Key Briefs & Reports: CAMSA Turns to Tenaganita in Case of Chinese Nat’l

China Malaysia Vietnam Vietnamese BPSOS Boat People SOS CAMSA human trafficking   Ủy Ban Cứu Người Vượt Biển UBCNVB nạn buôn ngườiJune 4, 2009: The Coalition to Abolish Modern-day Slavery in Asia (CAMSA) last week received information concerning a Chinese guest worker in Malaysia who alleged sexual abuse at the hands of her employer. CAMSA’s team in Penang pledged to dig deeper into the matter.

After further investigation, the CAMSA staff involved concluded that there is insufficient evidence to classify the case as human trafficking under applicable laws.

In order to be sure that justice is done, however, the case will be referred to the local nonprofit and partner organization Tenaganita, which is better equipped to serve this particular client.

“In our work, our office receives many reports that are not necessarily human trafficking cases,” said one CAMSA team member. “We refer these cases to other organizations that have more of the requisite experience and resources.”
