Battle not over for maids

Three maids from Pursat province were suffering from serious mental and medical conditions after returning from Malaysia, an Adhoc representative said yesterday.

Provincial Adhoc co-ordinator Phuong Sothea said he had filed a complaint with anti-human trafficking police last week after the maids’ families appealed to the NGO for help.

“We want the police to take action against the Oeng Ritthy recruitment agency to find out why these women became nervous and sick after returning,” he said.

Soun Ley, 19, could not walk, Ngim O’eab, 31, could neither speak nor walk, and I You Sos, 19, kept crying for medicine, Phuong Sothea said, appealing for doctors to provide treatment for them.

Forty complaints had been filed in Pursat province by various maids’ families since the beginning of the year, asking for help in finding them and bringing them back to Cambodia, he said.
