No Extension For 3 + 1 & Rehiring Programmes After Dec 31 – Malaysia Immigration DG

Pleas to extend the 3-plus-1 and rehiring programme introduced by the Immigration department for foreign workers will not be entertained when it ends on Dec 31 2017. Director-general Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali stressed employers or immigrants working in the country should not wait until its too late.

“I’m stressing again that there will not be any extension and enforcement will be carried out forcefully to detain those who failed to register,” he said after attending the department’s monthly assembly here today.

This is how the department did to the Enforcement Card or E-card registration programme which was not extended when it expired on June 30, he said.

He stressed ‘Ops Mega’ which was carried out to track down and detain employers and illegal workers who failed to obtain the E-card, will be continued everyday even after Dec 31.

“We will not stop until we register every foreign worker in the country,” he added.

Employers and foreign workers who wished to stay on work in Malaysia must take the registration drive seriously.

“They (illegal foreign workers) must know the consequences of being detained and sent back. Foreign workers will be blacklisted from returning to the country again,” he added.

The rehiring programme was introduced last year when the government had decided to stop the recruitment of new foreign workers.

Illegal foreign workers however can seek to get themselves legalised under the programme which began on Feb 15 2016.

The 3-plus-1 programme, on the other hand is a voluntarily surrendering of illegal workers.

Those who surrendered would be charged a penalty of RM400 instead of paying up to RM5,000 if they were caught by the authorities, Mustafar said.

“Under our 3-Plus-1 programme, they will need to pay a fine of RM400, then buy an air ticket and return to their countries of origin.

“They will also be given a blacklist period which can be up to five years from entering Malaysia,” he added.

Mustafar also said he would meeting the Chief Justice and representatives from Attorney-general Chamber to impose stricter penalties for employers and illegal workers.

Malaysia Detains Illegal Immigrants In Raid On ‘Bangla Market’ In Kuala Lumpur

The Malaysian authorities have detained more Bangladeshis in a drive on a market at Jalan Silang in Kuala Lumpur conducted as part of the ongoing crackdown on illegal immigrants.

The market is known as ‘Bangla Market’ as it is frequented mostly by Bangladeshi workers living in Kuala Lumpur.

A Bangladeshi businessman in the area said the number of detained Bangladeshis would be 50 to 60, including some women.

Malaysian departments of immigration and customs and Kula Lumpur City Corporation jointly conducted the raid for around two and a half hours from 12pm on Saturday.

Kota Roya Bangladeshi Traders’ Association President Rashed Badal told bdnews24.com that the authorities checked whether the businesses at the market were following the laws.

“They have warned us against employing illegal immigrants,” he said.

“They detained 50 to 60 Bangladeshi customers during the drive,” he added.

The Bangladesh High Commission in Kuala Lumpur, however, could not confirm how many Bangladeshis were detained in the raid.

Crackdown on illegal immigrants
bangla_market_kl_raidbangla_market_kl_raid

After hundreds of Bangladeshis were detained in the crackdown on illegal immigrants in Malaysia last month, Bangladesh Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Nurul Islam said on July 16 that “Malaysia has suspended the crackdown because of the Bangladesh government’s initiative.”

Bangladeshis made up nearly half of the 1,035 foreign nationals detained on July 1, the first day of Malaysia’s crackdown on illegal immigration, according to the local media.

The detainees did not have the necessary enforcement card (e-card) or permits for temporary residence or work, authorities said.

Malaysia’s immigration department had accepted applications for e-cards for four months until Jun 30.

During this time, 26,957 companies applied for e-cards for 155,650 workers from 15 countries.

The majority of applicants were Bangladeshis totalling 71,903.

The Bangladesh High Commission earlier said the e-card grants permission to stay until Feb 15 next year.

This means that those without a valid passport or permission to work may stay and work in Malaysia until Feb 14.

It is possible for the foreign nationals with e-cards to obtain passports and travel documents from their embassies for a new work permit within that time.

Malaysian authorities have warned that those who stay past the deadline will be deported.

According to The Sun Daily, over 600,000 illegal immigrants live in Malaysia, and only 23 percent of them have received e-cards.

Malaysia Illegal Foreign Worker Issue Needs Intervention

The announcement by the Malaysia Immigration Department on Tuesday that it would freeze the assets and bank accounts of employers hiring illegal foreign workers has been described as costly and complicated for the business community. This description indicates the severity and unpopularity of this latest decision among business owners. Among the key economic sectors to be affected most by this decision could be plantations, construction, service and manufacturing.

datuk_mustafar_ali

Technically, there is full employment for Malaysians and there is definitely a shortage of labour.

