In what appears to be a massive blow to the rights of Malaysian workers, the Kuala Lumpur High Court ruled that Malaysia’s Industrial Court cannot hear the case of L Subramaniam, a former security guard allegedly unfairly sacked by the US Embassy without reason.

Previously, the Malaysian Industrial Court ordered the US Embassy to pay Subramaniam RM66,000.

The US Embassy then turned to the Malaysian civil court to quash the ruling. The US Embassy claims it has absolute immunity.

So, what does this mean for Malaysians working in foreign embassies? BFM speaks to S Arutchelvan, the deputy chairperson of the Socialist Party of Malaysia (PSM).
