Thai nationals leave country after pardon

THREE Thai nationals released from prison in Siem Reap on Monday after being granted a royal pardon returned to Thailand yesterday, Cambodian border officials said. Touch Ra, deputy director of the Cambodia-Thailand Border Relations Office at the Choam Sa-Ngam border checkpoint in Oddar Meanchey province, said the men were welcomed at the border by family members and Thai officials at around 1pm yesterday. “They travelled by car from Phnom Penh and Thai embassy officials also accompanied them on the trip,” Touch Ra said. The three were arrested and jailed for crossing illegally into Cambodia in August.
