The panel is also taking a look at the possibility of providing insurance cover to maids and ensuring that their rights are fully protected, (Labor Ministry Undersecretary) Hussein Yousuf Al Mulla said.
He told local Arabic daily Al Arab in an interview published yesterday that some manpower agencies in Qatar were themselves involved in the ‘runaway racket’ and inciting maids to escape their sponsors.
Qatar also plans to continue cast a wider net for maids in countries including China, Vietnam and Kenya, as well as poor European nations.
