KUALA LUMPUR – The Ministry of Home Affairs (KDN) has revealed that many reports on human trafficking by international or local media on the social media were not true.
Its secretary-general, Datuk Seri Alwi Ibrahim said enforcement agencies such as the Royal Malaysian Police and the National Registration Department would conduct investigations when they received such reports, but most of them were false reports.
“The KDN is not in a denial syndrome, but if there is valid proof on the case, the ministry will take action in accordance with the provisions of the law, including under the Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants Act,” he said when appearing as a guest on “Landskap” programme, titled “Policy and Enforcement of Anti-Trafficking in Persons” on TV1 last night.
Alwi said members of the public with information or human trafficking should lodged a report on the matter or call KDN at telephone number 03-80008000. – BERNAMA
