The Daily Star - Lebanon News - Ethiopia bans citizens from seeking work in Lebanon

The Daily Star - Lebanon News - Ethiopia bans citizens from seeking work in Lebanon: "ADDIS ABABA: On the occasion of Labor Day, Ethiopia has officially banned its citizens from traveling to Beirut in search of jobs, the African country's Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs has disclosed. Ethiopia passed the bill after it probed the human right violations and domestic violence Ethiopian migrants face behind closed doors in Beirut while employed as maids.

'Suspending work travel to Beirut was the only solution to minimizing the human rights abuses and dangers facing our citizens,' said Zenebu Tadesse, deputy minister of state for labor and social affairs.

During the past few years, a number of Ethiopians have died in Lebanon in questionable circumstances.

According to a report published by Ethiopia's official news agency, past human right records show that 67 Ethiopian women have died between 1997 and 1999 alone while working in Beirut."
