Expats should be banned from hiring maids

MP Safa Al-Hashem went into overdrive yesterday in her tirades and abnormal proposals that blame expats for almost every problem Kuwait faces. The lawmaker, who has been tirelessly trying to build her political popularity by criticizing expatriates, said she will propose to ban expats from recruiting and hiring housemaids, blaming them for mistreating their maids and distorting Kuwait’s image.

She said disasters come only from expatriates mistreating their domestic helpers, in reference to a standoff between Kuwait and the Philippines, which has issued a total ban against Filipino workers coming to Kuwait. Hashem cited the example of an expatriate couple who allegedly killed their Filipina maid and stuffed her body in a freezer, where it was found after more than a year, further straining Kuwait-Philippines relations.
