Lankan janitorial workers to Kuwait suspended

The Foreign Employment Bureau has decided to suspend sending Sri Lankan maids to Kuwait for janitorial work. Deputy General Manager of the Foreign Employment Bureau L. K Ruhunuge said that the move follows the failure by Kuwaiti employers to pay the salary to the maids as previously agreed upon with the recruitment agencies. Mr Ruhunuge also said that the several Sri Lankan workers have lodged complaints against their employers in Kuwait. Investigations have been launched into the activities of at least six such agencies. (HG)
