    • You are right. I hope that the pro-democracy movement in Bahrain will manage to end the dictatorship. If the Bahraini royal family would get no more British, US and other weapons to oppress workers that would be progress already.

  8. New clamp on illegal expatriates planned

    Posted on Friday, March 22, 2013

    THE Interior Ministry yesterday signed a memorandum of understanding with the Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) to crack down on illegal expatriate workers.

    Inspector-General Major-General Ibrahim Habib Al Ghaith signed the deal with LMRA chief executive Ausamah Al Absi.

    Under the agreement, a centre will be set up to shelter 300 runaway workers before their deportation.

    The Interior Ministry will also join ranks with LMRA officials to refer violators of labour laws to authorities prior to their deportation.

    Thirty Interior Ministry employees will be assigned to help LMRA inspectors to enforce labour market regulations and track down violators.

    Major-General Al Ghaith highlighted the directives issued by Interior Minister Lieutenant-General Shaikh Rashid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa to back official efforts in combating the phenomenon of illegal workers.

  14. Suicide bid woman recovering…

    By FRANCES LEATE , Posted on Monday, October 21, 2013

    AN Indonesian woman who tried to commit suicide shortly after arriving in Bahrain is making a slow recovery in hospital.

    Domestic worker Zoou Huria, 28, was admitted to Salmaniya Medical Complex (SMC) on Thursday after jumping from a second floor apartment in A’ali.

    She is believed to have suffered injuries to her neck, legs and face.

    Indonesian Embassy consular section head Mohammed Rifqi told the GDN she had regained consciousness, but was still in a serious condition.

    “Doctors have said that she will become stable after a few weeks of medication,” he said.

    “Her sponsor, who was out of Bahrain when the incident occurred, said he did not know what forced her to take this drastic step. No more information can be gathered until she starts speaking.”

    After recovering in hospital it is thought Ms Huria will be cared for at a shelter operated by the Indonesian Embassy.

    The GDN has reported 25 suicides and attempted suicides in Bahrain since the beginning of the year, most of them low-paid workers from either India or Pakistan.

    However, Migrant Workers’ Protection Society (MWPS) chairwoman Marietta Dias said it was impossible to know the exact figure because many incidents were not made public.

    At least three other expat women had been admitted to hospital in the last two months after attempting suicide.

    Ms Dias said she visited one Indian woman who attempted suicide and found two others in the same hospital ward, both from Indonesia.

    “It is a very sad situation and it is something that needs to be looked at in the country of departure, as much as it needs to be dealt with here,” she said.

    “Many of these workers are unprepared and don’t know what to expect when they come to Bahrain.

    “By the time they try to take their own life, it is too late for us to offer them the help they need.
