Labor refers more employers to prosecution Suspected to be involved in human trafficking

 KUWAIT CITY, May 12: Minister of Social Affairs and Labor, and State Minister for Planning and Development Affairs Hind Al- Sabeeh says the second batch of employers suspected to be involved in human trafficking has been referred to the Public Prosecution for violating articles of Law 6/2010 regarding working in private sector, and Law 91/2013 regarding combating human trafficking, reports Al-Jaridah daily.

She revealed that she will soon hold a meeting with the concerned officials of the ministry to file cases against the violators especially the employers who recruited workers from abroad without the need for them. She affirmed that the sudden inspections organized by the Inspection Administration of the Public Authority for Manpower exposed some employers who recruited large number of laborers from overseas and allowed them to work under other sponsors as well as established offices in locations different from the addresses specified in their commercial licenses.

She added that these violations necessitated referring those employees to the concerned authorities for necessary legal action against them. Meanwhile, sources revealed that about 2,469 company files have been referred to the General Department for Investigations in the first quarter of the current year, which is much higher than last year when only 250 files were referred to the concerned authorities.
