Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said stern actions will be taken against fraud recruiting agencies so that migrant workers do not fall victims to deception.

“I would like to ask our recruiting agencies not to send workers unnecessarily just for making money,” she said addressing a program of the International Migrants Day 2019 at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in Dhaka on Thursday.

Sheikh Hasina said the rural people fall victims to deception in many cases as some agents of recruiting agencies show them the dream of catching golden deer in foreign lands, reports UNB. 

“Proper actions will be taken against those who do this. Alongside, taking actions against the recruiting agencies that cheat the people in the country, we will also request the foreign country concerned to take proper actions against those who deceive the workers taking them abroad so that such thing doesn’t occur,” she said.

The prime minister asked the overseas jobseekers to verify job, salary and security measures properly before going to any country as there is registration system here in Bangladesh now.

She also urged everyone in rural areas to be careful so that no-one can fall victim to such fraud.

At the function, she inaugurated the insurance coverage system for migrant workers and handed over the insurance policy to an overseas jobseeker.

She also handed over cheques of stipends to two meritorious students as part of the distribution of some Tk4.5 crore as stipends to 3,225 meritorious children of migrant workers.

Besides, Sheikh Hasina provided Commercially Important Person (CIP) awards to two non-resident Bangladeshis (NRBs) as the government conferred the CIP awards upon 42 Bangladeshi expatriates on the occasion of the International Migrants Day 2019.

Later, the prime minister opened the migration fair at the venue.  

Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Imran Ahmad presided over the programme.

Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on the Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Ministry Anisul Islam Mahmud, MP, President of Bangladesh Association of International Recruiting Agencies (Baira) Benjir Ahmed, MP, Expatriates Welfare and Overseas Employment Secretary Md Salim Reza and IOM Bangladesh Chief of Mission Giorgi Gigauri akso spoke on the occasion.
