Workers cry in Qatar for exit to Nepal

Posted by Anup Baral Nov 30, 2016 :
Twenty one Nepali migrant workers in Qatar are left in the lurch after their employer denied them regular payment. The workers said that the employer has not issued visa on their passports, rendering them illegal. They have approached the Nepali Embassy and the Department of Labour in Qatar to seek help. They have also filed a case against their employer in the Qatar i Labour Court. Following pressure from several quarters, their employer agreed to send them back to Nepal, but never kept his word. On Tuesday, the workers boarded a bus for the airport in Doha, intending to return to Nepal. However, they could not reach the airport after their employer denied them exit papers in a breach of his earlier promise. The workers, who eat and sleep on the bus, said that they would not get off the vehicle until their employer agreed to issue them exit papers.
