Ministry of Interior is working on solving the problem of absconding domestic workers after their numbers have increased to a panicking figure exceeding 53,000.

Indicating that arrest warrants have been issued against the absconders, the sources revealed that the General Department for Citizenship, Passports, and Travel Documents headed by Assistant Undersecretary Major General Sheikh Mazen Al-Jarrah will soon form a security team to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

They said the shortage of staff in the department is an obstacle to reducing the number of violators of the residency law. The sources affirmed that the ministry will intensify its crackdown on known shady locations to fight the phenomenon of increasing number of absconding domestic workers particularly housemaids, adding that new laws will be passed soon to fight this phenomenon.
