Qatari authorities have come forward to help a group of labourers who complained that their residency permits and health cards were not issued even after 15 months of their arrival in the country to take up employment with a cleaning company.
It was Gulf Times that revealed on Saturday the plight of the workers.
In response to the report, an official from a ministry said that they were prepared to provide all necessary assistance to help the aggrieved workers.
It is learnt that the complainants, staying in Muaither are mainly from a South Asian country. After the local officials contacted some of the affected workers, they also managed to get the mobile numbers of the sponsor's representative. An official told they would follow up the issue and ensure that the aggrieved workers get justice.
The workers had told Gulf Times that they could not step out of their camps even on the weekends as they did not have RP cards.
