The Bangladesh Consulate General has submitted four proposals to the Saudi Foreign Ministry in this regard

The Labor Welfare Wing of the Bangladesh Consulate General in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, has taken an initiative for the release and repatriation of Bangladeshi prisoners from Jeddah.

The Ministry of Prisons and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia have been requested for assistance in this matter.

There are at least 603 Bangladeshis in 17 prisons of the port city, reports Bangla Tribune.

Counselor (Labour) Md Aminul Islam said: "We are not allowed to visit the prisoners due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“However, we want to continue our efforts in the interest of the Bangladeshi nationals.”

The Bangladesh Consulate General has submitted four proposals to the Saudi Foreign Ministry regarding the repatriation initiative.

According to which, immediate action should be taken to send those whose sentences have expired or will expire back to Bangladesh.

Meanwhile, those who have completed a quarter of their sentence, should be waived of the remaining sentence and sent back home considering good behaviour.

Besides, the ones arrested for the first time or sentenced for petty crimes should be pardoned and sent back to Bangladesh, the proposal added.
