Saudi Arabia: Critics slam human trafficking of Moroccan ‘maids for sale’

In Saudi Arabia, pictures of Moroccan women have been circulated on social media to be sold as housemaids for lump sums of cash. The Twitter picture above shows two Moroccan women being advertised for “sale” as a domestic worker. The woman on the right is described as being 30 years old, with five years’ work experience in Saudi Arabia, and knows how to cook and clean; she is offered for 1500 Saudi riyal (€325, $397). The woman on the left is described as “able to cook Saudi dishes and enjoys children.” She is also being offered for 1500 riyal.
