Five Ghanaian women stranded in Bahrain
November 30, 2012, 19:42 GMT
Five Ghanaian women are reportedly stranded in Bahrain after their sponsors failed to secure them jobs in the Arab country.
The women namely Wasina Mahama, Beatrice Mensah, Beatrice Bonsu, Barbara Haruna Hamain and Sheila in an interview with Adom News revealed that they were promised jobs as waitresses, hairdressers and house helps but are now being forced to do other jobs, including prostitution.
According to the women, they have refused to engage in prostitution and have been maltreated as a result, with some alleging that they are only given bread with little water and locked up in rooms all day.
They indicated that at times lighters are used on them to extort money from them.
The suffering Ghanaians in Bahrain claim they paid between GH¢1500 and GH¢3000 to their agents who have gravely disappointed them.
One of the women gave the name of her agent as Alahji Ibrahim who lives around the Abossy Okai roundabout.
The women told Adom News that they have been camped in a room and their cost is being negotiated between their sponsors in Bahrain and potential clients.
Relatives of the stranded women are calling on government to intervene and save the lives of their loved ones.
Meanwhile, Tema office of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), which broke the news has written to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to intervene and secure the release of the women.
In an interview with Adom News, the women who identified themselves as Wasina Mahama, Beatrice Mensah, Beatrice Bonsu, Barbara Haruna Hamain and Sheila and hail from different parts of the country said they were promised jobs as waitresses, hairdressers and house helps but they are being forced to do other jobs including prostitution.
Their refusal to comply has resulted in their being locked up and fed on only bread; according to them, even the water is rationed.
From the SOFREP site:
The market for pretty Russian women in the Middle East is strong. I remember a wealthy Saudi man once told me that “Allah has no eyes in Bahrain” or “الله لا عيون فى البحرين”, he was referring to prostitution of course.
It’s also no secret to anyone in the military who has served in Bahrain that just outside the main US gate there are several Hotels that house Russian hookers. They’re literally under house arrest and not allowed to leave the confines of the hotel.
