This ban will be effective from 2nd July. Few days back Indonesia announced that it would not send maid/domestic workers to Saudi Arabia until Government of Saudi Arabia signs a deal on migrant worker protection.
The suspension followed after the execution of an Indonesian maid convicted of murdering her Saudi employer`s wife..
Around seven million foreigners work in Saudi Arabia, of whom more than a million are Indonesian. Most are domestic workers, mainly cooks, maids and cleaners.
