TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - An Indonesian non-profit organization named Migrant Care condemned shooting of three Indonesian migrant workers from East Nusa Tenggara in Malaysia in January 11. It has urged the government to take diplomatic steps such as sending protest note to the Malaysian government, downgrading diplomatic relations by withdrawing ambassador of Indonesia for Malaysia and declaring persona non grata upon ambassador of Malaysia for Indonesia, and urging the government to fulfill the rights of the victims and their family.

"And also to take investigative steps, as well as to solve this case through legal proceeding," Migrant Care Executive Director, Anis Hidayah, said in a written statement received by Tempo on Monday, January 20, 2014.

Migrant Care also urged the Malaysian government to immediately take responsibility of the shooting and investigate this case as well as other unsolved cases of shootings by the Royal Malaysia Police. "The Malaysian government must stop the killing of Indonesian migrant workers," Anis said.

Anis also urged other institutions to investigate this case. "We urged the National Commission of Human Rights, Suhakam Malaysia, and the House of Representatives to take investigative steps on this case," Anis said.

Three Indonesian migrant workers were shot dead by the Royal Malaysian Police in January 11. The victims are Wahab, 30, Sudarsono, 30, and Gusti Randa, 35. According to Consuler Chief of Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in Johor Baru Malaysia, Sri Nirmala, the three migrant workers were shot dead after fighting the police when they were inspecting illegal migrant workers.
