120 Cambodian 'illegals' detained in Aranyaprathet

Para-military rangers and police yesterday rounded up 120 Cambodian immigrants without documents, who were hiding in the border market of Rong Kleu in Sa Kaeo's Aranyaprathet district.

The 102 men, 12 women and six children were rounded up from the area, known for being a pick-up point for illegal worker-trafficking gangs to transport workers to Bangkok and nearby provinces.

Following the arrest, the group was transferred to Sa Kaeo deputy immigration police chief Pol Lt-Colonel Benchapol Rodsawat for further interrogation before contacting the Cambodian immigration authority for their deportation.
