Prawit Wongsuwan

 

Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan has asked the Army and other agencies to strictly monitor border crossings and industries for any illegal migrant workers as they could spread Covid-19 to Thais.

 

Prawit’s spokeman Lt-General Kongcheep Tantawanich said the deputy PM instructed the Internal Security Operations Command, the Army, police, and the Labour Ministry to deal with illegal migrant workers at borders areas as well as inside the country.

 

He also wanted migrant labourers in each industry to be checked.

 

Kongcheep said more illegal workers were found after the lockdown was lifted.

 

The Army has also been asked to coordinate with the border troops of neighbouring countries, especially Myanmar and Cambodia, to tackle the problem.

 

At the same time, police have been ordered to crack down on illegal migrants and networks transporting them from the borders to cities.

We've had illegals here since doomsday....how can they be spreading a disease if there have been no cases in the past 6 weeks? Surely we would have seen some evidence by now? What an idiot this man is. Surely the worst in the government.

Maybe a problem.

 

Indonesia not control covid.

Maybe a problem.

I guess he is talking about new illegal immigrants, not the ones already inside Thailand.

Isn't there a civilian department that is supposed to do that. Say, the department of immigration.

It's not immigration's job to protect the borders, but this is done by border patrol police. But many checkpoints near borders are manned by the army.
