The administration of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has allegedly committed a number of violations, leading to wastage of a huge amount of money from the State budget, reports Al-Shahed daily quoting sources. Sources disclosed the company that signed a contract with the administration for several years to provide technical land services at Kuwait International Airport is said to have been using land owned by the administration without paying rent estimated at KD750,000.
Sources added the administration also prevented the State from earning around KD800 due to its decision to reduce the rental fee for a storage space utilized for a shipping building in favor of an investor. Sources explained this is a violation of the stipulations of the contract since the administration did not ask the Ministry of Finance to specify the rental fee.
Sources went on to say the administration has allocated land areas for infrastructure investors but these plots have been idle for years, resulting in losses of about KD3 million. Sources revealed the DGCA has no regulations on the allocation and usage of land.
