February 17, 2009: The US State Department is in the process of compiling its annual Trafficking in Persons Report for 2009, and has asked for input on Malaysia from the Committee to Abolish Modern-day Slavery in Asia (CAMSA). This is an excellent opportunity for CAMSA to support the Malaysian government in its efforts to improve its anti-human trafficking measures, since CAMSA has been heavily engaged in resolving labor-management disputes involving Vietnamese guest workers at Esquel, Polar Twin Advance, and Winbond, to name but three cases.
In the past, the State Department’s document, which is also known as the TIP report, has prompted the Malaysian government to take new steps on the issue of human trafficking. CAMSA welcomes the opportunity to contribute to this important report.
