The man was ap­par­ently up­set that a male doc­tor had de­liv­ered his wife’s child and hence he shot the Jor­da­nian doc­tor, on Wed­nes­day evening,

Po­lice me­dia spokesman Col. Fawaz bin Jameel Al-Maiman said here on Mon­day that af­ter shoot­ing the doc­tor, the man, in his thir­ties, had fled the scene in his car.

JED­DAH: At least 30 re­cruit­ment of­fices will be­gin of­fer­ing ser­vices to re­cruit do­mes­tic work­ers in the com­ing weeks as part of the initial phase of the project, ac­cord­ing to the spokesman of the Min­istry of La­bor, Khalid Aba Al-Khail.

The salaries, the spokesman said, will be con­sid­ered as per one’s na­tion­al­ity, as also an agree­ment signed by the min­istry to reg­u­late the salary struc­ture.

He said this sys­tem con­trib­utes to the ver­i­fi­ca­tion of ser­vices and in­creases com­pet­i­tive­ness be­tween the of­fices in or­der to im­prove the ser­vices of­fered to clients.

He said em­ploy­ees’s trans­fer to other em­ploy­ers will be oblig­a­tory only af­ter three months if the em­ployer wishes to trans­fer her/his ser­vices.

Al-Kheil stated that work­ers from coun­tries that signed agree­ments with the King­dom will be ensured, say­ing the sys­tem al­lows the is­suance of 50 to 200 visas for each of­fice, with the to­tal num­ber of re­cruit­ment of­fices reach­ing 580.

Waleed Al-Swaidan, chair­man of the Na­tional Re­cruit­ment Com­mit­tee in the Saudi Coun­cil of Cham­bers, said this decision will con­trib­ute to the pro­vi­sion of do­mes­tic la­bor and will pre­pare them to meet the grow­ing de­mands of the sec­tor in­stead of wait­ing for months on end.
