Local authorities had been notified to take necessary action regarding the offices' violations.

Mohre vowed to strictly implement regulations and stressed that it would not be lenient in “applying legal procedures against any domestic worker recruitment agency proven to have committed violations".

The ministry called on residents to rely only on approved and licensed offices when hiring domestic workers.
