Key Briefs & Reports: Senate briefing

Senatebriefing

On August 7, 2009, Dr. Thang Nguyen, Executive Director for Boat People, SOS (BPSOS), met with several Senate staffers to discuss several cases that CAMSA is working on. BPSOS, a CAMSA coalition member, was asked to give a briefing to the Senate staffers as they prepared for their trip to Malaysia.

Dr. Thang discussed Malaysia’s laws on trafficking. He pointed out how hard it has been to get the Malaysian government to enforce their own laws and how the laws favor the traffickers, not the victims.

He discussed the Sony, Winbond and Polar Twin Advance cases. The staff on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, stated that they will explore these cases to the Malaysian government when they meet with them the following week. The Senate staff delegation will meet with the CAMSA team in Penang and other NGOs that have partnered with CAMSA.
