>brokers exploit Bangladeshi workers in Maldives

>HEAVENLY turquoise blue waters, lush tropical islands and an air of isolation like that of Robinson Crusoe–these are just a few images that come to one’s mind while thinking of the Maldives, a group of tiny islands in the Indian Ocean.
But for at least 15,000 Bangladeshis who went there for work, the Maldives is the name of a nightmarish place where they went to make fortune but are now barely living from hand to mouth because of unscrupulous middlemen, Rashidul Hasan writes.
Al-Amin, an 18-year-old boy who went to the Maldives in quest of fortune, finally found his destination in killing himself on July 25 out of frustration as he was not given the job assured by his middleman.
Murad, who went to the island country along with Al-Amin, somehow managed a ticket on the Dhaka-bound Best Air flight three days later. He also did not get the promised job.
Murad said, “Thousands of Bangladeshi workers in the Maldives are passing days in deep frustration as they are yet to get any job.”
