Mum blames labour firm for sick daughter

The mother of a woman who says she was abused while working in Malaysia as a domestic help is demanding US$1,000 in compensation from the Cambodian labour recruitment firm that sent her abroad. Nun Phar says her 24-year-old daughter, Moeung Sophat, fell ill after being overworked while in Malaysia. Moeung Sophat returned to Cambodia last week after 11 months in Malaysia and is in hospital, and Nun Phar said yesterday that she plans to take her case to local rights groups if the situation isn’t resolved. Nun Phar said her daughter appeared pale and thin and no longer menstruated. Lao Lyhock, director of Philimore Cambodia, which sent Moeung Sophat abroad, declined to comment on Sunday. Philimore is one of nearly 30 firms licenced by the Ministry of Labour to train and send Cambodian workers overseas.
