A campaign to legalize Cambodian migrant workers in Thailand could be repeated in Malaysia if it proves successful, the Labor Minister has said.

Ith Samheng announced on Tuesday that the government will send 360 officials to Thailand to implement a 100-day campaign to give illegal migrant workers proper documents.

If the Thailand initiative is successful, Mr Samheng said the government will consider doing the same for illegal workers in Malaysia, where he said many people are cheated into working without documents by unscrupulous brokers.
