Officials to launch human trafficking investigation after 13 Balinese men filmed stranded in Dubai
After a video of 13 Balinese males stranded in Dubai went viral yesterday, an official has confirmed that the island’s administration goes to launch a human trafficking investigation.
A clip shared by Arya Wedakarna, a member of the Indonesian Regional Consultant Council (DPD), confirmed the Balinese males being positioned in a room and sharing meals from one massive bowl that they circled round.
Native information retailers reported that the lads went to Dubai for internships at an unnamed firm.
In line with Arya in his Instagram submit, the lads have been migrant staff who grew to become caught within the United Arab Emirates after they have been all duped and their passports have been confiscated.
Bali Manpower and Vitality Mineral Sources Company Head Ida Bagus Ngurah Arda mentioned immediately that his division would delve into the case.
“We’ll contact our consultant there [and check] the way it occurred,” he mentioned.
The official went on and mentioned that he would even be in contact with the Ministry of International Affairs and the Company for the Safety of Indonesian Migrant Employees (BP2MI).
“In the event that they [went abroad as workers] formally, their knowledge will probably be in our database or BP2MI’s,” he added.
