Two workers who have just been recruited by VC Manpower Recruitment Agency to work in Malaysia have jumped from the second floor of a building to escape from what they called a "detention", before being sent to work in Malaysia, reports Koh Santepheap.

One escapee, 24 year old Leng Sok Leap, has sustained a spinal injury and was taken to Kossamak Hospital in Phnom Penh, while the other, 18 year-old Mom Phal, had reportedly escaped back to her hometown in Svay Rieng province.

Leng Sok Leap said she had been housed at VC Manpower headquarter in Phnom Penh for the last three months to study courses to become a maid in Malaysia. She said the condition inside the place was bad and there is no freedom to do anything or to go out. She said she decided to attempt to escape after the company repeatedly refused her permission to visit her child at home. She said the company had asked her to put a $1,000 bond before they would allow her to visit her child, a huge sum in Cambodia where workers only earn $50 per month.

Yesterday, officers from the Labour Ministry said they will visit the premises to investigate about the treatment of new recruits in the centre. And after inquiries, it is found that many new recruits were frustrated that it took too long for them to be confined in a small place with no freedom to go outside for 3-4 months. They appealed to the management of the company to speed up the process so they could be sent to work in Malaysia as soon as possible.

According to Koh Santepheap, this is the second that new recruits have escaped from VC Manpower's headquarter. One year ago, a number of new recruits have escaped from the centre which has alarmed the authority.
