Municipality closes over 85 violating basements in investment properties

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 25: The Kuwait Municipality has closed more than 85 violating basements that are commercially exploited in investment real estate areas, as part of its campaign carried out by inspection teams which began on the 4th of this month, reports Al-Jarida daily. The head of the Violations Removal Department in the Municipality, Abdullah Jaber, said in a statement to reporters on the sidelines of a tour of the inspection teams in the Capital governorate that a violating basement that was being commercially exploited in an investment property in the governorate was sealed.

Jaber explained that the tour aimed to ensure the owners’ commitment to vacate the violating warehouses and to abide by their commitments to the Municipality and the fire department laws and regulations. He stressed the need to voluntarily vacate the violating basements by the property owner, stressing that failure to comply with the laws of the Kuwait Municipality and the General Fire Department will result in issuing several citations against the owner, including administrative closure, and placing a “block” on the file of the property owner.

He pointed out that the application of the law comes to preserve people’s lives, explaining that inflammable materials pose a real danger to the residents of those buildings, and will also pose difficulties for the firefighting force to extinguish these fires in the presence of these dangerous materials. He indicated that the campaign will continue until it is confirmed that there is no rented basement in the investment places in violation of the requirements of the General Fire Department. He pointed out that there will be no exceptions to remove the violating warehouses in the investment buildings that violate the law and threaten people’s lives.
