MP Omar Al Tabtabaei is expected to file a motion to grill Kuwait Oil Minister Bakheet Al Rasheedi for allegedly sending inaccurate answers to a series of questions about suspected corruption in the oil sector.
Parliamentary sources said the lawmaker refused to receive the answers of the questions, as he found that the minister was trying to protect senior oil executives from alleged corruption, Kuwait Times reported.
The questions, sent several months ago, inquired about allegations of rampant corruption among top executives in the state-owned oil sector.
Tabtabaei demanded an explanation regarding the allegations. But the answers were reportedly incomplete and contained inaccurate information about the issues raised, which the lawmaker interpreted as an attempt by the minister to shield the officials from questioning.
