Malaysians held captive in Cambodia were abused, claims lawyer

The Malaysians held captive by criminal syndicates in Cambodia were abused, says the lawyer representing them.

Heng Zhi Li alleged the victims were threatened and physically harmed during their time spent forcibly working for the syndicates.

“Some were physically assaulted with one even being tased (using a stun gun) for attempting to get help from outsiders,” he told reporters at klia2 after the return of the 12 Malaysians.
