PUTRAJAYA: The Human Resources Ministry has refuted reports that the Cabinet disagrees the report by the Independent Committee on the Management of Foreign Workers and its subsequent suggestion to make it public.
“No such decision has been made so far,” the ministry said in a statement yesterday.
A news portal on Thursday reported that the committee, which was formed in August last year and headed by former Appeal Court Judge Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Yunus, was not ready to disclose its findings to the public.
Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran had been reported as saying that foreign workers’ wage policy and the right to justice were among the seven suggested clusters in the report.
Among the other clusters are national policy, policies on deportation and recruitment, policy on illegal workers, stateless residents and refugees. — Bernama
