    There are hundreds of thousands of foreign maids working in Malaysia and almost 85 per cent of them come from neighbouring Indonesia.

    But the Indonesia government has banned its citizens from travelling to Malaysia to work as domestic helpers after repeated stories of maids being exploited and abused.

    Jakarta has also called for more regulation from the Malaysian government to protect the workers' rights.
