Justice for Sabri Umar: Do not deport wrongly convicted migrant worker

WE, the 19 undersigned groups, are pleased that Sabri Umar was acquitted and released from prison in Sabah on July 22, 2022, by Justice Lim Hock Leng at the Tawau High Court.

He had been wrongly convicted on April 19, 2022, by the Sessions Court of being in Malaysia illegally when, in fact, he is a documented migrant worker with a valid work permit. This is evident from, among others, his Indonesian passport, which was seized by Malaysian police on April 5, 2022.
