The Foreign Employment Bureau has taken all necessary measures to bring down 17 of the Sri Lankan migrant workers at a Jordanian relief camp by the end of this week.
Sri Lankan workers who travel to Jordan and encounter various hardships and legal issues are housed in this relief camp run by the Sri Lankan Embassy in Jordan.
Embassy officials recently took measures to provide jobs to 28 Sri Lankans who were housed at the camp at a garment factory in Jordan.
However, this practice of employing relief campers in other institutions is against Jordanian Labour Law.
Accordingly, Jordanian officials returned the 28 workers to the relief camp.
17 of these 28 workers who do not face legal issues will be repatriated to Sri Lanka by the end of this week.
