Abused Cambodian maids return home after bad experience in Malaysia

The Cambodian embassy in Malaysia and an NGO recently helped return two housemaids to the Kingdom after one alleged she was denied her salary for years and the other claimed she was consistently abused and beaten by their employer.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation spokesman Koy Kuong told The Post on Monday (Oct 5) that due to the intervention from the embassy and Phnom Penh-based NGO Chab Dai Coalition, Nguon Van, 31, and El Mary, 32, were safely repatriated to the Kingdom on Sunday evening.

Kuong said: “By this time, they would have safely reached their respective homes.”
