KUCHING: The federal government has been called upon to set up a WhatsApp hotline for quick action to rescue Malaysian victims who have been duped into working in Cambodia.
This was following a news report that the Hong Kong government will be working with the Chinese foreign ministry and Interpol to bring residents who are victims of human-trafficking cases in Southeast Asia back home, with a new WhatsApp hotline set up for quick action.
Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Public Complaint Bureau chief Milton Foo Tiang Wee echoed the same intitiative in a press conference at Galacity this morning.
“According to global news reports, thousands have been imprisoned, abused and forced to work and scam people around the world.
“In view of the rampant scam cases (in the country), the federal government, Foreign Affairs Ministry and Home Affairs Ministry should set up a similar hotline for quick action to rescue the victims in Cambodia,” he said.
