Pakistanis trapped in Malaysia


Express May 08, 2010

LAHORE:

More than thirty six Pakistanis are reported to be trapped in Malaysia with little money and no work, after being cheated by their travel agents.


Sources said the concerned individuals were sent to Malaysia from different cities of Pakistan through agents.


They were promised work permits by their agents. Cheated, the thirty six Pakistanis are now living in a flat without money to even buy food. Their travel documents are with their agents.


One of the men spoke to Express news via phone and said they were living like prisoners and were awaiting Pakistani authorities to use their influence to bring them back home.

Syed A. Mateen | 10 years ago | Reply After Dubai, Saudi Arabia and some European Countries, Malaysia is becoming the focal point for human traffickers. While the job of human traffickers is to take money and leave the job seekers to starve in another country, it is the basic fault of the people who get lured in the trap laid down by human traffickers. The government of Pakistan should come to rescue the trapped workers and bring back the innocent people and at the same time human traffickers should be arrested and brought to justice. Investigations should also be made simultaneously in Malaysia to see who the counterparts of Pakistani human traffickers are and they should also be taken to task by the Malaysian authorities to end the menace of human trafficking in both the countries.
