16 illegal maids dumped in Saudi desert

Labour smugglers dumped 16 illegal Indonesian housemaids in a desert area in Saudi Arabia and left them without any transport means before they were found by a driver who happened to be passing in the place.

Abdul Rahman Al Harbi said he was driving on a motorway near the central town of Al Qasseem when he saw the 16 women sitting on the sand away from the road.

“I stopped the car and went to them to ask what they were doing there.
“They told me a labour smugger agreed to transport them from Riyadh to Makkah but he dumped them in that area  and fled although they do not have any money or food,” he said.

Harbi told  that he phoned the police, which sent a patrol to the area and took the maids, who were staying illegally in the Gulf Kingdom,.

1. Staying illegal is "WRONG".

2. Using someone's crime for personal benefit or to commit another crime is "Double Wrong".

MM, You have raised the serious question for the maids. They should confirm first before moving out with any one.
