The families of two maids working in Malaysia asked Preah Vihear’s anti-human trafficking office and the human rights group Adhoc yesterday to intervene on behalf of their daughters, whom they haven’t seen or heard from since last year, officials said.
Lor Chan, Adhoc coordinator for Preah Vihear, said the parents had asked him to help get the maids home.
“They did not file a complaint with us, but they need our help to do something to bring their daughters back,” he said.
Chan Monor, 28, said he had tried to contact T&P Co – the recruitment firm that sent his sister to Malaysia – but it was closed.
‘‘We do not know whether she is fine or having problems,” he said.
Prang Thida, chief of the Preah Vihear provincial anti-human trafficking office, said she had met the families.
“I told them we will discuss with our officials how, or whether, we can help them, because when they went to work in Malaysia they did not inform us, so it is difficult for us,” she said.
