Thai arrested for smuggling seven Cambodians from Sa Kaew

Immigration police and provincial officials on Monday arrested a Thai woman for allegedly attempting to smuggle seven Cambodians from the border in Sa Kaew to Chon Buri.

Immigration police and provincial officials had set up a checkpoint on a side road in Sa Kaew’s Aranyaprathet district and spotted a pickup truck coming from a border area at 10am.
They stopped the pickup and found four Cambodian women and three men hidden inside.
The pickup driver, Nopparat Somsak, 47, was arrested.
She said she had collected Bt1,200 from each passenger to take them to Chon Buri.
The Cambodians did not have travelling documents, so they will face legal action and be deported.
Aranyaprathet district chief Saowanit Suriyakul said 7,207 Cambodians had been arrested in Sa Kaew for sneaking into the Kingdom and deported.
