Category: Kuwait Local News

Two Ethiopians were arrested along with 22 domestic workers for running a bogus manpower office and trading with domestic workers who were reported as absconding. According to a press statement issued by Ministry of Interior, when General Department for Residency Affairs received information about this gang, investigations were carried out by a team that was formed for this purpose.

The team discovered that the owner of the bogus office would reach an understanding with housemaids who ran away from their sponsors’ house. He provided shelter for them and jobs under different sponsors. Securitymen raided the office and arrested the Ethiopian expatriate and his female assistant of same nationality.

They also arrested 22 other individuals who were in violation of the law such as absconding reports against them and their involvement in some cases. Arrest warrants were also issued against some of them. All arrested individuals were referred to the concerned authorities for necessary legal action against them.

General Department for Residency Affairs urged Kuwaiti citizens and expatriates to deal with only licensed domestic labor offices in order to avoid being cheated. It requested those with information about such bogus domestic offices to contact General Department for Residency Affairs.
