Bangladesh Believes In Malaysia's Way Of Solving Issues Of Foreign Workers (Bernama)

Well, there are many sending countries - and Malaysia can decide to stop accepting migrants from any country - and maybe this is the reason for Bangladesh taking this position.

Or maybe, Bangladesh is not taking about access for justice for migrant workers, worker rights, etc..


Bangladesh Believes In Malaysia's Way Of Solving Issues Of Foreign Workers

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 9 (Bernama) -- The Bangladeshi government believes in Malaysia's way of solving issues of foreign workers, especially from Bangladesh, Dewan Negara president Tan Sri Abu Zahar Ujang said.

So much so, he said Bangladesh would not question the decisions made by Malaysia concerning the Bangladeshi workers in the country, including action taken on those who violated the law.

"They know what happened here and the treatment given by our country. If there are baseless and untrue allegations, the Bangladesh High Commissioner here will personally counter the allegations."

Abu Zahar said this to Bernama after receiving a courtesy call from Bangladesh High Commissioner in Malaysia AKM Atiqur Rahman at his office in the Parliament Building here today.

Abu Zahar said Bangladesh had always respected the good bilateral ties that had existed between the two countries as they had learnt a lot from Malaysia, especially about the concept of Pilgrims Fund (Tabung Haji).

"Last year, they even sent several of their officers here to learn about the concept before implementing it in Bangladesh," he said.

During their meeting which lasted 45 minutes, Abu Zahar said he and Atiqur Rahman also discussed other issues concerning the two countries.

Atiqur Rahman has been the Bangladesh High Commissioner in Malaysia for over five years.
