Lankan maids lured into prostitution

Young female domestic helpers working in Saudi Arabia are being encouraged by a gang of Sri Lankans operating in the kingdom to dump their contracted employers and go elsewhere in search of work. This work often includes prostitution.

According to Faizer Mackeen, secretary of the Association for Licensed Foreign Employment Agencies (ALFEA), the Sri Lanka mafia’s influence was spreading fast across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and could cause much damage to the job market in that country.

Mr. Mackeen said a domestic paid a minimum 650 riyal could earn three times as much in an illegal capacity, and even more if involved in the underground sex industry.
