After reaching in Malaysia illegally, those people were joining various workplaces, he added.
‘The government is firmly committed to bring the human traffickers under the purview of law,’ minister said.
Khandker Mosharraf urged Bangladesh Association of International Recruiting Agencies to cooperate the government for identifying the syndicate recruiting agents.
He also urged the BAIRA leaders to stop trading of visas to reduce migration cost of the outbound workers.
