PETALING JAYA: A Taiwanese tourist claims she was detained at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) for 35 hours because of a "damaged passport", during which immigration officers allegedly ill-treated her and demanded for money.

Posting her ordeal on Facebook under the name Chiao Mei, the 33-year-old woman said her mobile phone and passport were confiscated before she could inform her family of the situation.
