Pakistani workers stranded in Dammam without payment of salaries


Dozens of Pakistani are stranded in Saudi Arabia’s city Dammam as they have not received payment of their salaries.

These people are forced to live without a shelter under the open sky without food, medicines and other basic needs.

They said that nearly 500 people are stranded in Saudi Arabia as they are not given monthly salaries due to financial problems of their employer, M/s. Saad Contracting and Construction Company.

The victims have urged the government to take step for their return to Pakistan.

Earlier, Ministry of Foreign Affairs informed that the Embassy of Pakistan in Riyadh is making efforts to address suffering of Pakistani workers in Dammam.

The Embassy had also brought the matter to the attention of the Saudi Foreign Office.
