Bangladesh Set to Repatriate 40,000 Workers Back to Libya

Following the installation of the new leadership in Libya, the Bangladeshi government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has decided to send back to Libya the repatriated workers to the foreign companies they were employed with in Libya before the conflict that ousted former Libyan leader Muammar Al Qathafi.

About 36,000 to 40,000 Bangladeshi migrant workers were evacuated from Benghazi, Tripoli and other cities in the wake of the break-out of the conflict between the pro- and anti-Al Qathafi forces.

With the help of the International Organisation of Migrants, IOM, the government of Bangladesh managed to evacuate the migrant workers mostly from the Egyptian and Tunisian borders. Many of those workers were employed with foreign companies, including Chinese and South Korean.
