According to reports, the metal disposal factory's workers either had expired or non-existent documents

At least 88 Bangladeshi workers were arrested in Malaysia on Wednesday after the country’s Immigration Department raided a factory in Klang town.

Malaysian immigration chief Datuk Khairul Dzaimee Daud confirmed the matter and said the raid was conducted at around 11am local time, reports The Star.

A total of 229 workers with different nationalities were detained during the raid. 

“We arrested 229 suspects: 99 Indian nationals, 88 Bangladeshis, 33 Pakistanis, five Myanmar nationals, three Indonesians and one Nepali," Khairul Dzaimee said to the reporters, adding that the detainees were aged between 22 and 45 years old.

According to reports, the metal disposal factory's workers either had expired or non-existent documents.

"During inspections, several suspects tried to escape and hide among the piles of metal there,” Khairul said. 

"But all were successfully arrested. Among the immigration offences detected during the operation included overstaying, improper use of passes and not having valid documentation.”

“All those arrested will be sent for Covid-19 tests before being placed at the Semenyih depot,” he said.

According to Malaysia’s Immigration Department, the factory did not follow the movement control order standard operating procedures (SOPs) and the business was issued a MYR30,000 compound notice for SOP non-compliance.
