|The gang involved in trafficking of housemaids in police custody. An Ethiopian woman was leading the group and supplying maids to citizens and expatriates|
According to a press statement issued by Ministry of Interior, the arrested gang members included a driver and 12 housemaids. When the department received information from a reliable source about the gang swindling a number of residents of Kuwait after creating an impression that it is affiliated to a domestic labor bureau, a team was formed for investigations.
After arresting the suspects, they discovered that the housemaids including the Ethiopian ringleader are either involved in immoral cases or are reported as absconding. They were referred to the concerned authorities for necessary legal measures.
