Chin Refugee Found Dead In Malaysia
16 November, 2009: The body of a Chin refugee, Mr. Nang Sian Mung, found dead on the cement last month is still in custody despite several attempts made for release by Chin communities and his boss in Malaysia.
There have been many speculations as to how the 21-year-old died in the middle of the night. One source claimed that he may have fallen from the 5th storey building.
A Tedim-Chin, Nang Sian Mung, came home with his friends around 2am on 16 October 2009, according to one source from the building.
Four people were arrested on Mung’s case by the police. After an investigation, two Chin refugees holding the UNHCR registration card were released and another two remain in custody merely due to having no refugee status documents.
“As far as we know, the body is still kept in the hospital but his [Nang Siang Mung] boss and the case worker keep on working in this matter,” said a representative of CRC (Chin Refugee Committee).
Nang Sian Mung, son of Thawng Za Khual and Dim Cingh from Pyidawta village, Kalaymyo, worked at night with four other friends.
