23 Rohingya rescued from human trafficking operation in Tak

Police and troopers rescued 23 Rohingya, a stateless Muslim minority that predominantly lives in Myanmar, from a human tracking ring based out of two locations within the northern Thai province of Tak. The rescue happened yesterday.
The operation is a result of the police determining that human traffickers had smuggled a number of Rohingya from the Myanmar border into Thailand. At one location, police discovered 20 Rohingya, which consisted of sixteen women and 4 males, at a house in the Ban Mae Tao Klang community. Then, at another location on Islam Bamrung Road, police found 3 Rohingya, this time 2 women and 1 man, as well as a sixty one yr outdated suspect recognized only as Muhammad, who police arrested.
In Frenzy of the investigation, Muhammad allegedly confessed that he had offered housing to the 23 Rohingya who allegedly, illegally entered Thailand. The suspect provides that Burmese human traffickers had transported the 23 individuals to the accommodations prior to taking them to their last vacation spot in Malaysia.
Police charged Muhammad with permitting immigrants to remain in Thailand and enabling them to escape arrest. He was then taken to investigation officers for additional authorized proceedings.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has described the Rohingya as one of the most discriminated folks on the earth. A 12 months prior to Sunday’s rescue, 12 Rohingya have been arrested in Tak for illegal entry..
