Shocking video clips have emerged of several men in uniform employing brutal and inhumane tactics on migrant workers believed to be under quarantine for Covid-19.

MalaysiaNow has not been able to confirm the authenticity of the short clips which have been shared on messaging apps as well as on social media.

In one video, a man in uniform is seen forcing a worker to roll on the grass while brandishing what looks like a rubber hose.

Another video shows two men beating a worker using a rubber hose and a stick.

Nepal-based migrant worker rights activist Andy Hall, who has knowledge about the clips, told MalaysiaNow that both incidents happened in Meru, Klang.

This comes on the heels of an investigation launched by Negeri Sembilan police yesterday over a video clip showing a man in a blue police uniform repeatedly kicking one of several men sitting on the side of a road.

Seremban police chief Mohd Said Ibrahim was quoted as saying that investigations showed the incident took place in Senawang.

Hall meanwhile claimed the detained men in the video were among several workers from a local Top Glove factory.

He said the workers in the video had been discharged after being treated at the Seremban Hospital and were outside the hospital when the incident took place.

He added that a worker who caught the incident on camera was now “scared to talk to anyone, even us”.

Hall further claimed that some workers had tried to sneak out, fearing for their safety.

Top Glove, the world’s largest glove maker, has been at the centre of a Covid-19 infection spike in recent days, forcing it to shut down its factories nationwide amid criticism from rights groups. The company has not responded to queries from MalaysiaNow.

MalaysiaNow is meanwhile awaiting a response from the police as well as the armed forces.

Police and armed forces have been mobilised to implement the conditional movement control order which came into force in large parts of the country, following a fierce wave of infections that pushed the total number of Covid-19 patients to more than 67,000 since the pandemic was first detected in Malaysia.
