Malaysian Foreign and Home ministries came up with the idea in response to a string of cases where women travelling alone were used by international drug syndicates to smuggle drugs across borders. In 119 cases of Malaysian women being brought before foreign courts, about 90 percent were linked to drugs.
Malaysian government is considering requiring women to obtain the written consent of their families or employers before being allowed to travel alone outside the country.
Wah.. Our government should educate all travellers especially woman by advertising a big banner outside the airport,
“Woman – Do not drug trafficking” .. ha ha.
