KUALA LUMPUR: UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) representative for Malaysia Richard Towle has called on the government to give refugees the right to work in the country, saying it would “make a huge difference” in their lives.

“We will be very happy if the government would agree to provide some form of legal documentation to allow the Chins who are already working here the right to work legally,” said Towle at the Refugees No More screening and town hall session yesterday.
