We hear stories of Kenyans who have been tortured while working in countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Dubai and many more. Here are a couple of tips you might consider before searching for a job outside or saying yes to one.

Laura, jailed in Qatar

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Parliament worried about Dutch woman in Qatar

Today, 15:46

The Lower House is concerned about the situation of a Dutch woman who has been jailed in Qatar for months. According to the lawyer of her family the 22-year-old Laura was arrested after she had reported having been raped.

MPs of VVD, PvdA, CDA, SP, D66, Christian Union, GroenLinks and SGP political parties have together asked [Foreign Affairs] Minister Koenders questions on the issue. They want to know what the government has so far done for the woman and ask how the contact with the family of the arrested woman is. They put question marks to whether the Dutch embassy in Doha is sufficiently equipped to assist both the woman and her family.

Parliament also wants to know whether it is true that the embassy did not attend a session without telling why and that diplomats visited Laura only after three weeks. …

On Monday there will be an important session and an embassy person will attend then. The department will not say whether Minister Koenders himself works on this case.
