KUWAIT CITY, May 29: Kuwait Society for Human Rights (KSHR) condemned a Kuwaiti employer for humiliating and torturing his employee (an Egyptian) as shown in a recent video clip circulated on social media in which the citizen obliged the expatriate to remove his cloths before hailing the worst insult on him.
Statement issued by KSHR called for the intervention of government through the issuance of necessary laws to deter repetition of such evil acts. It stressed the perpetrator should be reprimanded legally, and also called the government to enforce Law 91/2013 concerning human trafficking and smuggling of immigrants.
It urged the Ministry of Interior to charge, arrest and refer the perpetrator to prosecution to face legal action for enslaving and humiliating a laborer, and violating all Kuwaiti laws and international conventions. Statement pointed to the sponsorship system as the main reason for the crime of employers enslaving their employees, and threatening them on arbitrary deportation. It also called for cancellation of administrative deportation by allowing the court to issue the final decision in that concern.
