Unreported World reveals shocking evidence that Burmese refugees fleeing the country's brutal military regime are being detained and then allegedly sold by Malaysian immigration officials to Thai human traffickers.

Reporter Aidan Hartley and Director George Waldrum travel to Kuala Lumpur to highlight how the refugees are forced to exchange one hellish existence for another. Living in complete fear of the state, the refugees claim they are being rounded up and subjected to bloody whippings and imprisonment in detention camps. As Unreported World reveals, for some this is just the beginning of a horrific journey into the trafficking network, where men, women and children disappear into a world of slavery and prostitution.

"...Every half-hour [Unreported World] episode is a miniature masterpiece, outlining a desperate situation in swift, sure strokes, and last night's Refugees for Sale was no exception….Another fine portrait of an ugly beast from Unreported World."
-The Guardian