To be enforced next month, this Immigration Department decision has stirred up a huge furore among almost all trade groups, including the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers and the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (ACCCIM).

It seems like a hasty and harsh move threatening to shatter the private sector that has helped the country to build up its economy.

Business operators feel that it is the country’s economy that stands to lose if the decision is not reversed.

“There is a necessity for foreign workers in our country, but the system to hire legal workers is costly and complicated,” said lawyer Michael Chai, deputy secretary general II of the ACCCIM.

“The way to resolve it is not to throw a nuclear bomb at the industry.”

Datuk Michael Kang, president of the SME Association of Malaysia, told Nanyang Siang Pau that about 80% of local SMEs will be wiped out if this decision is enforced as almost 80% of local SMEs hire illegal foreigners.

There are about 650,000 SMEs in the country and they form more than 90% of the companies registered in Malaysia.

Kang told The Star: “The Government should legalise all illegal workers. All legal and illegal workers should go for fingerprint imaging so as to monitor them.”

The issue of foreign workers is an age-old problem plaguing the country.

The Government wants Malaysia to be free of illegal immigrants by 2020 and aims to bring down the percentage of foreign labour in the workforce to 15%.
According to ACCCIM deputy secretary-general I Tan Sri Teo Chiang Kok, illegal labourers in Malaysia now total 3.5 million compared with Malaysia’s total population of more than 30 million.

Teo said if the system for the industries to bring in legal foreign workers was easy, the issue of illegal labour would have to be solved “once and for all”.

If we look back, the Government has rolled out many measures to tackle the problem.

Fresh in our minds are the 6P Programme, the “whitening” of illegal migrant workers, and the suspension of recruitment of all foreign workers (which has since been lifted for manufacturing, construction, plantation and furniture-making industries).

With this latest announcement by Immigration, it is clear that the illegal labour issue has yet to be resolved.

The Immigration Department’s decision is yet another knee-jerk policy that only treats the symptoms but not the root cause of the problem, according to Teo, who is involved in property development.

“A lot of times the Government is just putting obstacles and using threatening methods (on us). This is not the way to address the pro­blem,” he said at an ACCCIM press conference on Thursday.

Industry players say they always prefer local and legal workers, given the option.

If the Government’s strategy is to push employers to hire more locals, the current unemployment rate of 3.3% is technically considered full employment.

“This means that there are just not enough local workers to meet the labour demand in our economy,” said Teo.

Indeed, this may not be the right time for the Government to push hard for automation as many SMEs are not prepared amid weak economic conditions.

datuk-ter-leong-yapAccording to the latest survey conducted by ACCCIM on the economic situation of Malaysia for the first half of the year, a total of 14.1% of the respondents were eager to give automation a try to address the difficulty in hiring foreign labour.

However, they said capital shortage, lack of technical know-how and the limitation of a small market in Malaysia were obstacles.

“I believe one day our country will move towards that direction, but we seriously require time.

“We need a good blueprint on the foreign labour scheme for us to have a smooth transition,” said ACCCIM president Datuk Ter Leong Yap.

But above all these, lawyers have cast doubt on the legality of the Immigration Department’s move to freeze assets.

The Immigration Act 1959/63, the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act (AMLA) 2001 and Passports Act 1966 have been cited to grant such legal powers to the department.

But as Chai correctly pointed out: “People who have power to exercise this ‘nuclear weapon’ have great responsibility. They cannot announce something without clarification.”

Perhaps top policy decision makers of the country will have to interfere in this latest initiative by the Immigration Department. They have to put right what is damaging to the country’s economy.

Nur Jazlan Ahmad announced on 17 sub-sectors in the services sector have been given flexibility to hire illegals foreign workers in malaysia

The 17 sub-sectors which are given flexibility are shops, theme parks, dhoby, barber, wholesale and retail businesses, textile business, goldsmith, welfare homes, workshop general worker, car wash general worker, market general worker, petrol station mart general worker, hypermarket general worker, mining, mangrove or logging forest, warehouses and cargo at ports.

“Other than giving chance to illegals to work in the sectors, it is also to ease the burden of employers looking for foreign workers,” he told a media conference in Putrajaya today.

Earlier, Nur Jazlan held a meeting with 22 industry and worker association representatives related to the management of foreign workers at the ministry.

He said two service sub-sectors were still not exempted, namely, used items and airport cargo handling on security grounds.

In the meantime, he stressed that illegals who surrendered to the authorities would only be compounded RM300 and given a RM100 special pass to enable them to return home without prosecution.

“The privilege is given due to the government’s concern as the festive season is around the corner. So, those who want to return home must first surrender to the authorities,” said Nur Jazlan.

