Staff Reporter

It focused on the condition of workers from Tamil Nadu, who went to Malaysia for making a better livelihood and instead suffered there like slaves.

Aarvalan of Viduthalai Chiruthaigal, who went to Malaysia on a one-man fact finding mission, said that Tamils had been vilified as anti-socials and were mostly victims in encounter deaths.
