Quick Summary AI Powered

Malaysia has been slammed by Indonesian rights groups for causing the deaths of 149 Indonesian nationals who were allegedly treated inhumanely while held at detention facilities in Tawau, Sabah over the past 18 months.

Between January and March of 2022, there were supposedly 18 deaths.

Allegedly, during a scabies outbreak, the detainees had asked the immigration officers for medication, but were told in a derisory tone to scratch their itches.
