Thailand deports over 100 Myanmar nationals in one week for illegal entry

Thai authorities reportedly deported over 100 Myanmar nationals in one week after arresting them for illegal entry by crossing Mae Sai creek.

Tachileik District Administration Office, Myanmar-Thai liaison officer U Tun said, “Thailand arrested these persons and took action against them for illegal entry into their country. They were deported back to Myanmar through Myanmar Immigration Department officials.”

Tachileik-Mae Sai friendship bridge No. 1 has been closed since March 23 in the wake of COVID-19.
