Migrants in KSA: 32 women urge PM to rescue them

28 Nov, 2019

A group of 32 female migrant workers in Saudi Arabia, who fled their employers following torture, yesterday begged Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to rescue them. In a video message, members of the group alleged that they received no help from the Bangladesh authorities in Saudi Arabia or anyone else. “Some of us have little children at home. Some lost their parents and children while staying here. We are suffering a lot. We beg you [Sheikh Hasina], please save our lives,” one of the victims said in the message. Jannatul Ferdous, an inhabitant of a deportation camp, told The Daily Star that all of them fled their employers following different forms of abuses -- physical, sexual and overwork -- and reached out to the Saudi police. Later, they were sent to a deportation camp in Riyadh.
