13 Rights Groups Complain To UN Over Saudi Arabia’s Laying Off 1000s Of Yemeni Workers

Thirteen international and Yemeni human rights organizations, in a petition addressed to the United Nations Committee on Migrant Workers, expressed their concern over Saudi Arabia's termination of the work contracts of thousands of Yemeni workers in the south of the kingdom.

The organizations called for exerting pressure on the Saudi authorities to reverse the unjustified decision.

....... Several workers whose contracts have been terminated told the organizations that their employers advised them to look for work in other areas of the kingdom other than the south to avoid deportation, only this is very difficult to be arranged on such short notice, especially with the complexities of expatriate labor laws in Saudi Arabia.
