In conclusion


Mr. Jamal Ahmad Al Kandari
Chairman











This man - parliament member Mr. Jamal Al Kandari- swore under oath to protect our nation's constitution, the constitution that protects human rights and liberties. His job as a member of parliament is to make sure all laws of our countries are enforced by the government and obided by. The same man who pays his employees 20 kd/month which is a violation of labour laws in Kuwait. Wake up people.










Dr. Mohammad Sabah Al-Salim Al-Sabah
Foreign Minister of Kuwait


In the case of Shaikh Mohammed Al-Sabah, though he did play down The State Department's reports of Human Trafficking putting Kuwait in Tier 3 level (worse level), he did indeed recognize the problem, and that makes my work and other NGO work easier especially after years of of denial by government officials. Here's what he said:



"I believe that the report is missing a lot of facts mainly regarding the issue of dealing with foreign domestic labor."



"We agree that there are a lot of issues that require improvement and the government is serious in tackling some of the negative aspects in the situation of foreign domestic labor, and you will see this in laws that the government will adopt on that issue."

المصلحة يا أختي تتقدم على كل شيء و خصوصاً الشخصية و ننسي امور واضحة و بسيطة و منها على سبيل المثال
الحق و هو حق العامل بأخذ أجرته
الحرية و هي عكس العبودية
يعني لانستعبد الناس اللى نوظفهم في اصغر الأعمال و نعاملهم كعبيد طبعاً الشركات و القطاع الخاص يتفنن بذلك و انتي اكثر معرفة راتب 20 دينار و يندفع كل 6 اشهر...موضوع محزن و الحقيقة الثانية انهم خلوا اسم بلدهم يدخل ضمن قوائم بكل الألوان
لازم تكون قوائم سوداء للشركات اللى هي السبب الرئيسي وراء كل هذي المشاكل الأنسانية
الله يعين الضعفاء و يعينكم على الدفاع عن حقوق الضعفاء

The issue is not only the companies,but the laws,We need to Pray and Fight the good fight to cancel the problems from the roots not only chage the out looking.
When the Sponsership Laws Cancelled, the owners will not have that athourity over thier employee,then, they have to give them thier rights in order to keep them work..
Let us point the roots in order to make the name of Kuwait without Colors..

Thank You for suggesting I post Dr. Rubee's article. Dr. Rubee is enduring the toughest battle in his life right now and still has the human decency to fight this battle, the protection of those who have nobody to protect them. Let's all pray for this brave man to keep him strong and to get well soon ya rab.
