Leave voluntarily, illegal Filipino workers in M'sia advised

Philippine Labour Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz has advised illegal Filipino workers in Malaysia to seek assistance from its Overseas Labour Office and voluntarily leave the country, following the crackdown on undocumented foreign nationals, the Philippine Daily Inquirer reported Monday.

She stressed that those with complete and authentic immigration documents should not panic.

"Our office in Malaysia is ready to assist those who may not only have documentation problems but also problems arising from their work," the news portal reported her saying.

She also reminded Filipinos employed legally to always carry their work permits or passports with a valid visa with them, in case of spot immigration checks.

Citing reports from the Philippine Embassy, Baldoz said Malaysian authorities had indicated that those leaving voluntarily would not be prosecuted but would only have to pay fines for overstaying.

Those arrested will undergo deportation proceedings and will be detained for the time being.

The Malaysian home ministry launched the large-scale Ops 6P on January 21 to flush out illegal foreign workers.
