The petition intends to put pressure on the Ugandan government to have them exhume the remains of a migrant worker who died and was buried illegally in Saudi Arabia.
Shadia Najjuko, 31, died in June this year and they consequently buried her in Saudi Arabia.
The family of the deceased approached the NGO and through its lawyers of Arthur-arutha Legal & Co, has threatened to go to courts of law.
Apparently, ABS Consulting Group, a company authorized by the Ministry of Labor, Gender, and Social Development externalized the deceased.
They cleared her to operate as a housemaid in Riyadh for Bajdaa Jaza Qaynan Almutai.
The family accused the company of failing to make due diligence to ensure the protection of the deceased against violations.
Consequently, the violations claimed the life of Shadia who they quickly buried in Saudi Arabia. They said all their efforts to at least recover the body for a proper burial have proved futile.
‘’Our client’s efforts to get a post mortem report and retrieve the body of the late have been rendered futile. Indeed, this is buttressed by the report issued by the Ministry of Gender indicating that the government failed to obtain a medical report and death certificate to prove the cause of death and neither has the ministry been providing information pertaining to the place of burial of the remains of the late,’’ said Arthur Murangira, the lead lawyer of the organization.
Najjuko is one of the many Ugandan housemaids who have in the past lost their lives in the Middle East.
