Illegal injured after falling in attempt to escape immigration raid

PETALING JAYA (24/08/2017): In a desperate attempt to avoid capture, an illegal immigrant fashioned a rope out of blankets to climb down from the first floor balcony of her flat.
Unfortunately, she did not get a soft landing and was found moaning in pain on the ground floor at the Lagoon Perdana Apartment blocks.
It is learnt that the 30-year-old woman did not have valid travel documents.
The woman, who has been working as a maid, had climbed down the balcony on the advice of her cleaner husband, an eKad holder.
It is believed that they have been in Malaysia for about a year. The couple have two young children in Bangladesh and shared the flat with four other Bangladeshi workers employed as cleaners and plumbers.
The woman is believed to have injured her pelvic bone in the fall and was taken to the University Malaya Medical Centre.
In Wednesday night's operation at the apartment block and commercial area, Immigration officers rounded up over 160 illegal immigrants. Many of them were found without proper travel documents.
At a press conference, Immigration director-general Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali said over 10,000 illegals have been caught in the nationwide operation since the beginning of July after the eKad registration deadline ends.
"We also took action against 246 employers who hired illegal immigrants," he said.
Out of the 10,000, over 2,700 illegals have been taken to court.
"We also plan to improve the special courts hearing illegal immigration cases to expedite repatriation or other actions," he said.
He also warned local businesses not to allow illegals to use their premises.
"In one of our raids, we found a laundromat acting as a front for a vice ring frequented by immigrants," he said.
Mustafar said such outlets would be shut down permanently.
