Bahrain: LMRA Inspections Continue With 1,329 Campaigns And Visits Last Week

The Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) announced the implementation of 1,329 inspection campaigns and visits, during February 4-10, which resulted in the detention of 68 violating and irregular workers, while 163 violators were deported.

The inspection campaigns and visits also resulted in the monitoring of a number of violations related to the provisions of a number of regulating laws, especially the Labour Market Regulatory Authority and the Residency Laws in Bahrain, noting that legal measures were taken regarding the observed violations.

The Authority explained that 1,312 inspection visits were carried out on various shops in all governorates, in addition to 17 joint inspection campaigns, that included seven campaigns in the Capital Governorate; two campaigns in the Muharraq Governorate; three campaigns in the Northern Governorate, and five campaigns in the Southern Governorate.

The government entities that participated in the campaigns are the Ministry of Interior, represented by the Nationality, Passports and Residence Affairs (NPRA), the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation and Forensic Evidence, the Sentence Enforcement Directorate, and the Governorate’s Police Directorates, as well as the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, and Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority.

The Authority affirmed the continuation of joint coordination with government agencies to intensify inspection campaigns in all governorates of the kingdom, and to address any violations or practices that negatively affect the stability and competitiveness of the labour market or harm the economic and social security of the kingdom.

The LMRA renewed its call on all members of society to support the efforts of government agencies in addressing illegal labour practices, by reporting violations via the electronic form on the authority’s website or by calling the Authority’s call centre on 17506055 or via the government’s Suggestions and Complaints System (Tawasul).
