Disburse Allowance That Was Previously Cancelled From Citizen
The Administrative Court of Cassation dismissed the request to suspend the execution of the verdicts of the Court of Appeals and the Administrative Court concerning the right of an employee of Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs to receive the money that was deducted from him, says Al-Seyassah.
The verdict affirms the right of employee of the ministry to receive the educational allowance that was previously cancelled. The lawsuit was filed by Lawyer Abdulaziz Al-Banwan on behalf of his client who graduated from the College of Arts and was appointed as a teacher in Ministry of Education.
He was later appointed as administrative researcher in Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs and then promoted gradually until he became the Director of Education Department in the ministry.
This department was included in the decision issued by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) for allocation of allowances for the Kuwaiti members of educational staff in Ministry of Education and Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs. According to another decision, those responsible for identifying the jobs included in the decision is Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs. Lawyer Al-Banwan said his client was eligible to receive the allowance as per the decision due to which he had received it.
However, he was shocked by the decision taken by CSC to claim that the allowance is not applicable for employees of Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs due to which they had to pay back the allowance they received. The court said the plaintiff deserves the allowance since he occupies a supervisory educational position in Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs.
