KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): As many as 130 foreigners have been working at private institutions across Afghanistaninfo-icon without having legal documents, a Ministry of Labour official said on Monday.

The ministry’s spokesman Ali Iftikhari told a news conference the private organizations had been asked in this regard, but there was no response as yet.

"Some foreigners are illegally working at hospitals, media outlets and other organisations," he said, adding the organizations had been asked to register their workers having no legal documents, but nothing had so far been done on their part.

There were 17,800 foreigners who had legal documents and worked at different organizations, he said.

Officials say three million out of the nine million people eligible for work are unemployed.

According to work regulations, eligible Afghans should be given priority, Iftikhari said, adding the regulations had not been followed in many cases.
