KATHMANDU, April 6: The Domestic Workers Concern Society has said the directive of the Parliamentary International Relations and Labour Committee to prevent domestic workers from going abroad for employment would increase incidences of women trafficking in Nepal.
The Society at a press meet on Wednesday, claimed that the directive was issued to stop sending domestic workers abroad without going through the Directive on Domestic Worker-2073.
Society Chairperson Kiran Pradhan commented that though the workers going abroad as per the Directive would remain safer, the closure of the route would increase the number of women trafficked to other countries via India and Sri Lanka. RSS
