PETALING JAYA: Four Malaysian human trafficking victims, who were believed to had been duped by false job offers, are due to return home by the end of the week from Cambodia, says Datuk Seri Michael Chong (pic).

When contacted, the MCA Public Services and Complaints Department head said the matter had been confirmed by the Malaysian embassy in Cambodia.

"The four are due to be back this week and the embassy is communicating with their families in securing their flights back home.

"There are still four more being held by Cambodian authorities but we hope they will be released by next week as well.

"I am very saddened to see advertisements for these bogus jobs still being published online and victims are still falling for it. Bukit Aman has contacted me and I will be meeting the task force on this matter in the near future," he said.

He also thanked the efforts of the embassy and urged Malaysians to not fall prey to such scams.

"I still get calls from families of victims, even from Sarawak. There are also victims who managed to run away from these syndicates," he said.
