KUWAIT CITY, Feb 9: Deputy Director of the Public Authority for Manpower Protection Dr Mubarak Al-Ja’afour declared the joint committee from various government agencies arrested 38 labor law violators in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh in a recent raid. He said 10 of them are on Article 18 residency, while 26 are on Article 20, and two of them shepherds.
He explained that the workers were arrested for being outside the location of their residencies, noting some of them don’t even have residency and others were caught working for employers other than their own sponsors.
He stressed that employers at the carpentry shop could not provide license for their activities in the basement, as well as the car washers. He assured those arrested will be deported and their sponsors blacklisted to ensure they do not sponsor other workers. He also said the committee will not stop until all violators are deported.
