Suspects deported from Thailand

Thai authorities have deported 38 Cambodian migrant workers suspected of drug-trafficking and robbery, an NGO official said Tuesday.
Hour Ngy, coordinator of the Health Care Centre for Children in Koh Kong province, said Thai authorities escorted the group of Cambodian workers to the Cham Yeam border gate, where they were dropped off. “Our staff members brought the labourers to the healthcare centre to spend the night,” he said, and “some admitted to trafficking drugs, while others claimed they did nothing wrong”.
