Detained Cambodian labourer set free

One Cambodian man who was detained for allegedly working illegally in Malaysia has been freed, Cambodian authorities reported yesterday. Koy Kuong, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said the labourer had lost legally obtained documents allowing him to work in Malaysia and failed to inform authorities. Malaysian officials arrested 74 Cambodian nationals in Johor province January 1. Koy Kuong said the Malaysian government would repatriate the rest, pending decisions by Malaysian courts. 49 Cambodians have not been fined and 25 have been put under investigation, he said.
