‘I am also aware who were the dark hands who were instrumental in Malaysia being ‘invaded’ by foreigners under various guises – students, maids, workers, ‘professionals, businessmen, investors’, Malaysia my second home, former DP10 and its replacement and not forgetting the legalization attempts gone rogue of illegals!’
IMMIGRATION RAIDS – OUTRAGE FROM FOREIGN & LOCALS SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST!
I had just congratulated the Director General of Malaysia’s Immigration for addressing the massive presence of illegals in Peninsula Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak!
Of course he did not return a response – perhaps far too busy or who knows I may be a persona non grata as far as he is concerned!
After all I have only being monitoring and addressing issues pertaining to the home ministry from the time of our former deputy prime minister now – Tun Musa Hitam from the 80s?
What would I know?
I must be pretty stupid, right?
So I am not surprised to be drawn in to feedback from both diplomats’ abroad and Malaysian industry captains, players and consumers whose employees namely maids were caught in various draw nets thrown without a common sense approach!
I even received a call from a dear diplomat friend very close to the Philippines President very concerned at the screenshots and recordings sent to them!
It is as if there is a war declared on foreigners?
Do we not care for the dignity of those legal ones caught in the raid?
I have just returned from a comprehensive visit to several Malaysian towns and namely Kuala Lumpur to know that there is no doubt in my mind that we have been ‘invaded’ by foreigners working and managing various sector work both as workers or managers!
I am aware that this is no coincidence or just a new happening!
I am also aware who were the dark hands who were instrumental in Malaysia being ‘invaded’ by foreigners under various guises – students, maids, workers, ‘professionals, businessmen, investors’, Malaysia my second home, former DP10 and its replacement and not forgetting the legalization attempts gone rogue of illegals!
I am also aware and been well updated on both the politicians, players, officialdom involved in this racket!
So yes it is convenient to place Malaysia on a ‘war footing’ against illegals without going to the source and also at the same real time sacking officialdom who are and have been involved in this racket from time immemorial!
They are not just at Putrajaya both all over, even at our foreign embassies as I found out after my recent visit to India and certainly Chennai!
This has always being a multi million ringgit operation and everyone knows about it so cut the super bullshit!
I challenge anyone who disagrees with me to an official debate over the Malaysian networks!
‘Berani mari lah!’
So I am indeed saddened that once again Malaysia’s image and reputation has been damaged by an act or a series of action that were not seriously thought through, managed, driven with carefully positioned ‘Oversight Committee of respected civil society leaders!’
Resulting in an employer taking to Facebook to describe the ordeal of her Filipino helper who was reportedly detained and handcuffed by the authorities during an immigration raid on Sunday.
Lynn Townley said her helper, who was taken at the Kotaraya Shopping Complex in Kuala Lumpur along with 300 others, had a copy of her passport and a picture of her visa.
“But instead of checking the documents, they loaded everyone into buses like animals and made them wait without water for five hours,” she added.
According to Townley, her helper was handcuffed to 10 other people suspected of working illegally, who were chained together the entire time with officers even making them go to the bathroom as a group.
“They were taken to Malaysian Immigration, Putrajaya.
Several of the legal employers were present, with the original documents, desperately trying to talk to the detained individuals or officers, but were yelled at and refused to listen to the employers.
“My helper has been working for me for 10 years, always legal and a kind and caring member of our TTDI community,” Townley added.
“She was released with bruises on her wrists from the handcuffs and marker on her arms from being tagged like a criminal.
She continued stating:
‘I understand the need to check documents and tighten down on illegal workers, but this process was absolutely unnecessary and cruel.” Her post was accompanied by pictures of the marks on her helper’s arms and of the detained individuals seated on the floor behind yellow immigration department tape.
At real time her post made waves on social media, with many criticizing the way in which the detainees were treated.
This is 2018!
There are diplomats and foreigners watching the script when their citizens are being treated such!
To me this kind of official behavior is super outrageous and totally unacceptable!
I appeal to dear friend, Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin to set up a commission comprising of stakeholders and civil society leaders to address the whole question of foreign workers need, supply, approvals, illegals within, conduits working hand in glove with traffickers and others for financial interest and kickbacks, super corruption and certainly today, an over-supply of foreign workers in Malaysia!
Better – name and shame all those in officialdom and outside who are the conduits and shenanigans in this human trade!
