According to Bernama, this came about in response to a letter raised on the subject by a migrant rights activist to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

According to its Minister V. Sivakumar, the purpose of the activities was to make sure that the letter’s claims of financial bondage and unfavorable living conditions were untrue.

“I view this matter seriously as I want to prevent actions outside of the law.

“I also want anyone involved not to repeat things like this, and we want to avoid the occurrence of forced labor in this country,” he told reporters after attending the third series of the Jelajah MADANI with the Human Resources Minister in Gombak on 5 November.

He was making comments in response to a story in the local press about campaigner Andy Hall, who claimed in a letter to OHCHR, a body housed under the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Switzerland, that hundreds of Bangladeshi laborers were suffering in this nation as debt slaves and jobless.

Regarding Malaysians frequently tricked by employment scams overseas, Sivakumar clarified that his ministry will persist in educating young people so they do not fall for the fictitious assurances of intermediaries.

He said that in order to ensure that students who are about to enter the workforce are aware of the potential jobs in this nation, his ministry, through Talent Corporation Malaysia Bhd (TalentCorp), is also putting various plans into action. These include expanding opportunities in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and ensuring that students are not dependent on foreign nations.

Additionally, he announced that until November 13, applications for admission to 1,334 TVET institutes around the country for the January 2024 session accepted.

“I hope youths seize the opportunity to venture into the field of TVET because the courses offered are tailored according to the needs of the labor market, thus guaranteeing employment opportunities in the future.

He continued by saying that by providing opportunities for skill development to all Malaysians, regardless of race or socioeconomic background, the government has mainstreamed TVET skills training as the primary option.

Speaking about today’s Jelajah MADANI program, Sivakumar stated that over 1,000 job opportunities involving 10 employers were provided to job seekers. This is part of the government’s ongoing effort to guarantee that job seekers, particularly Selangor’s vulnerable group, have access to opportunities from various sectors.

150 food baskets were also handed to the less fortunate, and 10 computers were awarded to deserving kids from low-income households.
