The Daily Star Bangladesh 2 November 2018

Kuala Lumpur has opposed Dhaka’s proposal for giving the undocumented Bangladeshi migrants in Malaysia a fresh chance to legalise themselves, say officials at the expatriates’ welfare ministry.

The undocumented Bangladeshis will have to return home, a Malaysian delegation told a Bangladesh team at a meeting at the expatriates’ welfare ministry in Dhaka on Wednesday.

“Initially, Malaysian officials said they could not start fresh recruitment if the undocumented Bangladeshis don’t return home,” Aminul Islam, additional secretary at the expatriates’ welfare ministry, told this correspondent.

However, the Malaysian team said they would place Dhaka’s proposal before their high-ups, Aminul said.
