Suddenly there is buzz in the mall, telephones are ringing, people working in the mall are talking in sign language, the reason being there is a “shoon checking”. For the uninitiated ‘shoon’ is being refered to an Inspector from Ministry of labour who has authority to catch illegal workers. Most of the “Asians” with 20# or no Iqama (valid residence) were seen running to the bathroom or foodcourt thanking God for ‘keeping them safe from deportation’ yet again.
And that’s life, some get lucky, some won’t, the fear of “iqama” will keep haunting.
