PETALING JAYA: Malaysia’s policy on foreign workers is fraught with Umno crony recruitment agencies ripping off millions of ringgit from foreign workers, Johor DAP deputy chairman S Ramakrishnan said today.
Ramakrishnan added that instead of formulating a long-term comprehensive foreign labour policy, Umno politicians were busy plotting more schemes to swindle migrant workers.
“Activists and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have voiced out that the government’s 6P programme to register foreign workers is a failure and a scam,” he said.
He added that the 6P programme was monopolised by government officials and Umno cronies who rip off those who wanted to stay back or return home.
