Two Myanmars held in raid (Star)

Two Myanmars held in raid

BUTTERWORTH: Two Myanmars hid in a fish container at a wet market in Bagan Ajam here hoping that they could escape a raid to flush out illegal workers.

Rela members opened the container’s lid and found the two, who were working at the construction site next to the market, had no travel documents.

The Myanmars, aged 19 and 25, were among 50 construction workers screened during the raid conducted by five Immigration enforcement officers and a 50-man Rela team led by Lt-Kol Abdul Rahman Harun.

The two were sent to the Juru detention centre while the rest were released as they had valid documents.
