Come on, it's simply a ridiculous idea. Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim should just scrap his idea of wanting all Malaysian women travelling out of the country alone to have a letter from parents or employers.
He shouldn't waste the time of his fellow Cabinet members with this proposal. What's there to stop someone from drug smuggling even if they are travelling with these letters? The proposal would only create more red tape and paper work. To put it simply, it is just not feasible. I am sure Dr Rais mean well as there are over 119 Malaysian women in prison worldwide for drug offences but why should women be singled out? What about single men travelling overseas alone?
