Migrant worker missing

A 58-year-old woman filed a complaint with local rights group Adhoc yesterday, asking for help in locating and returning her 21-year-old daughter who she has not heard from since she left to work in Malaysia in December 2010.  Ream Phal said that she decided to seek intervention from Adhoc after a company, Top Manpower Recruitment Agency, told her that one of her daughters had gone missing. She also claimed that the company was uncooperative. “The company told me that they would stop helping me to look for my daughter, and would let rights group do it instead,” she said. A staff member at Top Manpower Recruitment declined to comment.
