KATHMANDU — Eleven Nepali migrant workers who were stranded in course of foreign employment have been rescued and brought to Nepal with the coordination of the Nepali Embassy in Oman.
The Embassy stated in a press release that these Nepali migrant workers were sent back after completing the legal process of Oman. These workers were not given facilities as mentioned in their contract, the Embassy stated.
The Embassy said 20 Nepali workers who had reached Oman as scaffolding workers at the Sohar-based Muwaradbadi Hiwi Modern Trade (ASTD) Company were in trouble due to this. Out of the 20 workers, 11 had approached the Embassy seeking help.
A team from the embassy had found the workers at a place called Barka, some 165 kilometres from the company where the workers were said to be employed, during an on-site monitoring some days back.
The embassy itself sent the workers back home after repeated contacts and discussions with the sides concerned failed to find a solution.
The embassy has also written to the office concerned in Oman, recommending legal action against the company. Embassy also said that it is making efforts for repatriating the remaining workers as well after addressing their problem.Follow @gorkhapost
