‘Major’ human trafficking gang busted; Visa selling worth  more than 50 million dinars

Ministry of Interior busted a major network including three member Bangladeshi gang in connection with human trafficking and money laundering believed to be worth more than 50 million dinars.

According to Al Qabas daily report, the three had high-ranking and sensitive jobs in three major companies and brought in more than 20,000 Bangladeshi laborers on government contracts in exchange of huge amounts of money exceeding KD 50 million (Approximately 1100 crore Indian Rupee).

It is learned that each Bangladeshi worker paid between 1,800 and 2,200 dinars for the average worker, while the driver’s visa is ‘sold’ for between 2,500 and 3,000 dinars. The gang managed to bring more than 20,000 Bangladeshi laborers to Kuwait.

The Ministry of Interior arrested one among the three while according to sources the two others have left the country after sensing trouble.

The daily has also reported that one of the three men reportedly recently became a member in the Bangladeshi Parliament and is on the board of directors of a large bank in his country and that he shuttled between Kuwait and Bangladesh. His stay in Kuwait was no more than 48 hours.

The sources revealed as soon as this MP learned he would be investigated by the personnel from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) he left the country about a week ago, while the file of the company he was running has been suspended.

Result of re-opening visas of countries which were originally banned. don''t understand why they had to open it in the first place. what meaningful value would be gotten from such a labor force. now cry over spilled milk..huhuhu... and just imagine..each individual paid 2000 KD for average work ! what will be his salary when he comes here and how long it will take to recover just that amount...2000 KD is big amount...idiots could have invested well in their own country...
