Case calls for Domestic Workers’ Act


KE Arah 189, a coalition of domestic workers and domestic worker support organisations, was shocked by the report of a 44-year-old domestic worker being rescued from slave conditions in Sitiawan recently.

This case highlights the extreme vulnerability of so many domestic workers to the relentless abuses of their employers.

Although very little is known about the victim in this case, we understand that her employers, a mother-daughter duo, are being investigated under Section 12 of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants Acts 2007.
