600 employees... have been languishing in labour camps in Dammam without food, medicine, or wages. These workers, many of them working in Saudi Arabia for 5 to 30 years, were left in dire straits...
[One employer] Al Dossary was a well-established company for roads and other civil works.
[Abdul Khader, chairman of the Assembly committee for Pravasi Welfare said] “They have been denied food and medicine. They are not getting wages for more than 10 months...
“Most of them face travel ban as their travel visa and other documents have already expired...
“Their labour camps have been without power or water supply for months."
[We attempted to invite Al Dossary to respond to this allegation but were unable to verify the company involved.]
