Myrtle Witbooi, IDWF President, speaks at the Standards Committee, ILC 2014 on June 3

Myrtle Witbooi made a passionate statement at the Standards Committee to denounce the abuse and exploitation endured by domestic workers in Saudi Arabia, and against the kafala system that prevents them from leaving their employers even if they are abused. Flagging the shortcomings of existing legislation to protect migrant domestic workers in Saudi Arabia, she made a call to stop the abuse, and to see that legislation complies with C189.
