The House of Representatives approved the formation of a committee to investigate the violations committed with regard to the collection of the Corona examination fees that occurred to the returnees at the depository.
According to the government’s Saba agency, the committee consisted of four members and a rapporteur, chaired by parliamentarian Abdul Razzaq Al-Hajri.
The decision specified the tasks of the committee to investigate the circumstances that took place, to investigate those involved, and to search with government agencies for an urgent alternative to the Al-Farabi laboratory at an appropriate price.
Appeals and complaints were directed by expatriates, in which they called for urgent intervention to reduce the examination costs imposed on them, which is estimated at 1,300 Saudi riyals, after linking them to private laboratories believed to be linked to the Yemeni consulate in Jeddah.
Prime Minister Moeen Abdulmalik has previously instructed the Minister of Foreign Affairs to “conduct the necessary investigation” regarding citizens’ complaints about imposing high fees for conducting “PCR” examinations for those wishing to return from Saudi Arabia to Yemen through the port of deposit.
It is estimated that there are 900 Yemeni stranded in Saudi Arabia who wish to return to Yemen, who cannot return before the Corona examination, but the sums required to pay it are large.
