Human Trafficking in Penang

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 4:57 pm

Malaysia has been featured in international news more prominently lately as the US has

downgraded our country to the lowest ranking in its annual human trafficking report,

relegating this South-East Asian nation to the same category as Zimbabwe, North Korea

and Saudi Arabia. The move could result in economic sanctions and loss of development aid.

However Penang also has quite a number human trafficking hotspots.
