Thailand arrests more illegal migrants

Oct 30, 2010 4:51:09 AM - itnnews.lk

The Thai Authorities have arrested 100 more Sri Lankans who attempted to illegally migrate to Canada.

The Thai Authorities said that they were arrested while preparing to leave for Canada as asylum seekers with the help of racketeers who have links with the terrorists. Nearly 500 LTTE suspects who entered Canada in the MV Sun-Sea vessel with the Thai Flag, are still in the custody of the Canadian Authorities. The arrests made by the Thai Officials are a warning to racketeers who have links with terrorist groups. Canadian Minister of Migration Jason Kenney said that they would cooperate with Thailand to prevent human smuggling.
