21 elderly women from Yala feared arrested in 


VILLAGERS from Yaha district in Yala have asked the Thai government for help in contacting 21 elderly women who were allegedly duped into working in Malaysia without proper documents and are now feared to be under arrest.

Mamakadi Sulong said his 57-year-old mother Hamida Salae and 20 neighbours were invited by a local labour broker to work in Johor. He said he has not heard from them since they travelled in cars to cross the border in Sadao in Songhkla on September 24. 
He said relatives feared that Hamida and the others may have been arrested by Malaysian police as they did not have proper work permits. They urged Thai state agencies to help them locate the group.
