3. It is ILLEGAL for foreign workers to work in fields other than the one stated in their work visa. 

 

4. Foreign workers have dominated various areas in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.

5. Some of them already obtained permanent residency in Malaysia.

In an operation, Mustafa Ali discovered that 12 foreigners have already obtained permanent residency in Malaysia.

“Maybe they’ve stayed in Malaysia for a very long time, and have fulfilled the requirements, but there were also cases where the application of permanent residency and the issuing of relevant documents were done in different offices of National Registration Department, and these are the cases that we need to look into,” Mustafa Ali said.

 

6. There are suspicious marriages between foreign workers and local women.

Many Pakistanis married local women are now enjoying similar privileges entitled for Malaysians.

“Certain marriages are highly suspicious as local woman of age between 68 and 75 were reported to have married with a Pakistani man of age between 32 and 35. Did the man really marry the woman out of love, or he has some other motives such as doing business, getting a freehold unit or permanent residency in Malaysia?” Mustafa commented. 

 

7. They have taken over businesses from the locals in Kelantan.

“Locals are renting out their shop lots to them, especially grocery stores. Some even let them take care of the business,” Mustafa added.
