US Senate beating on the ‘corruption and refugee’ allegations of the Myanmar Refugees

US Senate beating on the

‘corruption and refugee’ allegations of Myanmar Refugees

There are many refugees and asylum seekers in Malaysia today – FACT.

These refugees come mainly from Burma (Myanmar), Southern Thailand, Southern Philippines,…

Refugees normally just run for their life and liberty, and this means that many would have not left their country ‘legally’ or entered Malaysia “legally”. Most will not even have passports.

How many refugees are there? Between 100,000 to 400,000…we really do not know.

Malaysia treats many of these refugees as undocumented migrant workers – but really they are not. They are refugees and asylum seekers, and they should be seen as such.

Deputy minister ‘catches’ off duty doctors lazing while patients wait

Deputy minister ‘catches’ off duty doctors lazing while patients wait

Comment: Problem with the Malaysian Indians and Chinese is once they got some power, they became irrogant, proud and rude. I am not condoning the lazy doctors but just giving my observation and informed remarks as a feed-back only.

Update: Now it is clear that he was scolding to the off duty HOs. Than, we should scold that arrogant Deputy Minister for not working in his office even if that was Sunday! Afterall the opposition won more than 90% of the seats in Federal Territory. His position is just like the status of Perak speaker. The Deputy minister should just quit his job but he is shamelessly holding and acting arrogantly to the post. Continue reading

Najib told to act on damning trafficking report

Najib told to act on damning trafficking report

There is mounting pressure for newly-minted Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to take action in the wake of a damning United States Senate report on human trafficking in Malaysia.

New York-based Human Rights Watch has called on Najib “to protect the rights of refugees and victims of human trafficking.”

Meanwhile, veteran parliamentarian Lim Kit Siang urged the government to respond to allegations that Malaysian officials are complicit in the human trafficking of refugees.

“This is not only most damaging to Malaysia’s international image but raises also grave questions about Malaysia’s human rights commitment in Asean,” said Lim.

Two days ago, the US Senate released a report which once again put Malaysia under the spotlight on its long-standing problem of human trafficking.

The report was the result of investigations prompted by allegations of the trafficking of thousands of Burmese refugees in Malaysia who were held in detention centres around the country.
