Trio missing in Malaysia

A mother fears her son has died in Malaysia after not having heard from him for months, she said yesterday.

Som Oun is among one of three families from Stung Treng province to have raised concerns with human-rights group Adhoc this week after not being able to contact a family member working in Malaysia.

“I heard that he has died,” Oun said of her son, Kiev Meas, 20, who has been working in Malaysia for two and a half years.

Hou Somoul, Adhoc investigating official in Stung Treng province, said he received a complaint from the families yesterday and is working with anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection authorities to find them.

Sun Leang, director of anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection in Steng Treng, said he has forwarded the complaints to the Ministry of Interior.
