Between 2016 and 2020, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) looked into an average of 960 cases per year for kickback offences. Of these, about two-thirds are complaints lodged by migrant workers, one-third are referrals from the public, NGOs and public agencies, while a small number is detected by MOM’s inspections. Senior Minister of State for Manpower Koh Poh Koon gave this update in reply to an MP's questions in Parliament on Tuesday (Jul 27). He said MOM has stepped up engagement and education efforts about illegal recruitment activities.
