Naval officers, from the Mekong River patrol unit, and local officials, rounded up 58 illegal migrant workers from Laos at a riverside resort in Khong Chiam district of Thailand’s Northeastern province of Ubon Ratchathani today (Monday). 

 

A Thai driver, identified as Pornthep, was also apprehended. Pornthep reportedly told the officials that he was hired by a man, with whom he is acquainted, and paid 3,000 baht to smuggle the illegal migrants from the resort to Bangkok and surrounding provinces to work.

 

The Laotians were reported to have told the officials that they each paid 5,000 baht to a broker, who offered them jobs and arranged for a gang to smuggle them across the Mekong River into Thailand.

So lets follow the trail and find out who this "acquaintance" is and know who is trafficking illegal migrants?
