Thai woman makes a swim for it to return home across the border

Thai media 77kaoded reported that a military border detail in Chiang Rai stopped a Thai woman from the north east who was drenched in water carrying an equally wet bag. 

 

She explained that she had crossed over to Myanmar illegally on July 27th but had been unable to get back by that route. 

 

So she took her chances swimming across the Mae Sai river that was swollen by flood waters. 

 

She made it but had had to pay someone on the Myanmar side 3,000 baht.

 

She was in possession of Thai ID and her name was Rasamee, aged 38.

 

She was handed over to immigration for prosecution for illegal entry and 14 day quarantining.

Thais can come back to Thailand through official border gates. She is just trying to avoid mandatory 14 days quarantine.

Yes, but she did cross illegally in to Burma, so she would have to explain that.  She gambled and lost.

I wonder what cost her 3000 baht - swimming lessons maybe?

I think it's ridiculous, preventing your own citizens from coming back

No one prevented her, just do it legally.
