In Brief: Ministry defends Cambodian Embassy

The Foreign Ministry shot back at criticism from a Cambodian NGO that accused Cambodian embassy officials in Malaysia of turning their backs on a family of six Cambodians who found themselves in legal limbo after losing their jobs.The ministry said that, despite a lack of cooperation from the family, the embassy was still able to ensure their return to Cambodia. "If the Cambodian embassy did not pay attention and help them, how could these people have returned to Cambodia? They would surely have been condemned over illegal immigration in Malaysia," a recent press release said. Ya Navuth, the executive director of CARAM - the NGO critical of embassy - said on Sunday it was CARAM's efforts, not the government's, that helped the family return home.
