Officers from the General Department for Residency Affairs Investigations arrested a gang led by an Ethiopian woman for housemaid trafficking in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh area.
According to a press statement issued by Ministry of Interior, the arrested gang members included a driver and 12 housemaids. When the department received information from a reliable source about the gang swindling a number of residents of Kuwait after creating an impression that it is affiliated to a domestic labor bureau, a team was formed for investigations.
After arresting the suspects, they discovered that the housemaids including the Ethiopian ringleader are either involved in immoral cases or are reported as absconding. They were referred to the concerned authorities for necessary legal measures.
