When a Syrian PRO can be a CEO of Malaysian company in Abu Dhabi

What a joke, one of the best jokes ever!

Read this, a PRO (Public Relation Officer), which in the UAE means a man in white jubah who assists the companies in getting employee visas, mostly dealing with the UAE Naturalization and Immigration Department, has been appointed as the CEO of a Malaysian company in Abu Dhabi.

Normally these PROs are Emiratis.

The PRO-cum-CEO of that Malaysian company is a Syrian. How BIZARRE!

The company I believe is a listed company back home.

And the PRO-cum-CEO is firing Malaysians who refuse to part with their passports. He is also threatening Malaysia employees that he can make sure that whoever refuse to obey his (as CEO) instruction will NOT get any jobs in Malaysia! How powerful indeed.

Under the UAE law, as everywhere else (except Saudi I think), EMPLOYERS CANNOT KEEP THE EMPLOYEES PASSPORTS!
