Saudi Arabia: Alleged recruitment company mismanagement leaves 61 Indian workers without pay or visas

"61 Indian workers stranded in Saudi Arabia, Gujurat Sarpanch seeks MEA's intervention", 20 Sep 2019

Sixty-one Indians... have reportedly been stranded in a compound of a private company in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia...

[The head of the men's home village, Ansar Dilawarbhai Rathod, said] “These men have not been paid for months neither have their work permit been renewed. They are stuck inside the campus of a Riyadh-based company"...

Rathod stated that the workers have been stranded due to mismanagement of the [recruitment] company A&P.

“After the intervention of the local labour court, the company has returned the workers’ passport but it is useless as their work permit has expired and if they step out, they would be arrested as per law of the land,” Rathod said.

[We attempted to invite A&P to respond to this allegation but were unable to find contact information.]
