Cambodian maids entering Malaysia despite ban

Domestic workers believed still travelling to country, despite ban by Phnom Penh after reports of abuse.

    At least 60,000 Cambodian women work in Malaysia as domestic helpers.

    Last year, the Cambodian government banned women from travelling to work there because of increasing reports of abuse.

    Tola Moeun, who has worked extensively with abused maids, believes that Cambodian women are still arriving in Malaysia to work, often through third countries.
