(MENAFN - Arab Times) Assistant Undersecretary for Citizenship and Passport Affairs Major General Sheikh Faisal Al- Nawaf has given the sponsors of domestic workers 48-hours to report employees that have absconded to avoid the legal responsibility in that regard, an Interior Ministry press release said. He was quoted as saying any sponsor that covers up run-away domestic workers or drivers will bear the cost of their deportation, noting such sponsors will fall under the clutches of law if they know of the hiding places of runaway domestic workers, while the return of these workers would not cancel the absconding report, indicating legal measures will be implemented against the workers and any person that shelters or employs them.



He stressed that Citizens Service Centers and the Immigration Investigation Department are all set to receive reports of absconding, adding the absconded domestic worker will be deported in line with the legal procedures if arrested, and they will not be allowed to return to the country. He stressed the meeting of the representatives of domestic workers at the end of March dealt with various negative phenomena caused by the marginal personnel and recommended effective solutions to protect the rights of sponsors, as well as domestic workers.



Also, they discussed the issue of runaway domestic workers, hikes in prices of recruiting them, and lack of diplomatic representation for some of these workers. He indicated the Interior Ministry seeks to protect all rights, urging the representatives of the domestic agencies to support the security systems by not sheltering residency violators or those wanted by law for criminal offenses, in order to escape the rigors of law.



For his part, the Director of Public Relations and Moral Guidance, Acting Director of Security Media Department Colonel Adel Al-Hashash confirmed that regulating the activities of domestic workers- drivers and cooks, has become effective after the meeting of the Assistant Undersecretary for Citizenship and Passport Major General Sheikh Faisal Al-Nawaf that paved way for resolving the complaints filed by citizens due to sufferings they endure with the absconding of their domestic workers. As regards individuals covering up absconding workers, Al-Hashash warned they will face the rigors of law, noting the ministry has allotted media plan to increase awareness among the citizens and expatriates on regulations governing the recruitment of domestic workers
