Parliament strips MP Al-Fadhel of immunity
June 10, 2014, 1:41 pm

The National Assembly, Tuesday, approved lifting immunity of MP Nabil Al-Fadhel in relation to a press misdemeanor case but abstained from taking an identical step against fellow legislator, Hamdan Al-Aazmi, in "Al-Farwaniah's felony case."

The NA legal and legislative affairs committee had concluded that Al-Fadhel should be stripped of his parliamentary immunity, but advised against such action against MP Al-Aazmi, arguing that the case against him was "ungrounded".

Meanwhile, Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs and Acting Minister of Justice, Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah, affirmed the government keenness on protecting state personnel and facing any bid to target them.

MPs today discussed some recommendations regarding preservation of historical sites, namely a call on the National Council for Culture, Arts, and Letters to specify these historical locations and rebuild demolished ones, namely the arms market.

The recommendations emphasize necessity to maintain the Municipality Public Park, chronicling damage caused by the Iraqi aggression, rebuilding the national and scientific museums, conserving ancient palaces, names of historical locations, encouraging formative arts that chronicle the national heritage and history, as well as supporting media that serve this purpose.

Minister of Oil and Minister of State for National Assembly Affairs Dr. Ali Al-Omair affirmed during the session the government's keenness on food security, granting land plots to citizens for housing purposes, and supporting the Public Authority for Agriculture and Fisheries.
