Claims that Malaysia Handed 1,000s of Burmese Illegal Immigrants to Human Traffickers

The US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations has urged Malaysia to probe claims by refugees from Myanmar (Burma) that Malaysian immigration officials handed them over to human traffickers on Malaysia's border with Thailand.

A Senate report on 23 April 2009 that claimed illegal Burmese immigrants deported from Malaysia were often turned over to human traffickers and forced to work in brothels, fishing boats and restaurants in Thailand if they had no money to purchase their freedom.

The report was based on a one year review by committee staff who spoke to migrants from military-ruled Myanmar, also known as Burma, and human rights activists.

According to the report, in recent 'a few thousand' Burmese immigrants may have become victims of extortion and trafficking once they were deported to Malaysia's northern border with Thailand.

'Upon arrival at the Malaysia-Thailand border, human traffickers reportedly take possession of the migrants,' the report stated.

Another World Record for Malaysia

"Malaysia Boleh" once again!!

The International Shipping Press, including Lloyds List, reports this:

Alphaliner estimated that 9% of capacity operated by the world’s top 24 lines is currently unemployed, equivalent to almost 1m teu.

Data from Alphaliner also shows that Malaysia’s MISC has the largest volume of container vessels out of action, with 32% of capacity being idle.

MISC is not even in the top ten of container ship companies, yet it has made this world record.

Those top ten are here:



1 Maersk 8%

2 MSC 1%

3 CMA / CGM 2%

4 Evergreen 0%

5 COSCO 10%

6 Hapag-Lloyd 2%

7 APL 23%

8 CSCL 16%

9 NYK 11%

10 Hanjin 14%

and way down the list somewhere


with a world record of 32% idle!

How shameful that is!

1Malaysia m' Arse!!

Utusan Malaysia the best selling Malay Language daily newspaper in Malaysia, which by the way is contolled by UMNO of which Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak is the head, has quoted several Malay politicians and activists as saying:

'Malays should put aside their political differences so that they can jointly resist pressure from the Chinese and Indian minorities'.

The Malays must rise and unite in facing the demands of other races that are now seen as increasingly excessive,” said a paragraph in the article.

and Taiwan News HERE

Najib has been talking about a '1Malaysia policy', that seems to be just that hypocritical talk, is it yet another case of no action, talk only?

UMNO it seems will never reform, lessons apparently still haven't been learned, and the complaisant 'head in the sand' attitude remains.

Does UMNO stand for: Unrepentant Moronic Nincompoops Over-and -over-again

So it is now quite apparent (as visible as the balls of a dog in fact) which race in Malaysia is the most self-centred and overtly racial.

Whither Malaysia?

Who knows, but the good news will hopefully be the demise of UMNO and all race based political parties.

Politics should aim to be secular and racially neutral, otherwise the future looks quite bleak.

Rais Yatim

Meanwhile the Minister of Information, Communication and Culture (also affectionalely known as 'Ministry of Propaganda Propagation'), Rais Yatim was reported thus:

Rais Yatim said the ministry played an important role in establishing only the right kind of information* reached the masses.

“The government is not looking to find fault with bloggers and other Internet users but would like them to follow the law to ensure they did not misuse it.”

"It is not that we are looking for faults all the time. But we would like the right of the people to be guarded by the relevant authorities and the law. "Our aim is to see the 1Malaysia concept succeed. However, in order to succeed, the facts must not be twisted or misinterpreted by some until it raises racial sentiments.”

"If the right information* does not reach the people how can there be success”?

“So, I want everyone to understand and respect the law."

*(= propaganda)
