ASSALAM O ALAIKUM READ COMPLETE MESSAGE RECEIVED BY PRESS SECRETARY TO THE PRESIDENT I WOULD LIKE TO ADD FURTHER IMPORTANT POINTS WHICH ARE COMPLETELY IGNORED BY THE EMBASSY AND OUR GOVERNMENT.
OUR WELFARE OFFICE DO NOT VISIT JAIL,COURT ATHORITIES,OR COMPANIES TO SOLVE THE MATTER OF PAKISTANI WITH THEIR LOCAL SPONSERS OR TO CONVIENCE COMPANY OWNER TO HIRE PAKISTANI WORKERS OR TO APPROACH MINISTRY OF LABOUR OR INTERIOR MINISTRY TO ISSUE PAKISTANI VISA MXM AS WE CLAIM THAT PAKISTAN HAS EXCELLENT RELATIONS WTH SAUDI GOVERNMENT WE ARE NOT CAPACABLE TO CASH SUCH RELATIONS,LABOUR COUNSELLOR NEVER MOVE FROM THEIR OFFICE HE ONLY DEPEND ON TRANSLATOR AND THIER
TRANSLATOR ARE ABSOLUTELY ZERO OR MAXMUM HE WLL SEND THIS CASE TO FOREIGN OFFICE LATER NO ONE WLL CHASE THIS CASE THIS IS ABSOLUTELY USELESS APPROACH AND WLL PRODUCE NO RESULT,IF THIS IS A KIND OF PROCEEDURE THEN OFFICER SHOULD APPROACH FOREIGN OFFICE TO CHASE THIS MATTER PROPERLY TO SOLVE LEGALY WORKER PROBLEM SOON.
THERE MUST BE LEGAL ADVICER IN ALL PAKISTAN EMBASSIES AND HE SHOULD STUDY THE WORKERS CASE LEGALLY AND THAT LEGAL ADVICER MUST GO TO JAIL,COURT,AND COMPANIES ON BEHALF OF EMBASSY,TO SOLVE PAKISTANI WORKERS PROBLEMS AND TO SAVE TIME TENSION,AND FURTHER UNFORSEEN INCIDENT.
LOT OF PAKISTANI WORKERS HAS PROBLEM WTH THEIR SPONSERSL THEY DO NOT PAY THEIR SALARIES OVERTIME AND OTHER RIGHTS AND VIOLATE LABOUR COURT RULES BRAVELY,DUE TO OUR EMBASSIES WEEKNESS POLICE AND OTHER CONERNED PERSON IN LABOUR COURT HELP THEIR I NATIONAL AND DEAL WTH
WORKERS LIKE A SLAVE,IN THEIR EYES PAKISTANI EMBASSIES OR PAKISTANI GOVT HAS NO VALUE, WORKER CHASE THEIR CASES WITHOUT THE HELP OF LEGAL ADVICER OR EMBASSY SUPPORT AND LAKE OF ARABIC KNOWLEDGE ,FINALLY AFTER 6 MONTHS ONE YEAR , TWO YEARS HE WLL GET NOTHING. OUR EMBASSIES NEVER THINK THAT UNDER SUCH CIRCUMSTANCE DURING THIS PERIOD FROM WHERE HE WLL EAT AND WHERE HE WLL LIVE,AND MIGHT BE DUE TO THIS TENSION HE WLL BE BOUND TO USE UNFAIR MEANS.
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT OUR WELFARE OFFICER AND EMBASSADORS SHOULD TRY TO DEVELOP RELATIONS WTH LABOUR MINISTER ,JAIL .IMMIGRATIONS DEPARTMENT OFFICERS MISTRER OF FOREGIN AFFAIRS AND MINSTER OF INTERIOR DIRECTLY AND SHOULD BRING IN THEIR NOTICE LOCAL SPONSER TREATMENT WITH OUR WORKERS , THIS IS A RIGHT WAY IF ANY SPONSERL IS NOT LISTENING , VIOLATING THE RULES OR DELAYING MATTER IN LABOUR COURT, THESE
OFFICERS OR MINSTRIES CAN TAKE ACTION IMMEDIATELY, THEY SHOULD TRY TO INCREASE THE VALUE OF THEIR WORKERS AND COUNTRY UNFORTUNATELY NOTHING IS BEING DONE AND NOBODY APPROACH THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES IN A PROPER WAY.
