Kerala minister to visit Saudi Arabia, Kuwait to help Indians
Sunday June 2, 2013 8:26 PM, IANS

Kerala Minister for Diaspora K.C. Joseph will visit Saudi Arabia and Kuwait this week to monitor arrangements for the smooth transfer of Keralites who have to leave these countries due to their new labour laws.

An official at the minister's office told IANS that Joseph will be in Saudi Arabia June 7-8 and in Kuwait June 9. He will discuss with Indian embassy officials steps to be taken to send back Keralites who will be forced to return after the Saudi and Kuwaiti authorities decided to enact new labour laws.

"The official amnesty period ends this month in Saudi Arabia," the official said.

Last week, a dozen Keralites in Kuwait who did not have proper labour documents, were deported to India without the Indian embassy's knowledge.
