Vietnamese workers in Russia return home
HA NOI — Of the 39 Vietnamese workers who complained of maltreatment in Russia, 11 returned to Viet Nam on Sunday.
12 others are having their repatriation procedures completed for a flight home scheduled on May 26.
However, the rest wished to continue to work in Russia.
Relevant authorities were making efforts to take the workers home and to protect their rights.
The workers from the northern provinces of Ha Nam, Hung Yen and Bac Giang were taken to Russia in January by a labour broker to work at a leather garments factory. They said they had been badly exploited and forced to work long hours in poor conditions without being paid. — VNS
