Paralyzed Pain in Malaysia, Migrant Worker from Sumedang Died
Atin Permana (24), an Indonesian migrant worker (PMI) from Cikaraha Hamlet, Bugel Village, Tomo District, Sumedang Regency, died in Malaysia. Atin was previously sick.
Previously Atin had fallen while working, resulting in paralysis. Since then Atin has been temporarily accommodated by his PMI colleagues in the Complex around Jalan Ipo Kuala Lumpur.
Head of Bugel Village, Asep said Atin's body had arrived at his residence after being delivered from one of the hospitals in Jakarta.
"Mrs. Atin's body arrived at 06.12 WIB at the funeral home using an ambulance from a hospital in Jakarta," Asep said, via text message on Monday (07/13/20/20).
He said that Atin's body was immediately buried in a funeral home by family and relatives in the Bugel Village TPU at 09.12 WIB. Atin's funeral was attended directly by the West Java Indonesian Migrant Workers Protection Agency (BP2MI).
Asep said Atin left her husband and one daughter who were still in elementary school.
Head of Placement and Employment Expansion Asep Rahmat said that Atin was previously known to have suffered paralysis due to stroke and was treated at Serdang Hospital, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
According to him the District Government of Sumedang through the Department of Manpower and Transmigration (Disnakertrans) has facilitated the return of Atin.
"The repatriation costs are borne by the Sumedang Regency Government through Baznas. Maybe because all the elements are moving and responsive so the process is not too long," said Asep.
According to him, Atin's employment status is included in non-procedural labor or not recorded at the Manpower and Transmigration Office Therefore, with an incident like this, he appealed to residents who want to work abroad to use official channels.
"The community has the right to work anywhere, including abroad. But we appeal to use official channels so that their protection is monitored by us," he said.(mud / mud)
