FEB 12, 2012 Kathmandu – Thousands of Young Nepali men and women are leaving Nepal to seek better job and life abroad, Often finding good job but most of the time it is not a pleasant story to tell. Here in this video which Pete Pattison investigates the trafficking of people escaping poverty and conflict in Nepal. Unscrupulous agents take huge sums of money from them for work abroad then consign them to slavery and appalling conditions in the Middle East. Many are abused by their employers and some are killed at the hands of agents. Video shows some disturbing images, please consider watching cautiously.
