Malaysia: Open Letter to The Editor, New Straits Times
In this open letter Amnesty International reiterates its objection to caning and whipping in all circumstances. This follows a statement by the Immigration Department, reported in the paper, that only those who entered the country illegally were subject to being caned or flogged, as provided by the country's immigration law. The organization calls for the Malaysian authorities to abolish caning and whipping and review the laws, policies and practices governing the treatment of both documented and undocumented migrant workers.
