Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam), wants police to put in place a better screening and identification system to spot victims of human trafficking at 'trafficking hotspots'.
"Police officers have to be trained to ask proper questions. Often, girls caught are treated as offenders rather than victims at immigration depots, detention centres and prisons," said Suhakam commissioner Raj Abdul Karim.
She was speaking at press conference after a two-day workshop for the development for the Asean forum protocol against the trafficking of women and children in Kuala Lumpur.
