Description
Phnom Penh, 11 June 2014 – The Cambodian Human Rights and Development Association (ADHOC) is gravely concerned at witness reports to ADHOC investigators of the killing of up to nine Cambodian migrants and the beating of another by the Thai armed forces as part of the Thai military junta’s campaign to expel illegal migrants working in the country. This vicious campaign has seen thousands of Cambodians packed into trucks like animals and forcibly returned to Cambodia. Returnees have reported violent raids on houses where illegal immigrants are suspected of residing and incidences of the tearing up of documentation entitling Cambodians to work legally in the country. ADHOC will continue to investigate these claims.
