KSA deports 224 more Bangladeshi workers

UNB, Dhaka

Another 224 Bangladeshi workers were deported by Saudi Arabia on Saturday, although many of them claimed to have legal documents.  A Saudi Airlines flight carrying 116 workers landed at Dhaka airport at 12:20pm on Saturday. Twelve hours later, another Saudi Airlines flight carrying 108 Bangladeshi workers arrived in Dhaka. Saudi Arabia has been the major source of remittance for Bangladesh.  The South Asian country received more than $18 billion in remittance last year. Bangladeshis in Saudi Arabia sent $3.65 billion or 19.87 percent of the total amount during this period, according to the Bureau of Manpower, Employment and Training (BMET).  Last year, 399,000 or 56.99 percent of all overseas Bangladeshi employment were in Saudi Arabia, BMET data showed. During this time, 700,159 Bangladeshis found jobs abroad.  But the Middle East country sent back 25,789 Bangladeshis in 2019. Since the beginning of this year, another 834 Bangladeshi workers were deported from the country, according to official data.  Montu Mia of Narsingdi said he had gone to Saudi Arabia for a cleaner's job about five months ago spending Tk 400,000. "Police arrested me when I was returning home. They deported me even after I showed them Aqama," he said.  Shamim, 30, from Barishal, and many others had similar stories.

“I went to Saudi Arabia on a driving visa three months ago spending Tk 300,000. I worked for about two months without pay,” Shamim said.

 He said his employee arranged another job for him. “Police arrested me from there and my employer did not provide me any assistance,” he said.
