Kathmandu, May 17
After its success in dissolving transport entrepreneurs’ syndicates, it seems, the government is now preparing to launch another crackdown on similar practices in foreign employment recruitment sector.
Minister for Labour, Employment and Social Security Gokarna Bista claims that he has already told the Ministry of Home Affairs to launch an investigation and take action against organisations which have been carrying out various activities to pocket undue commissions from workers in the sector.
A source claims that the Home Ministry is currently preparing to respond to Bista’s request in action. The government may file organised crime and fraud cases against people and organisations fleecing foreign employment aspirants, according to the source.
Minister Bista organised a press conference in Kathmandu to claim that the government would not let businesses collect additional charges from foreign employment aspirants other than those fixed by the government and those mentioned in employment contracts.
“The system in which thousands of Nepalis get cheated in the interest of a handful of people will not last long,” Bista said, “The government will scrap all illegal activities.”
