Officials from Thailand’s Ranong Immigration Department handed over 103 migrant workers — 86 men, 16 women, and one child — to Myanmar authorities on Wednesday evening at the Kawthoung border gate.
The migrant workers were repatriated to Myanmar after they were found with expired visas and without proper documents, prompting Thai authorities to initiate legal action against them.
Officials from the Kawthoung District and Township General Administration Department, Labour, Immigration and Population Department, Anti-Trafficking in person Police Force, Labour Department, and Disaster Management Department received the migrant workers. After the Township Public Health Department provided the necessary medical care to the workers, they were sent back to their native towns. —Kyaw Soe (Kawthoung)
