MAS' long and winding road of restructuring

Emotional vulnerability of migrant workers

Riots by Nepali migrant workers broke out at the JB and Kulaijaya plants of an electronic manufacturer. The first incident took place on Friday night, and was appeased upon the mediation by the Nepali embassy. A second incident, in fact a more serious one, erupted barely three days later in Kulaijaya.


The ball is now in Pakatan Rakyat's court

The decision of Pakatan Rakyat, or PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, will decide whether the crisis will be ended, or evolve into a greater storm.
