Indonesian Ambassador to Brunei Darussalam, Sujatmiko appealed for Indonesian migrant workers who are in Brunei Darussalam to obey the laws and regulations applied by the local government. When opening a dialogue with the theme "Rules of Immigration, Employment and Human Trafficking in Brunei Darussalam" at the Indonesian Embassy in Bandar Seri Begawan on Sunday (18/7), Ambassador Sujatmiko stated that it’s necessary for Indonesian people, particularly Indonesian migrant workers, to understand and obey legal provisions in Brunei Darussalam. This reflects the success in working in the country.
Furthermore, Ambassador Sujatmiko also explained that the Indonesian Embassy will always remind Indonesian citizens in Brunei Darussalam to continuously obey the laws and regulations. He also shared the same dialogue when he met Indonesian citizens in Temburong and Tutong districts. The dialogue was also attended by hundreds of Indonesian people in Brunei Darussalam; most of them are migrant workers who are working in various sectors, such as seafarers, architects, consultants, chefs and home assistants.
The interest of Indonesian Embassy in providing information and socialization of protection for Indonesian citizens and Indonesian migrant workers is related to the various problems they face, such as cases of detention of workers whose contracts have expired, changing employers, and unpaid salaries.
The meeting of Ambassador Sujatmiko with Indonesian citizens and Indonesian migrant workers is a routine activity to help and accommodate them in Brunei Darussalam.
