KUALA LUMPUR: Some 20 human rights activists protested against a controversial refugee swap deal to be signed between Malaysia and Australia.
Touted by both governments as a measure against human trafficking, the apparent one-time agreement would witness an exchange of refugees between the two countries.
Malaysia would receive 800 refugees held by the Australians, while the latter would resttle 4,000 refugees currently residing in Malaysia.
The plan however met with fierce opposition in both countries, with some citing a lack of transparency.
