PM Lee Hsien Loong denies foreign workers suffer hardship and injustice from their employers in Singapore


Manorama Online, 15 Dec 2013
Singapore: Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has said that last Sunday's riot in the city state was spontaneous and there is no reason to believe that it was due to unhappiness among foreign workers.
"The migrant workers involved were employed by a variety of companies and lived in different places," Lee said in Tokyo.
Lee added, "We have not seen any evidence of that. There is no tension, there is no sense of grievances or hardship or injustice."
"We believe that foreign workers in Singapore ought to be treated fairly and properly. We do not stand for ill treatment or unfair treatment of foreign workers. We have to make sure they are well treated, they are paid properly on time, their safety is taken care of, their living conditions are up to standard, and they are given full protection of the law," he said.
