KATHMANDU, Sep 1: Today marks the 14th anniversary of run riot against manpower agencies to protest the brutal murder of 12 Nepali citizens in Iraq. Many manpower companies were vandalized and set on fire by the infuriated public who blamed them for having recruited the victims. As a result, manpower companies of Nepal faced a high amount of loss. As of now, the government has not taken action against the manpower company responsible. Many Nepali are cheated and abused during foreign employment. Over 1,000 Nepali exit Tribhuvan International Airport every day to work in foreign lands. Majority of those who have returned have experiences and tales to work in an unsafe environment at low pay, and subjected to abuse, threats, rape and other forms of violence. Their stories are almost always grim. But the government is doing nothing to book the companies trafficking unemployed youths aboard.
