Nepal Government is committed for safer Migration: Labour Minister

Newly appointed Minister for Labour and Transport Management of Nepal Malbar Singh (MS) Thapa said that he is committed to ensure protection of Nepalese Migrants going abroad for work. "I am exploring the issues now and will take concrete action soon", the Minister said at a meeting with Amnesty International (AI) on 29th March 2012.

In the meeting, Robert Godden, Asia Pacific Campaign Coordinator of Amnesty International asked the government to implement AI's recommendations for the protection of Nepalese Migrants. He also handed over the AI's latest report ‘False Promises: Exploitation and Forced Labour of Nepalese Migrant Workers’ to the minister.

On the occasion, Rameshwar Nepal, Director of Amnesty International Nepal informed to the Minister about AI Nepal's nationwide campaign to raise awareness on rights of the Nepalese migrant workers. The awareness program what Amnesty International named "migrant workers caravan" launched on 21 March 2012 which, in the first phase, travelled in Jhapa, Sunsari, Mahottari and Makanpur districts. The caravan will travel to more districts soon.
