non-abiding officials, Judge Al- Namash said yesterday.

Moreover, the authority has taken legal procedures, as stipulated by the relevant laws, against those who disclosed their assets late or those who have not done so at all. He advised all persons, subject to the assets’ disclosure regulations, to abide by the timetables to spare themselves punitive action.

These persons can get help from the authority either via the internet, the phone hotline or by visiting its headquarters.
