  6. Bahrain refuses to regulate ‘excessive’ bonuses

    Bahrain’s Shura Council has again refused to regulate bonuses paid to board members of government organisations after MPs complained that some officials were pocketing excessive payments for having their name on the board of several companies.

    The members of government bodies, councils and committees were receiving payments sometimes worth quadruple their monthly wages, the MPs claimed according to Gulf Daily News.

    Board members of a committee or council formed by a royal or Cabinet decree earn between BD650 ($1,723) and BD8,000 ($21,217) per monthly meeting or BD160 ($424) per weekly meeting, according to the Civil Service Bureau.

    Board members of other government organisations can receive up to BD5000 for an annual meeting or as little as BD50 for a weekly meeting held within work hours.

    The Shura Council’s financial and economic affairs committee chairman Khalid Al Maskati said the MPs call to unify bonuses was unfair because each board had different requirements.

    “Bonuses differ from one board to another depending on work and giving the same [to members of different boards] is a squandering of money and would not achieve goals of regulating spending,” he said.
