The Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs unveiled a plan to reorganize foreign workers.
"A ministerial committee has been formed at the request of Parliament, and is responsible for preparing a database for foreigners working in Iraq," the ministry’s spokesman, Najm al-Oqabi, told the Iraqi News Agency (INA).
He added that "the committee consists of a representative of the ministries and bodies concerned with this file, so that there will be a clear picture of their number and whereabouts."
With regard to the fake offices, he stressed that "there is a joint committee of intelligence and the ministries of labor and the interior, to close and hold accountable the fictitious employment offices for the recruitment of foreign workers, and contribute to the blackmail of citizens."
