The Finance Committee of the House of Representatives is conducting a very important investigation into the existence of fraudulent deductions from retirees’ salaries by informal associations, while

The Rapporteur of the Parliamentary Finance Committee for the fourth session, Dr. Ahmed Al-Saffar, in an interview with Al-Sabah,

     supporting them and
     providing facilities to them."  He pointed out that
"the other point is the emphasis on the issue of the Internet, because
electronic dealing is completely linked to the presence of a strong Internet in order for electronic dealing to take place," stressing that
"the citizen - until now - does not trust putting his money in banks, and
the process needs to build confidence among the citizen and those...

“in these aforementioned steps, the possibility of forgery operations is very narrow and even non-existent,

I deem it necessary to subject all those who They were referred to retirement from this category for review and scrutiny, knowing that
forgery operations are carried out
     through multiple mafias with the complicity of some employees in the relevant departments and
     forging the signatures of other employees.”  He added,

     protect the electronic system from hacking,

     preserve the confidentiality of the retiree (private code), while
     subjecting the relevant associations to periodic auditing, and
     deterring those who attempt to seize the funds of employees and retirees in loan and advance operations." And sale in installments.

“the meeting discussed the issue of
     dealing with (unlicensed) associations,
     installment sales operations, and
     receiving advances, and the emphasis on
     preventing any tampering in the sales process,
     verifying the information of the advance applicant, and
     protecting customers’ money from fraud.”
