Kuala Lumpur, Mar.10 (ANI): Indian nationals staying illegally in Malaysia have been advised to take up the Governments limited time offer to return home.
A Malaysia Nanban report quoted Suhakam commissioner N. Siva Subramaniam as saying that the offer includes going home without being jailed and a reduction in fines.
In a press statement, Siva urged them to approach the Yayasan Strategik Sosial office at the MIC headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, the nearest Immigration or the state human resources department for help.
He said the Government would move to round up and arrest illegal workers after the offer expired, and they would then have to face legal action and might be jailed or fined with hefty penalties. (ANI)
