February 6, 2018, 8:33 am

The Parliament will discuss on Tuesday the letter of MP Omar Al-Tabtabaei requesting for approval of a proposal to ask the government to form a committee consisting of representatives from the ministries of Interior and Foreign Affairs and Al-Durra Company for Recruitment of Domestic Workers, reports Al-Rai daily.

The letter points out that the committee should also consist of any party concerned with the activities of Al-Durra Company and the problems it is facing.

The committee should find suitable solutions, hold accountable officials who caused problems the company is facing, and present its report to the Parliament within two months. In his statement to the daily, Al-Tabtabaei said he will reveal certain information to the Parliament on Tuesday.

He explained this information will expose some employees in the foreign affairs who conspired in dealing with the domestic workers file considering the company was established almost two years ago and it has not been able to perform its duties”.

He added the company for recruiting domestic workers was established to counter misuse of licenses to recruit foreign domestic workers and to curb visa trading and international condemnation of Kuwait as it has been accused of violating human and labor rights of expatriates.
