Egypt’s Minister of State for Immigration and Egyptian Expatriates’ Affairs Nabila Makram held a meeting with Saudi representative at the Arab League Ambassador Osama Nqali to discuss the complaint made by 300 Egyptian pharmacists against the Saudi Tadawi Healthcare Company after the pharmacists did not receive four months worth of salaries.
The company also did not pay commissions and incentives worth 30 percent of the total salaries for ten months and suspended the renewal of employees’ health insurance and work licenses in the pharmacies.
Makram stressed that official and popular relations between the two countries were close and the ministry would follow up on the complaint with Naqli to solve it as quickly as possible.
Makram added that the ministry contacted the Egyptian embassy in Saudi Arabia, the Egyptian labor attaché and the Egyptian Pharmacists Syndicate to learn the details of the complaint and refer it to ministerial bodies.
Naqli asserted that he would be ready to explain the complaint to the concerned bodies to reach a solution.
