Malaysia in US human trafficking list

from Associated Press

The Obama administration has faulted Malaysia for failing to do enough to stop the sexual and forced labor exploitation of women and children.

The State Department's annual "Trafficking in Persons Report" on Tuesday put the Southeast Asian country on its list of top trafficking offenders. Repeat offenders on that list include North Korea, Myanmar and Fiji.

Countries cited for failing to take adequate steps to address trafficking can be subject to limited sanctions.

The report also expresses worry about a worsening trafficking record in the Philippines, Cambodia, Bangladesh and Pakistan.

These countries have been dropped to the State Department's "watch list" of second-to-worse offenders, joining China, India and Sri Lanka.


*Najib sure duno want put face at where 1. I bet Malaysia will submit a protest note to the US State Dept. Lolx.
