PETALING JAYA: The ending of refugee protection for the ethnic Chin community in Malaysia could lead to cases of smuggling and human trafficking, said human rights NGO Tenaganita.  

“Smugglers and trafficking agents are always looking for a way to bring people in by deceit,” said its executive director Glorene A. Das.
