National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim

The National Assembly on Wednesday referred to the government a report by the parliamentary investigation committee on Kuwait's Investment Office in London, and bureaus overseas.

It also referred to the government a report by the parliamentary committee for protecting public funds on irregularities in deals selling state-owned property, besides the Assembly's recommendations on both.

The National Assembly held an in-camera session as demanded by the government to discuss the two reports, Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim said after resuming today's open session.

The parliament had discussed the reasons behind the government's request of the in-private session, which was approved by most MPs, Al-Ghanim said.

Rapporteurs of the two committees addressed the session, followed by Deputy Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Acting Oil Minister Anas Al-Saleh and MPs.

By the end of the session, the assembly agreed by 21 votes, out of 41, to refer the reports and the relevant recommendations to the government. Al-Ghanim then adjourned the session to the next one due on April 12.
