Forced Labor in Malaysia - Modern Slavery?

Two major global electronic brands, Samsung and Panasonic, has been accused of mistreating foreign migrant workers in one of their factories in Port Klang. The abuse was brought to light by a series of articles published by the Guardian last month. This has raised multiple concerns over the management of migrant workers in Malaysia.

BFM explores the current condition of migrant workers in Malaysia, and how are they exposed to such abuse and exploitation.

This is a report by Emir Zainul.