SOMETIME LOCAL SPONSER INSTEAD OF PAYING WORKERS DUES HE TRY TO SEND THROUGH ILLEGAL WAY FROM THE COUNTRY TO SAVE WORKER MONEY AND OUR EMBASSIES HAS KNOWLEDGE, BUT THEY FEEL HELPLES LOT OF PAKISTANI WITHOUT ANY CRIME ARE IN JAIL IN THE KINGDOM AND I HOPE SAME SITUATION WLL BE IN OTHER ISLAMIC GULF STATES OUR GOVT AND LOCAL EMBASSIES SHOULD BRING SUCH UNLAWFUL MATTERS IN ARAB COUNTRIES LEADERS.
THERE ARE LOT OF COMPLAINTS AGAINST PAKISTANI EMBASSIES STAFFS ALMOST IN EVERY COUNTRY GOVERNMENT FOREIGN OFFICE NEVER GIVE ATTENTION TOWARDS FOREIGN WORKER ISSUES OR THEY ARE NOT CAPABLE TO
UNDERSTAND ,AND SOLVE FOREIGN WORKERS ISSUES THEY NEED ONLY FOREIGN EXCHANGE TO SUPPORT THE COUNTRY,BUT THEY DO NOT WANT GIVE THEM ANY RELIEF.
I HOPE OUR GOVT AND EMBASSY STAFFS WLL CONSIDER ABOVE MENTIONED POINTS DEEPLY............................TKS/KHILJI

Dear Mr. Akram,
Your email was forwarded to the concerned department. Their response is as follows:
The offices of the welfare counselors has been shifted to accommodate and facilitate the offices of Machine Readable Passports and NADRA, which would have more interaction with the public. This action is also taken in view of the security Instructions from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Pakistan, and the concern of the Saudi Government. Thereby, the security environments have been upgraded. So, this inconvenience is not only for the Welfare Wing but also for all the Wings of the Embassy.
However, to accommodate a
permanent reception/ desk has been placed which is being attended by the staff members of the Welfare Wing, during duty hours and welfare services are available in extreme cases round the clock. The Welfare Counselors frequently visit the reception area and attend the public complaints personally. The main reception of the Embassy has been asked to allow only the genuine complainants to enter into the Embassy premises. Secondly due to the nature of job the Welfare Counselors are also required to visit Jails/Companies and courts to attend the public complaints. Even during the absence, the reception is always available to attend the public complaints.
Office of the Press Secretary to the President

Pakistan Embassy in Riyadh, S. Arabia
Assalamo Alaikum. Pakistan Embassy in Riyadh has shifted Welfare Consulars from the public reach area to a restricted area (both areas inside the embassy building). Due to this act the people can not meet the Welfare Consulars easily as
was the routine before. By this change (I think it as an unnecessary change)the people have to wait for one hour or more to reach to the Welfare Consulars..after strictly questioned for what purpose you want to see the Welfare Consular and the questions on such nature... which act is totally unfair. Now a days the people can reach embassy building from the town area in about two (2) hours because of Saudi security check-ups on the way to the embassy. And they have to come back to their homes/offices after meeting the Welfare Consulars. If there is an extra hour or more for embassy staff for questions and answers then this time is also to be added. Who cares that the new routine makes how much trouble to the people. My request is that the Welfare Consulars should be returned back to their original offices (out of the restricted and sensitive area of the embassy). Moreover I shall request that the Welfare Consulars be present during their duty hours in their offices. I have
noticed that some Welfare Consulars come late to their offices and leave their offices before the official end/off time.
May I hope for a favourable action as well as a reply to my question? Many thanks in advance. Mohammad Akram - Mobile No. +966-50-2154984
