17 Pakistani workers stranded in Egypt as govt confiscates passports

Seventeen Pakistani workers are reportedly stuck at a seaport of Egypt as the Egyptian government has confiscated their passports.

The chief officer at the ship told DawnNews that the shipping corporation has not paid the workers their dues, which amount to around Rs20 million.

He further said the shipping corporation also did not pay the Egyptian government to process their travel documents, which is why it has confiscated their passports.

The workers have been stuck at the seaport for more than four months now. They are also running out of food and other daily need supplies.

Five of the Pakistani workers are critically unwell.
