UNHCR to help settle Rohingya

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) would coordinate with related parties to move some Rohingya refugees in Thailand on a voluntary basis to a third country, initially set as the United States.

The information was revealed during the UNHCR Thailand officials’ visit yesterday to a shelter in Nakhon Si Thammarat’s Hua Sai district to provide 90 distressed Rohingya people there with commodity items as well as toys and education tools.

In related news, Hua Sai Police yesterday summoned Rohingya representatives, as the damaged party in human trafficking, to identify five cars used to transport them.

The Rohingya people were rescued earlier this month while being transported in Nakhon Si Thammarat, but one woman died in the crowded conditions.

The provincial court earlier issued arrest warrants for three human-trafficker suspects identified as Sawat Phadungchat, Warachai Chadathong and Suriya Yodrak.
