Tackling Modern Slavery

Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim has reiterated the government's commitment to protecting the rights of Indonesian migrant workers in Malaysia. How badly are some Malaysian companies or recruitment agencies treating migrant workers? Zenna Law and two co-founders are now running what they claim to be the first ethical foreign labour recruitment agency called Pinkcollar.

We explore what she has been doing to tackle the issue of modern slavery in Malaysia.
