PETALING JAYA: Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (pic) has denied that he met with a man, known only as Datuk Amin, about bringing in 80,000 Bangladeshi workers to Malaysia.

The Home Minister said he does not know the individual, nor was there any discussion on recruiting Bangladeshi workers to the country.

“I have asked the Home Ministry’s secretary-general to give a detailed briefing to me regarding an allegation that the ministry had approved the man’s application to bring in 80,000 Bangladeshi workers to Malaysia a few days before GE14.

“I also ordered the implementation of such approval, if it indeed exists, to be delayed until I have been briefed on the matter,” he said in a statement on Sunday (June 3).

The ministry will not compromised with any party which abuses the system of hiring foreign workers for profit.

“We will take stern action against anyone who breaks the laws and jeopardised the nation’s interest,” he said.
