Riyadh (Web Desk): The Saudi Arabian government has deported another 130 Pakistani workers after expiry of their visas or working without a valid work permit.
The deportees alleged that top Saudi firms including Saudi Binladin Group, Redico Real Estate Development and Investment did not pay them their dues for over a year.
“The companies had not renewed our two-year work permits,” they said.
The impoverished employees were residing in Jubail RC camps owing to the fact that they had no money. Under the kingdom’s labour laws, without valid work permits, it was impossible for them to ink employment contract with other company.
