Corpses of two migrant workers are repatriated

The bodies of two Cambodian migrant workers were repatriated to the Kingdom from Thailand yesterday via the Poipet border checkpoint.

According to Poipet town commune chief Sin Namyoung, one of the men died after falling from a building on a construction site in Bangkok, while the other was stabbed to death in Chanthaburi province.

But details of both cases remained murky yesterday, with the Foreign Ministry unable to provide further information.

“The Thai authorities are investigating their cases,” Namyoung said, adding that he believed the stabbing incident was the result of some kind of dispute.

“[The police are investigating] who the suspects are that stabbed him, but first they have sent the body back to the family for a traditional funeral.”

The man who was stabbed to death is from Kampong Thom province, while the man who died from the fall is from Banteay Meanchey, Namyoung said. He could not provide further details about the two men except that they were both in their thirties.
