Emiratos Árabes Unidos - Slow justice (2012)

In March the daily paper “The National” reported that 400 workers from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh living in workers’ accommodation in Al Faya in the desert to the east of Abu Dhabi, worked for up to ten months without being paid. Some just gave up and went home without receiving their money, complaining that it took months for the courts to deal with their case. Others were too frightened to complain, because their work visa had expired and they risked fines of up to 10,000 Dirhams (2,700 US dollars).
