Indian Citizen Ms. Malini Subramaniam is a radiographer and among several others brought into Malaysia by a promise of a lucrative contract at a private hospital in Klang.

She had alleged that once she arrived her travel documents were removed from her and she was put to work ‘round the clock’ with no wages. The hospital also did not obtain a professional visa for her too which made her presence here illegal.

But she was among several from India, the Philippines, Indonesia, Pakistan who were in this dilemma.

CASSA took up her plight and the others with the relevant authorities.

The Malaysian government agencies notably the Home Ministry supported our efforts.

The Minister of Health declared the private hospital ‘illegal’ and further supported CASSA efforts.

In the beginning of last month Malini Subramaniam left for her home in South India.

Her plight made national headlines thanks to by Harian Metro, Malay Mail, Sin Chew, China Press, Nanyang and Screenshots!

But here we enclose her letter received at CASSA saying thank you to the many kind Malaysians who rallied to her assistance and support.

Malini writes:

‘I pay that all of you are well sir.

After I came to India things are very good. I applied for a new passport and I am back working at the old hospital I was before going to Malaysia. Only Sir, I lost my seniority and have to start at the beginning.

My parents saw all the paper cuttings by Harian Metro, Malay Mail, the Chinese Papers, Screenshots and they know what happened to me at Andalas Medical Centre in Klang. They are sad and shocked but happy that I am now safe.

But I want to say this to you sir Dr. Jacob George, brother Mr. Jeff Ooi, Subang Jaya and Shah Alam Sisters TV Dass and Puan Noor, Jenny Chew – all strangers but who came to my assistance and aid in Malaysia.

Sir Dr. Jacob George you did everything for me, took great risks of physical harm to protect me from the gangsters and pimps, took my case to the Malaysian government and safely sent me home.

I showed your photographs to my parents and the Indian authorities and they all are very surprised because you all look so simple but really helpful.

I have made a complaint at the Malaysian High Commission in Chennai but sir they are not taking this seriously.

Now I am happy and safe in India with my family and all the grades goes to you sir.

If any of you are coming to Chennai please contact me through CASSA and I will show you all around my country. Thank you. And May God Bless You All.

I am advised that there are several chargers been filed by the government against the operators of this unlicenced private hospital.

But the irony is that they are still operating without a licence!

Enforcement oficers from MOH are said to have detained a foreign doctor working at this establishment without an APC (Annual Practicing Certificate) issued by the government (MMC).

The most hit were Indian para medical workers and Indonesian doctors who resigned from good positions in India and Indonesia and had come to work here under torrid conditions and misrepresentations.

Here I also blame the the Indian/Indonesian Agents who facilitated the deal.
