BANGKOK — Nearly 200 asylum seekers from Vietnam and Cambodia face deportation and persecution back home, rights groups warned Thursday.


Human rights activist Pornpen Khongkachonkiet said 36 of 181 ethnic Montagnards have been charged with illegal entry at Nonthaburi Provincial Court and ordered to pay 5,000-baht fines. She said 22 are women – some with toddlers of 8 months – who would have their children taken away if they couldn’t pay the fine.

Here the Thai justice system shows its  ugly mug again: you do not have 5.000 THB, we take your toddler away. Disgusting!

So its ok for  usa, uk, most of europe, canada, oz to knock back and deport refugees but if thailand does it you are up in arms????

Typical expat bias and hatred
