Col. Talal Al-Bedaiwi of the Civil Defense said expatriates will not receive compensation for damages they suffered from the recent rain water floods, Makkah daily reported.

He noted that the expatriates’ situation will be submitted to Makkah governorate for its decision on the matter.

Al-Bedaiwi explained that three committees have been set up in three Civil Defense buildings, in addition to six field committees which will monitor and survey damages to properties and vehicles.

“The committees are comprised of representatives of the Ministry of Finance, Makkah governorate, and the Civil Defense, which will decide on the compensation amount, which will later be paid to citizens who have suffered losses from the floods,” he said.

He pointed out that citizens should present their property deeds, rental contracts and electricity bills, while car owners should present their vehicles registration documents and a photo of the damaged vehicle.

He added that procedures do not include insured vehicles in the compensation  and that the compensation amount does not represent a full compensation for the damages, but is rather assistance from the government to the citizens.
