Thailand must uphold international obligations in immigration enforcement operations

Index Number: ASA 39/9354/2018

Amnesty International writes to respectfully request that the Royal Thai Government ensures that its current immigration enforcement “Operation X-Ray Outlaw Foreigner” upholds and safeguards the human rights of migrants, refugees and people seeking international protection from persecution, in compliance with Thailand’s international human rights obligations. Amnesty International welcomes in this regard the release on 2 November 2018 of an estimated 100 children from detention in Suan Phlu Immigration Detention Centre, Bangkok. The organization continues to call on the government to address the ongoing absence of adequate procedural and legal guarantees for refugees and asylum-seekers.
