Chinese national cheated, detained and threatened by repatriation agents

Posted by on November 18, 2011 in News, News Flash

The Yawning Bread blog has a story of a Chinese worker cheated of 27,000 yuan (approx S$ 5,400). Arriving here only to find that the job he was offered was non-existent, he was then wrongfully detained by repatriation agents who became menacing when he wanted to leave for the Ministry of Manpower to lodge a complaint. Jolovan Wham of HOME was instrumental in obtaining his freedom. Yawning Bread is run by TWC2 Treasurer Alex Au in his personal capacity.
