One hundred and thirty (130) Sri Lankan domestic workers who had taken refuge at their embassy in Jordan have been hospitalised with food poisoning, a security official said.

Colonel Farid al-Sharaa, in a statement, said their condition was "stable" after having fallen ill from food ordered from a restaurant. The women were taken to three hospitals in Amman after receiving first aid, he said.

The women had taken refugee at the Sri Lankan embassy after rows with their employers and were awaiting repatriation or a settlement to return to work.(Business Recorder)

    There is even a worst part to it mate. In spite of the immense contribution to the economy our children born overseas have no access whats or ever if they want to attend any of the local universities. What is that they did wrong that they do not deserve free higher education?

    Was it a plot to harm them by those puppets working at the embassy? Shame that these domestic slaves are the biggest foreing revenue earners and their money been spent lavishly by our politicians. Those innocent victims are not even fed properly

    Poison, raped, assaulted, jailed, killed, humiliated, impregnated ........What next for these poor souls on whose forex earnings our corrupt politicians, big wigs & their degenerate progeny are riding on luxury vehicles, enjoying the good life & partying, while these poor souls are damned & in a living hell. Who will speak for them or go to their aid?
