No recent smuggling of migrants in Johor waters


KOTA TINGGI: The Johor Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) and the Australia Border Force (ABF) have not detected any smuggling of West Asian migrants in the waters of Johor for the past few years due to their continuous integrated operations especially in Operation Redback since 2011.

Its director Maritime Rear Admiral Datuk Abu Bakar Idris said the strict rules or regulations implemented by the operation had to a certain extent reduced the smuggling of migrants to third countries especially from Afghanistan and Iran.
