A recent report released by the Ministry of Finance indicated the Ministry of Communications was unable to collect KD 94.400 million in accumulated bills from consumers as of November, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

The daily quoting a source said the debts related to telephone, postal and telegraph services provided to individual and corporate bodies. The report cautioned against public funds wastage, seeing that the bills have been accumulating for several years and moved from one budget to another without collecting it.

Sources cast blame on the concerned department in the ministry based on lackluster attitude of the officials, indicating weakness of the mechanism of operation., and accused the department of depending on an outdated model of collecting overdue bills in the current period where counterparts in other ministries are using modern technology to boost the national treasury and creating alternative sources of income, apart from crude oil.
