It is shocking to find out that about 1,300 human beings, who are
foreign nationals, died in custody over just the last SIX years...

ABOUT 1,300 illegal foreigners have died during detention in the
past six years, Malaysia Nanban quoted Malaysian Human Rights
(Suhakam) commissioner Datuk N. Siva Subramaniam as saying.

He said many of them died in immigration detention centres,
prisons and police lockups because they were denied medical treatment
at the right time.

He proposed that a doctor and a medical assistant be appointed in
each detention camp and prison which should have the necessary
facilities to transfer sick prisoners to hospitals during an emergency.

He said detention camps now have appointed doctors who make
regular visits.

He also said that Suhakam had submitted a memorandum to the
Government proposing the appointment of a doctor to visit police
stations to monitor the health of suspects held in lockups. - Star,
18/12/2008 - 1,300 foreign detainees died due to neglect

No human being is 'illegal' - they may have come in and/or remained in
Malaysia without the required documentation but let us not forget that
we are dealing with human beings.

Really, we must be given more information as to how they died - were
they beaten to death? Were the conditions of the detention centers the
main factor that brought about their early death?

Was there any INQUESTS (Inquiry into the deaths) done to determine
whether there was any criminality involved in the death? Was it
because of negligence?

The numbers are really shocking - and mind you this fact has been
revealed by SUHAKAM.

Let Malaysia not forget to its obligations to these 'undocumented'
migrant workers, as is laid out in the Bangkok Declaration.
