Thousands of migrants, asylum-seekers and refugees are routinely arrested and kept in filthy and overcrowded conditions in detention centres across Malaysia. Once in the centres, detainees lack proper health care, sufficient food and clean drinking water. Children under 18 are held with adults, and abuse by detention staff is rife. Amnesty International urges the Malaysian government to recognize, respect and promote the human rights of migrants, asylum-seekers and refugees in Malaysia.
