Prior to Arriving Jordan, Systematic Abuse of Women Workers in Dubai

Thank God finally justice will serve to these poor workers. Ever since i show this article on derana i repeatedly mention about Manager Anil santha´s behaviour as i used to knoe him while he was toturing girls in Dubai factories as well. But sometime derana did never publish my comments. It is so sad that derana you say truth first. It is almost impossible to track the way they toture them by a out sider. coz it is done very systematically.These poor wokers once they landed they have to work like slaves for excessive hours to fulfil the production target these managers set to satisfy their bosses and to save their highly paid jobs.

This is how it happens. 1) Factory receives such large orders from USA buyers at very tight pricing The volume of the orders are high but at very low price. 2) once the order is confirmed by the owner of the factory it goes to the merchandizer to estimate the delevery period by consulting with the factory production manager.This is where things go wrong. Sometime the merchandizer need the goods so fast as per the deadline given by the buyer. 3) To meet this short delevery time production manager sets individual manufacturing targets to the poor workers that they can acheive in normal 8 hours time. Therefore theyare bound to work up to 12 to 14 hours a day to fullfil their given target but no pay for extra working hours. When some of the girls are not able to meet these terrible targets the manager used to torture them abuse them, Reason is that if he manager is not able to give the delevery on the day that he commited to the mechandizer or the owner or the buyer, the order may get cancelled or get air lifted at factory cost.So there is no smooth life for poor worker at anytime with thses kind of un qualified production managers who commited to wrong lead times of dcleveries.

Finally Anil santha has lot of political connection in srilanka. I hope that justice will prevail.

Dear Derana, I am so greatfull to you for publishing my comments without editing it. This is what it call unbiased TRUTH FIRST. I am writing my comments on this matter since the day i know it and i feel so sad and painfull to hear the grievences of our fellow sisters.So when i write ,I write so fast before my thoughts get vanished and i need to convert them to words and print them.

Anil must be punished and my only fear is he is politically highly connected with some of his close friends who are now wealthy businessman in DUbai and srilanka are very well connected with our big brothers familly.So Anils only saviours are them. I hope they will not try to influence the political power to get Anil out of this terrible thing that he has done to poor girls.

I have competetly read the report of www.globallabourrights.org and every single worrd written their is 100 percent tru to the history of Anil ,Nayagam and Priyantha as i know all of them when they were in Dubai.

Also i know Anils boss Sanal from the time he used to work in Dubai MB garment as a financial controller. He too has high influence jordan due to the size of his factory and the power of his money. Anil and Sanal used to be close friend from the time they were in Dubai. Once Anil got kiked out from Dubai ,Sanal took him to Jordan. The reason that Sanal need Anil is that Anil is such a person that he sucks the juice out of workers and meet the deleveries by hook or croock and which makes millions to Sanal. Anil has no sympathy for any workers. his method is do the way i want and no question ask. Most of those workers,when they go back to their country after 3 years of hard work, they have no much energy left in them. Working continuesly 12 to 14 hours a day with one focus mind of sewing clothes is not a easy task at all. May god bless those innocent girls and show your justice to culprits.

 

 

Rape dates back to 1992 in UAE and Tanzania

Dear Zahran, I can write books about this guy since i know his way of management since 1992 in Dubai. He also work in Tanzania for a period of one year and the time he left Tanzania he had over 75 cases againts him in the court for abusing toturing workers.

Somehow his boss managed to send him out of the country and landed in Dubai Fuji garments. THere the same thing he did to most of the workers. Since his ruthless way of getting the production targets fullfied the bosses never qustion him for any complaint comes from the workers.

From Fuji garment he became a partner of a another factory named SAN apperal. SAN means Sanath, Anil Nandana. THose were the 3 partners ofthe factory.Sanath is our famous crcketer Jayasoriya and Nandana is a wealthy businessman now in Dubai and also used to be a production manager before in a garment factory in Dubai. Sanath took his shares of the company when he comes to know the toture that Anil used to do to the gils. Even those days girls made so manny complained to the consulate in Dubai but they never came to inquire due to the reson of Sanath been involved. Later Nandana also could not handle the situation and he too kicked Anil out of the factory and their he went back to srilanka and settled in Kandy. Started car sale and that didnt do well. Then he contacted His current boss sanal who was his good friend from Dubai and got the job in Jordan. THe amount of toture this man and his colegues has done to poor girls are countless and i am so eager to see what punishment this monster will get.

