The 16 Malaysians who were duped by lucrative job offers in Cambodia were abused with electric shocks and forced to work as scammers without any salary.

The victims, 12 of whom were repatriated on Tuesday (Apr 12) morning, were also beaten and slapped, said their lawyer.

Heng Zhi Li, who represents the 15 men and one woman, said the victims had left for Cambodia in stages between September 2021 and February this year after they were allegedly promised a salary of RM7,000 (US$1,650).
