CEO of the Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) and Chairman of the National Anti-Human Trafficking Committee Ausamah bin Abdullah Al-Absi received here yesterday the Indian Ambassador to Bahrain Alok Kumar Sinha, and discussed with him the conditions of the Indian workforce in the kingdom and ways to enhance cooperation in the fields of informatics and exchange of information.

Al-Absi informed the Indian Ambassador about the “Amnesty Period”, extending to December, 2015 to allow illegal foreign workers to rectify their situation in the kingdom.

They discussed the executive mechanisms of the amnesty period, highlighting the role that diplomatic missions can play in raising the awareness of violating workers on the need to rectify their situations.

They also discussed the logistical support that embassies can provide for non-holders of passport to travel.

The meeting also touched upon LMRA’s plans to develop its foreign workers’ protection programme, as well as its plans to put forward a legal mechanism to consolidate the kingdom’s anti-human trafficking efforts.

The Indian envoy praised LMRA’s support to Indian workers, stressing that the official care they enjoy is commendable.

He also lauded LMRA’s new laws and systems, and support for the “amnesty period”, stressing keenness to motivate Indian workers to rectify their situation in the kingdom.
