Over 25 Indians, including seven from Tamil Nadu, are languishing in jails in Israel after being cheated by job rackets.
According to Kav LaOved, an NGO working for the protection of rights of disadvantaged workers employed in Israel and by Israelis in the occupied territories, the Indians landed in batches between December 2007 and April 2008.
In a digest of complaints submitted to the immigration administration of Israel, which is available with this newspaper, Kav LaOved said that on December 3, 2007, 10 workers, who arrived in Tel Aviv through a manpower recruitment agency, were charged $5,000 at the airport for work permits, but they did not get jobs. Instead, they ended up losing their money and legal status.
