A number of illegal expatriate workers are to be deported in compliance with the law, said the Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA).The violators were arrested during a clampdown conducted in the Capital Governorate by LMRA Labour Inspection Directorate in cooperation with the Nationality, Passports and Residence Affairs (NPRA).
The joint inspection clampdown aimed to ensure expatriate workers comply with the LMRA regulations and law on residence in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
In a statement today, the authority announced that it would step up inspections in cooperation with competent authorities, within the joint efforts with the Ministry of Interior.
LMRA inspectors will continue checking commercial registers countrywide to crackdown on any illegal practices which are detrimental to the labour market.
Complaints related to the labour market or illegal expatriate workers can be reported via LMRA communication centre 17506055.
