Gold bullion as award

February 23, 2014

Muharraq Municipal Council member Ghazi Al Murbati has come forward, with a stern voice and expressed his great disappointment against his own municipality, for awarding its outstanding employees with 'gold bullions' during a recent ceremony held to honour them. According to Mr Al Murbati, this was an act that was against the rules and regulations issued by the Ministry of Finance and Civil Service Bureau. "I am surprised as to how the Municipality Administration could openly flout regulations overlooking the severity of the situation," alleged the Councillor. "They seem not to be bothered about the violations, apart from the many other offenses, one after another," he added. "The administration did not stop repeating the series of such violations, despite being alerted of its wrong doings," he stressed. "We were shocked when we found out that at a recent award ceremony, the municipality has opted to present gold bullion to its outstanding employees without taking into account the regulations and instructions issued to this context," he added.
