BEIRUT: A number of former Saudi Oger employees protested Tuesday outside the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for its lack of assistance in their quest to obtain late payments.

Dozen of workers, speaking on behalf of their 2500 former colleagues, blasted the Ministry for refusing to stand by their side and refusing to meet with them.

Meanwhile, the Ministry issued a statement maintaining that no meeting between both parties was scheduled.

Saudi Oger, the construction company once owned by the family of Prime Minister Saad Hariri, has been embroiled in controversy in recent years after defaulting on its debt following the drop in oil prices, corruption and mismanagement.

As a result, thousands of employees were dismissed and left out of pocket.
