(MENAFN - Arab Times) Kuwait University has given notices to many of its foreign employees to end their services, and sources have named Civil Service Commission (CSC) as the authority obliging the university to end the services of foreign employees to pave way for the implementation of "Kuwaitization" project, which other government establishments and ministries have been implementing, reports Al-Anba daily.



Sources said the Secretary General of Kuwait University Dr Nabil Al-Waghani tried to convince the Minister of Education and Higher Education Ahmad Al-Muleifi at the meeting of the university board to exclude the sector from the ''Kuwaitization'', but the minister refused.



Sources indicated several faculty deans have declined to replace foreigners wih Kuwaitis, although the university's administrative affairs had sent end of service letters to foreign employees working in Kuwait University.
