Md Rayhan will be expelled after investigations completed – Immigration DG

PUTRAJAYA, The Bangladeshi man, identified as Md Rayhan Kabir who appeared in the controversial Al Jazeera documentary Locked Up in Malaysia’s Lockdown, will be expelled from Malaysia once all investigations are completed said Immigration Department director-general Datuk Khairul Dzaimee Daud.


“I cannot estimate when (Md Rayhan will be repatriated) but the earliest flight to Bangladesh will be on Aug 31,” he told a press conference here today.


Md Rayhan was arrested in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur on July 24 after the Immigration Department sought the assistance of the people to track down the individual who appeared in Al Jazeera documentary.




In the documentary, Md Rayhan commented on the treatment of illegal immigrants by the Malaysian authorities when the country was implementing the Movement Control Order (MCO) to eradicate COVID-19.


Khairul Dzaimee said that Md Rayhan’s temporary visitor’s pass was also revoked and he would be blacklisted from ever coming to Malaysia again.
