Never Ending Influx of China Dolls


Every month or so we would hear of blitzes on KTVs and ‘health centres’ or ‘spas’ where authorities arrest Chinese nationals working as GROs or ‘masseuse’. It's getting too frequent now, these Chinese nationals is now called "China Dolls". The problem of trafficking China dolls or PRC (as they came to be known) in he country has been going on for years, if not decades, now and the upsurge in it’s rampancy is increasing year by year. Police statistics on the arrests of foreign prostitutes indicate those from China make up the most (50%) out of all other foreign prostitutes. After looking at the deplorable statistics, shouldn’t we be more rigorous at screening visitors to our country?

On top of the escalating inflow of African and South American criminals that are involved in counterfeit money and passports, thefts, drug trafficking among other offences, something drastic must be done by the immigration department to stop this incursion of foreign felons.


The China dolls are not really the ones to be blamed in some cases as there have been reports of these girls being duped into prostitution for promise of good paying jobs (as waitresses etc). These girls sort of have the same fate as the Bangladeshis who’ve been conned by bogus employment agencies into paying large sums of money for a promising ‘job opportunity’ in Malaysia. A group of these victimised labourers can be seen outside the Bangladesh Embassy in Jalan Damai (Ampang) in their dozens trying to get help on an almost daily basis. On top of that, they have their money lenders (usually families, relatives and/or friends) back home to answer to. I don’t know who’s worse off, the victimised China dolls or the cheated Bangladeshi labourers but both are left high and dry, trapped in a messed up situation. It’s this sense of hopelessness that could lead a person to take the easy option of committing crimes.


I think being too lenient in letting people in and out of the country is going to jeopardize the country and our people. Malaysia is already notorious among immigration departments in other countries for being a prevalent transit point for human and drug trafficking (as well as credit card frauds and counterfeit products) but I’m not that concerned about the country’s image. It’s the safety of the people that is of my most concern as well as being a pushover for foreign crooks. So come on immigration department, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get together with other authorities (police, Interpol, embassies and whatnots) to put a stop or at least reduce this ongoing predicament that could put our national security at stake.
