'Human Trafficking'

Human Trafficking For Commercial Exploitation, A Modern-day Slavery !

                          No Free Trade Pacts Without Reform !

The United States and the European Union should not sign free trade deals with the UAE until it ends its mistreatment of foreign workers.

One of the world’s largest construction booms is feeding off of workers in Dubai, but they’re treated as less than human. It’s no surprise that some workers have started rioting in protest. What’s surprising is that the government of the UAE is doing nothing to solve the problem.

The UAE was one of the 14 countries in the world that the US blacklisted (TIER 3) for
human trafficking..... 
The Fifth Annual Trafficking in Persons Report  (2005)

Millions of people around the world still suffer in silence in slave-like situations of forced labour and commercial sexual exploitation from which they cannot free themselves. Slavery today involves human trafficking, forced labour, debt bondage, child labour, and forced prostitution.

Trafficking in persons is
an important issue in the UAE. The U.S. State Dpt. 'Trafficking in Persons Report' stated that, the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) is a destination country for men, women and children trafficked primarily from South and East Asia and the former Soviet Union for the purposes of sexual and labor exploitation.

One of the reasons that the problem is so little recognized is because slavery today bears little resemblance to the familiar images of whips, chains, and slave auctions that characterized slavery in the past.

Although most slaves are no longer sold at public auctions, their lives are no easier than the lives of their predecessors. (
It's noted that, before British intervention, the area was notorious for its pirates and slave trade and was called the Pirate Coast.  More at UAE HistoryIndeed, for many 'slaves', conditions today are more miserable and dangerous than in the past.

India is a large exporter of migrant workers to the UAE, where labour practices are in question. The United Arab Emirates, ranked as having one of the worst records of human rights violations in Middle East.
In Dec. 2004, 'Khaleej Times'
exposed the plight of over 1,400 unpaid workers who are living in dire straits in Abu Dhabi had threatened to commit a mass suicide!

In a recent report a 24 year-old Indian worker committed suicide in his living quarters, as he failed to get salary for the past few months. (
Circumstances cut short young man's big dreams)

"A day before his death, he borrowed 50 fils from me to buy a postage stamp to post the letter to his family. His situation was such that he didn't even have enough money to bid his family good-bye. Giving an insight into his desperate situation, a co-worker said.

According to investigation sources, he was suffering from severe depression that ultimately led to his death. "Nearly 75-80% of suicide cases over here are due to the same reason. Loneliness coupled with a strong sense of helplessness drive many people to take this extreme step," said the source.

A nongovernmental organization, Anti-Slavery International, released a report recently condemned the trafficking of humans, many of whom are women and children. The NGO report also outlined trafficking of boys to the United Arab Emirates. (See pictures taken by Anti-Slavery International photographer in Dubai, Click Here.)

Foreign women are lured to the U.A.E., under false pretenses and subsequently forced into sexual servitude,
often unprotected, with large numbers of partners, and to work unsustainably long hours. Many victims suffer mental break-downs and are exposed to sexually-transmitted diseases, including HIV and AIDS. They are often denied medical care and those who become sick are sometimes even killed.

The UAE labour market has presently around 300,000 illegal workers who have absconded their sponsors, Minister of Labour and Social Affairs Dr Ali bin Abdullah Al Kaabi disclosed in last week of Dec. 04.

He also admitted in an interview with the Abu Dhabi Radio, the existence of cases of administrative corruption in his ministry. "One example of corruption is that of an employee of the ministry who has 70 trade licences,” Dr Al Kaabi said.

It's futile to complain because the traffickers here operate with almost total impunity. According to the Indian embassy, winning a legal case has proved to be futile for many Indian expatriates as the court verdict in their favour remains unimplemented for years.
