Ras Al Khaimah – A group of Asian workers late on Saturday went on a protest at an under construction building in the Khalifa bin Zayed city in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.

Major General Ali Abdullah bin Alwan Al Nuaimi, Commander-in-Chief of the RAK Police, on Sunday said the law enforcement bodies concerned, alerted of the sit-in, rushed to the site.

“The RAK Police have managed to peacefully and successfully end the labour protest after talking to the angry workers and investigations are on to identify the reasons behind.”

The workers of a firm here demonstrated peacefully at the work site whereas the sporadic incident was brought under control by the police, he stated. “It was peaceful and none was injured nor damage caused.”

All members of the society are urged to stop mongering rumours on social websites, he added. “Such baseless claims destabilise the society and give a wrong impression about the emirate.”
