Missing in Malaysia: Father says concerns fell on deaf ears

The father of an 18-year-old girl who he said had been missing in Malaysia for more than a year, has filed a complaint with the rights group Adhoc against the labour firm that sent her there.

Minh Ngi, 46, from Preah Vihear province, said yesterday the Philimore recruitment agency had not contacted him since promising to put him in touch with his daughter, Sun Sreyroth, six months ago.

“I heard that house owners mistreated housemaids and some others died in Malaysia. We are very concerned after hearing such information.”

His daughter had not sent any remittances, as she was expected to, increasing his concern, Minh Ngi said.

“My family is poor. My wife just gave birth to another baby, and we rely on our daughter to send her salary to support us,’’ he said.

Lor Chann, Adhoc’s Preah Vihear provincial co-ordinator, said Sun Sreyroth had gone to Malaysia on August 8 last year from the Siem Reap International Airport.

Philimore president Lao Ly Hok could not be reached for comment, but a staff member who declined to be named said she was unaware of the case.
