INDONESIA BAN ITS MAIDS FROM COMING TO WORK IN MALAYSIA

Labels:
MALAYSIA said on Monday that Indonesia's 'emotional' decision to ban its nationals from coming here to work as domestic helpers was linked to the upcoming presidential elections.
  • Angry over the latest case of maid abuse, Indonesia last week said it would stop sending domestic helpers to Malaysia at least until a mid-July meeting in Kuala Lumpur to discuss a new migrant worker agreement.
  • Malaysian Human Resources Minister S. Subramaniam said the abuse cases had become an issue in Indonesia due to the upcoming July 8 presidential elections, which president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is tipped to win.
  • 'They are facing an election so some issues like this become very emotional at this time. After the elections, things might change,' Mr Subramaniam told AFP.
  • 'But if this ban continues, we will have to look at other markets,' he said, adding that the government is recruiting maids from other countries, including Muslims from the southern Philippines.
  • A group representing maid agencies has reportedly said that between 50,000 and 60,000 Filipino Muslim maids could be hired to fill the void following Indonesia's temporary ban.
  • 'We welcome the Muslim Filipino maids,' Mr Subramaniam said.
  • 'Filipino maids can come here according to the terms and conditions which their country has already signed with us, so whether it is Muslim or Christian, they can be hired to fill any gaps.'
