Al-Ansari told the daily, “The results of the inspections conducted by the inspection department on these companies resulted in the transfer of 507 companies to the judiciary for committing various irregularities. These included what he said 12 violations of occupational safety, 88 labor law violations, 20 special permanent suspension of files in addition to 387 violations for violation the text of Article 10 of the Labor Code, which shows that the licenses to practice the activity of these companies are not listed in the titles, which confirms the lack of actual need to registered employment.

The violations were as follows 45 for occupational safety, 152 labor law violation, 75 permanent file suspension, and 83 for violating article 10 of the Labor Law
