Let government negotiate release of Malaysians detained in Cambodia – Fatimah

KUCHING, Leave it to the Malaysian authorities to negotiate the release of the 47 Malaysians arrested and jailed in Cambodia, said state Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development Minister Datuk Sri Fatimah Abdullah.

“There was no need for the hoo-ha as it might affect the on-going government-to-government negotiations for the release of the detainees,” she said.

The 47 Malaysians (37 male and 10 female) have been detained in Cambodia since December 11 last year on suspicion of running an illegal gambling operation there.
