Indonesia is looking into banning Malaysians who mistreat Indonesian workers from entering their country.

According to a report by New Straits Times (NST), Indonesian ambassador to Malaysia, Hermono, shared that the embassy is currently in the process of blacklisting 5 Malaysians over alleged maltreatment of Indonesian workers and will ensure that their country disallows them from travelling there.

This comes after 2 Malaysians, Radzuan Abu Hadzim and his wife, Rosnajihah Ramli, were acquitted of human trafficking charges on December 9 (Friday). The duo had allegedly denied employing an Indonesian domestic worker and had refused to pay her salary, apparently owing her RM84,000.

They were initially looking at trafficking charges under Section 12 of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants Act 2007/22 (ATIPSOM).

Hermono added that the ban will not be enforced should the suspects face justice and pay up what is owed.

“Banning foreign citizens from entering our territory means that they are not welcome in our country, which is a common policy. Many Indonesians are also banned from entering Malaysia because they worked illegally in Malaysia and we don’t object to this policy as it is the sovereign right of the country,”

“There are other similar cases and the message is clear. We will not compromise with abusive employers,” he told NST.

He also shared that their country, just like any other, should protect its citizens and their interests.

“We can’t intervene in the legal process in Malaysia, as court proceedings are independent. However, if we believe that the court’s verdict did not provide justice to our citizens, then we are obliged to respond to it per our laws and regulations,” he explained.
