Thai army rangers patrolling the Mekong River in the area of Chiang Khong, Chiang Rai picked up six suspects on Thursday.

 

All six were North Korean women aged 32 to 44 from a variety of cities.

 

They had paid a Laotian speedboat operator to whisk them across the river and like many of their compatriots hoped to apply for political asylum in Thailand and then be sent back to SOUTH Korea.

 

77kaoded reported that this business had gone quiet during the height of the pandemic but was now on the rise again with hundreds prepared to pay agents in Laos.

 

The suspects are now in the hands of Chiang Mai immigration.

There is no “pickle”.  These women face certain execution if returned to North Korea.  International law is clear in cases of this kind.  They must be given sanctuary in Thailand or another country willing to take them
