Malaysia has called stops on the recruitment of new foreign workers into the country, its government announced yesterday.

Domestic help or the maid sector are not involved in the decision, Malaysia’s Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamid says.

The decision will also close the country’s prior plan to recruit 1.5 Bangladeshi workers.

Those found guilty of protecting illegal workers will be whipped, the Deputy Prime Minister said.

"Whipping will be meted out by courts because the punishment with fine has no effect as employers and agents still keep bringing in illegal foreign workers," he explained.
