Bangaldeshi migrant workers haven’t been able to go to Kuala Lumpur due to allegations of irregularities. After so many years, the possibility of immigration is opening up again, but why is the process being questioned over same allegations?
A Malaysian MP and two migrant rights bodies have urged Human Resources Minister M Saravanan to explain his decision for allowing only 25 Bangladeshi agencies to recruit workers for Malaysia, reported Malaysian daily Malay Mail yesterday.
Four Bangladeshi men and two of their Malaysian wives were arrested in Malaysia for allegedly posing as a third party of Malaysian immigration department and getting migrant workers fake work permits in exchange of money.
Malaysian government will cancel the quotas given to employers who cut migrant workers' salaries to cover costs of bringing them into in the country, Human Resource Minister Datuk Seri M Saravanan said.
Is a nexus of a few Bangladeshi recruitment agencies and a powerful segment of the human resources ministry in Malaysia trying to impose unfair and unethical conditions on the long-awaited reopening of the Malaysian labour market?
Bangladesh Civil Society for Migrants (BCSM) today called upon both Bangladesh and Malaysia governments to avert repeat of past mistakes including “syndication” that led to closure of the Malaysian market to Bangladeshi workers.
