“We received two letters which mentioned that they (the workers) were in prison for seven months in Syria. One came from their authority and another from our ministry,” one police officer wishing to be anonymous said.

But he did not mention which ministry it is.

When asked what types of crime the workers committed, he said: “No such things were mentioned in the letters. They only stated about their imprisonment.”

However, police will investigate the matter to see if they (the migrant workers) had committed any “anti-state” activities or are a “threat to the country.”