Hi time the Government intervened and bring Anil Shantha down. He should be lashed in public by Sri Lankan women itself for treating them like prostitutes. I bet you he is dead scared of his wife and leads a petti coat government life. That is why he is abusing other women. Ponnaya no doubt

While viewing this miserable video I was compelled to make this type of comment. This guy Anil Shantha must be coming from a low, low family background and also not an educated person the government been so powerful at this time, should come forward and openly make women to step on his head! Insult him, drag him along the road and give 100 lashes of from a barbed wire. The name too shows that he is a person where no seat to be offered rather allow him to sit on the floor!!

Oh my god........... Is this "Anil Shantha" a Sri Lankan ??? Dear Minister Dylan Perera...... Please take this man down to Sri Lanka and give him the maximum possible punishment. I think, president´s hand will not shiver, if he has to sign the ´Capital Punishment´ papers for this brute.

Stupid fools blaming the west and the Middle East. It's a Sri Lankan manager "Anil Santha's advances" that is the cause of it all. If the SL gov won't do anything, someone should castrate him when he lands in SL next time

At last we´ve found one good American firm. Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights !!! Hats off to you for coming forward to reveal this menace... and standing up to it till the culprit is brought in front of the justice. Hope now the other innocent girls will also speak.

Someone should do the same thing to one of his daughters. Then Anil can feel the pain. If anyone who reads this article had a family member or a friend who worked at Fuji garment, SAN apparel in Dubai or classic fashion in Jordan will tell you the never ending story about Anil and his gang.

These girls are the people who earn money that runs our country (and what the ministers happily dine on). We should at least have the decency to protect them. they have no other person to turn to.

It is a common occurrence in the many Sri Lankan owned garment factories in Jordan where many Lankan female workers are employed who undergo untold hardships to earn a living. Recently, a delegation team from Foreign Employment Bureau went on a fact finding mission. What Happened ? why not Adarena contact them ? It is the right time!

I cannot believe it happens in this type of environment. But I can believe it is happen under Middle Eastern barbarians who employ the house maids. I think this US based labour and human rights organizations will see what the doing to workers. They rape and torture them like unbundle. This human right organization does not see that because they cannot act on those since their people need to keep digging oil as long as they can. So, human rights are no problem. Anyway this problem is ours. Since, the stupid Sri Lankan governments still sell our women to Middle Eastern barbarians. Please stop sending women to Middle East as house maids. There are so many poor countries around the world, but never send women as housemaids. What is wrong with Sri Lanka? Create some jobs for them inside country.

I am so glad and thankful to this American firm for firmly standing on to the rights of these poor workers. They work so long hours for so less money to feed their families and nothing else. If they want to sell their body and make money they can do so and earn much more than what they earn by working in classic fashion. It is a dignity that they want nothing else and justice.

SRI LANKA is a mass exporter of prostitutes to the world and we grow our economy by asking our women to sell sex. such a shame. all those innocent women r being raped, nailed, tortured and the government does nothing. in the north n east war, the army raped many women, the government did nothing. THIS IS A RAPE FRIENDLY GOVERNMENT. SRI LANKA JEYAWEVA

WOULD ANY WORKER TRUST THESE OFFICIALS, LEAVING ASIDE TESTIFYING AGAINST THESE CRIMINALS?
"NO REPORTS", "WE CANNOT FIND ANY EVIDENCE" ETC ETC ARE JUST EXCUSES NOT TO PROTECT OUR OWN SISTERS AND CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY.
DID WE HEAR OF THOSE AT THE TOP SAYING ‘TRAITORS' AND ‘PATRIOTIC' PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY EVERYTIME THEY WANT TO HANG SOMEONE WHO DON'T AGREE WITH THEM? WELL HERE'S THE CHANCE TO GET SOME EROTIC UNPATRIOTIC TYPES!!

Wow the government needs to read these comments it is sad that such a large number of Lankans have no faith in their government and its institutions and actually if you look deeper into any of their politicians be there govt or opposition.

The Jordanian police are very strict in these matters and what is holding these women from taking the matter up with the police and what action has the Foreign Employment Bureau or the SL consulate in Jordan done about this I don't know whether I am dreaming or reading real news. This is very disturbing and shame to SL if they don't act and investigate and reveal the criminal and the facts. Jayantha
