KUCHING: They were promised high-paying jobs in Cambodia, but instead were duped by a “recruitment agency” which was a front for a human trafficking syndicate and are now languishing in jail several hundred kilometres from Phnom Penh.
The Malaysians, including nine women, were detained on Dec 11 in Poipet, Banteay Mancheay, on the outskirts of the Cambodian capital, for allegedly being members of an international online gaming syndicate.
However, when the Malaysian embassy in Cambodia investigated, they found that the Malaysians, aged between 19 and 44, and mostly from Sabah and Sarawak, had been waiting for legitimate jobs while in Cambodia.
One reason not to believe any recruitment centers about 'high-paying jobs' in foreign countries. Goddamnit all.
