KUALA LUMPUR – Despite being viewed with cynicism, the unity government remains firm in its stance against abuse of power and corrupt practices, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Citing the government’s decision to stop the practice of hiring foreign workers using agents as an example, he said despite objections from a few stakeholders, measures to ensure that the workers involved are not abused will still continue.

He said the high cost imposed by agents affects the entry of foreign workers, when the country needs them in certain sectors, such as plantations and the food industry, including restaurants.

“We know that there are parties making high profits by imposing excessive additional costs, and by right, we should be seen as putting efforts to defend workers' rights and prevent any form of oppression, whether they are local workers or foreign workers.
