The Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau has warned that it will be compelled to suspend sending maids to Jordan if recruitment agencies which hire these maids to the Middle Eastern country fail to deal with their problems.

According to the Bureau these agencies have been given a two week deadline to address the concerns of maids sent to Jordan including providing compensation for those facing abuse.  (JN)

    Monday, 22 February 2010 03:43 AM

    YES AS A SRI Lankan we should not send our sisters to middle eastern countryes work as maids for brainless arabs...

    Monday, 22 February 2010 11:36 AM

    Yes, Let our maids work in the tourism sector that will rise after the war. Let them live with dignity. not like sex slaves in arabic countries

    It is better to ban sending maids to ANY COUNTRY.

    Sunday, 21 February 2010 01:42 PM

    Jordanian can come to Srilanka to meet maids.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 12:39 PM

    BAN, WHICH AGENCIES, XLNTGSON?????????????

    Monday, 22 February 2010 05:56 AM

    This has to be dealt with priority. Government should black list countries where there is modern day slavery and should restrict sending maids to those countries.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 01:21 PM

    Ban the stupid brainless SL politicitians who caused SL women to have to be exported as Maids in order to earn foreign currency remittances so that the politicains can have luxuries in SL.

    Sunday, 21 February 2010 02:46 PM

    Let's send housemaids instead to our best friends in Libya and Iran. They may not torture these maids as much.

    Sunday, 21 February 2010 03:00 PM

    Stop selling our women completely !.

    Sunday, 21 February 2010 03:09 PM

    Ban this slavery completely !.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 02:49 PM

    Don't send them to Jordan. MR needs them!

    Sunday, 21 February 2010 04:38 PM

    Then how can our dear poiliticians and professionals who have been doing a yomen service taking SL to a knowledge based advanced economy get the foriegn exchange for their duty free imports?

    Monday, 22 February 2010 03:01 PM

    Pl.baned totally sending innocent SL girls,mothers,sisters as slaves to all Arab countries with immediate effect.

    Sunday, 21 February 2010 05:22 PM

    Should have stoped all together......sending Sri Lankan women as Maids....!

    Sunday, 21 February 2010 05:36 PM

    Anyone who expects these undemocratic Arab states to treat our people properly whether muslims or not properly are idiots. If you go there, you go there to be third class people barely above slavery.

    Sunday, 21 February 2010 06:37 PM

    Please do not export Lanka women...

    Monday, 22 February 2010 08:57 AM

    Not 'may ban' , they should ban right away!

    Sunday, 21 February 2010 07:33 PM

    Very good move by Jordon.

    Sunday, 21 February 2010 07:58 PM

    Why are you trying to penalise agents, try to stop diplomatic relationship with the govt of Jordan if not our problems are solved.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 09:51 AM

    Ban the agencies!

    Sunday, 21 February 2010 11:05 PM

    Before imposing a ban to Jordan, a ban for house maids should be imposed on Suadi Arabia.

    Sunday, 21 February 2010 11:26 PM

    A wise move in the right direction.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 10:17 AM

    Why only Jordan? Should apply in general. This is the only country, I believe, that relies mainly on its poor women folk to bring in in funds.

    Monday, 22 February 2010 03:12 AM

    Its a wrong to look at banning since the government is more concerned about money flow at any cost of morality.More joblessness would be created if these rackets are busted
