Migrant Care Asks Task Forces to Investigate TKI in Malaysia

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Migrant Care’s policy analyst Wahyu Susilo suggests the government to establish a task force to investigate cases of Indonesian migrant workers (TKI) overseas. There are currently only two permanent task forces in Indonesian embassies in Malaysia and Singapore.

“There are only ad hoc agencies in other countries,” said Wahyu on Wednesday.

According to Wahyu, the task force consists of three agencies, which are The Foreign Ministry, the Manpower Ministry and the Agency for the Placement and Protection of Indonesian Migrant Workers so that through investigation can be conducted.

Migrant Worker and the task forces in Indonesian embassy in Malaysia are investigating Meriance Kabu, a TKI from Kupang who was tortured by her employer at Pandan Jaya Flat in Ampang, Selangor, Malaysia.

Based on the information received by Tempo, Meriance experienced severe mistreatment. Her employer, Ong Su Ping, punched and kicked her. Meriance was also lashed, electrocuted and stabbed in her genitalia using wood.

Ong Su Ping even pulled Meriance’s molar tooth using pliers and forced her to eat her own feces. Ong Su Ping is now being detained in Ampang police station.
