Workers cross their fingers

Daily Tribune: Seven Indian workers, who approached the Indian Embassy during the Open House on Friday, are optimistic about receiving what was due to them thanks to the embassy’s intervention.

The workers, who are working in a marble company, had sought the mission’s help about non-payment of salaries for seven months. “Ten of us, including three Nepalis, have not been paid salaries for seven months,” said Singh, one of the workers. “However, after embassy officials spoke to our sponsor, we are hopeful that we will get the salary. Our sponsor has informed us that he will give us our money by the end of this week.”

They added they had arrived in Bahrain in February 2009 and their visa had expired. “The sponsor said he would give us our passports and allow us to leave as soon as those who are on leave return,” Mr Singh told DT. “Each of us paid Rs70,000 (BD595) to get the visa and now the agent is asking for another Rs20000 (BD170). He had earlier lied to us and promised us a salary of BD120 whereas the sponsor had agreed only to BD70 per month. We now hope to get the money and our passport and return home to our families.”