On an Immigration Department-led operation which ended on May 29, the deputy minister said 25,350 illegals and 529 employers were detained. Of the total number of employers, 34 were charged for various immigration-related offences.

He said to date, the programme to hire illegal immigrants had registered 111,410 illegals, and hoped the number would continue to go up before ending on June 30.

Illegal Foreign Workers Rehiring Programme Revised To June 30 Due To Poor Response

Rehiring program updates: The rehiring of illegals foreign worker programme deadline has been revised to Dec 31 2017 due to the poor response from employers. The Home Ministry in a statement said the deadline has been shortened as employers were not responsive to the programme.

“Based on our studies, although the programme has been implemented for almost a month with massive enforcement operations conducted by the Immigration Department, the programme is still at unsatisfactory level as many employers were found to hire illegal foreigners.

“Therefore, the employers are urged to take this opportunity to take part in the programme to enable their illegal foreign workers to obtain valid work permit.

“The government will not hesitate to take legal action against employers who hire illegal foreigners in line with Section 55 (B) of Immigration Act 1959/63,” it said in a statement.

Under the act, those who hire illegal workers are liable to a maximum RM50,000 fine, a maximum jail term of 12 months, or both, for each illegal employee.

In addition, any employers who hire more than five illegal workers will be jailed between six months and five years, and receive up to six strokes of the rotan, if convicted.

The ministry said a total of 15,822 foreign workers were registered under the rehiring programme from Feb 15 to March 10. From the total number, 9,738 were Indonesians, 3,808 Bangladeshis, 425 from Myanmar and 1,851 were from other countries.

Foreign Workers Found Without Valid Papers During Joint Operation At Wholesale Market

A TOTAL of 72 foreign workers were detained for not possessing valid documents during a joint operation at the Kuala Lumpur wholesale market. The operation by 77 officers from Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), Kuala Lumpur Immigration Department and the police conducted checks on foreign workers’ travel documents, working permits as well as United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) cards.

illegal_workers_founding

Foreigners who were found without valid documents being gathered at the entrance of the Kuala Lumpur wholesale market for further checks.

DBKL Licence and Petty Traders Management Department senior assistant director Saiful Mazli said DBKL would continue to have such operations in the future to better monitor the foreign workers in the market.

“This is part of our efforts to better manage the market and monitor the foreign workers.

“We want to ensure all foreigners working here are registered but this will take some time,” he said, adding that the large population of foreigners here contributed to the problem.

“There are fewer foreign workers here today and I see some improvement.

“We hope the wholesalers here will give us their cooperation and abide by the law.

“It is also the employer’s responsibility to check the travel documents of their foreign workers frequently,” Saiful said, adding that they might conduct similar operations at least twice a week.

StarMetro reported yesterday that foreigners without a tag and uniform would not be permitted to enter the market.

Only those in colour-coded uniforms and tags worn by wholesalers and their registered foreign workers will be allowed into the market, besides local customers.

During the operation, StarMetro noticed that there were workers who did not wear the uniforms and tags.

Foreign workers who did not wear the uniforms or tags and those caught without possessing any valid working or travel documents were taken to the entrance of the market for further checks.

Kuala Lumpur Immigration Department representative Muhamad Faisal Abu Bakar, who led the operation, said some of them were suspected to have falsified their work permits and travel documents.

“We also found some of them had misused their working permit, did not have proper identification or their travelling period here had expired.

“The detained foreign workers were brought to the lock-up at the Immigration Department at Jalan Duta for further investigation and action will be taken accordingly if they were found breaking the law,” he said.

Out of the 122 foreign workers who were round-up at the market entrance, 50 were released after their documents were verified.

Some of the wholesalers who witnessed the entire operation said they supported the action by the authorities.

Local vegetable seller Elaine Shum, 43, said DBKL should conduct such operations once in a while to keep the foreign workers in check.

“Sometimes, there are just too many foreign workers here.

“I have seen foreign workers fighting with each other and I suspect they are not registered workers.

“This paints a bad image to some of the foreign workers who are really hardworking,” she said.

She added that the operation was timely as it was done during off-peak hours.

“We get busy around 3pm and we need the foreign workers to help,” she said.

Another vegetable seller, Lim Chee Leong, 33, said the operation would act as a warning to other unregistered foreigners operating here.

“It is good that they weed out the unregistered foreign workers.

“I hope this will scare off those selling vegetables at the parking lot as it affects our business here,” he said.

“As a result, six food outlets were issued with compound notices up to a maximum of RM1,000 for violating the MPSJ Food Establishment Licensing By-Law 2007,” an MPSJ spokesperson told theSun when contacted.
