Key Briefs & Reports: No Progress in Vietnamese, Malaysian Probes of Winbond Abuses

camsa-logoFebruary 20, 2009: Here’s what’s happening on the ground in Malaysia.

The Winbond case (click here for background) is in a kind of limbo. Vietnamese authorities who are (theoretically, at least) looking into the case seem to have made no headway. The same is true of the Malaysian authorities. Coalition to Abolish Modern-day Slavery in Asia (CAMSA) staff members are currently trying to encourage the Malaysian authorities to take a more proactive stance on this case.

Regarding the CAMSA project to create a centralized database of human trafficking cases in Malaysia, a representative of the Penang office met this week with local partners to develop a systematic way to record and store data. It is the office’s goal to have this database fully operational by the end of March.
