In an interview with the official Al-Sabah newspaper, Cougar said, “The amendments that arrived from the government to the draft budget are simple, as the numbers are the same, but there is a variable number, which is the number of the region’s employees, which has changed, as the number has been reduced, not increased.” LINK
