Food Authority inspectors launch first campaign

KUWAIT: Farwaniya Food and Nutrition Authority inspectors launched their first inspection campaign targeting various foodstuff stores and outlets in Khaitan, Ardiya industrial area and Riggae. The campaign resulted in filing 30 citations for various violations including hiring unlicensed workers, having no health certificates and opening unlicensed stores.

A number of legal affairs department employees at Ahmadi educational zone yesterday demonstrated in protest against their superior’s practices, declaring their refusal to cooperate with her and demanding her removal from office ‘to serve public interest.’ The Ahmadi zone had earlier rejected the superior’s transfer from Jahra to Ahmadi because she had been responsible for three legal violations, but the ministry insisted. The demonstrating staff members said they met with the Ministry of Education’s undersecretary, and that ministerial and parliamentary efforts are in progress to resolve the problem.
