State working to return victims of hijack

THE Ministry of Foreign Affairs says it is still working with Thai authorities to repatriate 15 Cambodian fishermen, nearly two months after they were rescued from Somali pirates in the Gulf of Aden. “Until today we have not received more detailed information about the 15 Cambodian fishermen who were rescued from the Somalis’ hijacked boat,” ministry spokesman Koy Kuong said yesterday. “Our embassy in Bangkok is still working hard with Thai naval forces to find out [where they are] and to bring them back to their homes.” In November, the Thai fishing boat on which the 15 fishermen were working was hijacked by Somali pirates. The crew were picked up from Oman by a passing Thai vessel in November, but have yet to be located.
