Thereport24.com Desk:

The Interior Ministry of Kuwait reintroduced a ban on recruitment of workers from Bangladesh after months from reopening it under certain controls, including that the employer must own a house, reports the oil-rich country’s English Kuwait Times on Tuesday.

The country’s Undersecretary Assistant for Citizenship and Passports Affairs Sheikh Mazen Al-Jarrah made the decision Monday after viewing statistics which showed that the number of the Bangladeshi community in Kuwait reached 200,000 as of the end of last week, Kuwait Times said quoting the country’s leading daily Al-Anbaa, which the later learned from a security source.

It is not known whether Sheikh Mazen would reconsider his decision in the future or would announce more controls to regulate the recruitment of workers from Bangladesh, the sources added.
