Petition to PM: Stop arresting undocumented migrants, focus on Covid-19

A group of more than 80 organisations, civil societies, associations as well as 71 individuals today sent Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin a petition urging him to stop the mass arrests of undocumented migrants.

“We, from the various organisations that have signed this petition, view the current approach of arresting and detaining undocumented migrants at this time as further complicating efforts to fight the pandemic among Malaysians,” the petition said, as read out by People’s Health Forum representative Lim Chee Han at a virtual press conference after the petition was submitted.
