Since March 11th, about 2,000 ethnic Karen civilians have fled the fighting in Myanmar, to take refuge in the border areas of Mae Sariang and Khun Yuam districts in Thailand’s northernmost province of Mae Hong Son, but most have now returned to Myanmar voluntarily, according to Mae Hong Son Governor Sitthichai Chindaluang on Tuesday.

 

He said that troops from the Naresuan Task Force, which is responsible for security in the border areas in his province, have been deployed to look after the fleeing Karens.

 

The governor claims that the troops have convinced most of the Karens to return to their own country, while the few remaining are expected to return in the next few days.

BANGKOK, March 30 (TNA) – Thai security officials were handling nearly 2,000 refugees who fled violent attacks in Myanmar to the Salawin National Park in Mae Hong Son province.

 

Jatuporn Buruspat, permanent secretary of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, said park rangers asked security and administrative officials to handle the people who were taking refuge in the national park. Local authorities earlier planned procedures to handle the refugees.

 

Mr Jatuporn said that officials of his ministry were maintaining order in the park and seriously implementing measures to control COVID-19 there as instructed by Natural Resources and Environment Minister Varawut Silpa-archa.

...under duress" most likely.  It's quiet obvious that Thailand understand the work "humanitarian".  The compassion in "Compassionate Buddhism" doesn't extend outside the walls of their temples.

Regardless of what various Thai leaders are saying, Internationally the news services are reporting that refugees are being pushed back across the borders.
