According to the article, the level of awareness on the issue of anti trafficking in humans among society in Malaysia is very low. This happen since they do not have much informations and knowledge regarding this matter and they do not see this issue in broader point of view.
Suhakam had came out with the statistic of the 2009 rate of trafficking of humans especially among women, young teenage girls and children. About 1083 people had to be rescued.
