MP Abdullah Maayouf has criticized responses made by Oil Minister Ali Al-Omair to the inquiries filed by MP Ahmed Al- Qudhaibi. Maayouf added that the minister had not yet taken any decisions about referring violators at the Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR) to the prosecution and warned that if the minister appoints the current acting PAAAFR director, who is already suspended from work, Omair would be putting the “last nail in the parliament-government cooperation coffin”.
