CHONBURI – June 13, 2014, [Pattaya Daily News]: At 11 hours yesterday, the police investigated about 500 migrant workers who gathered together around the harbor on a bus bound side of Pattaya on Sukhumvit Road. It was found that most of migrants are Cambodian from Chonburi, Sriracha, and Rayong provinces and they were all fleeing back to their hometown. They hired a vehicle back for THB 1500 to THB 2,000 each. It was also found that some of them do have legal passports whereas others do not. However, all of them were arrested by the police and will be prosecuted accordingly.

 

One of the Cambodian revealed that he was afraid of being prosecuted and hence was fleeing back to his origin. However, he is planning to return when a country itself will be opened for ASEAN countries.

 

The issue has also become a major concern for the real estate owner as one of them revealed that due to these migrant workers fleeing back to their origin, the construction businesses are severely affected and had to stop operating.

 

All the migrants are now taken to the Chonburi City hall by the officials for further checking on the documents. The coordination has also been made to the immigration office for the workers to be sent back to their hometown if found illegally migrated into a country.
