Thailand: Imminent risk of deportation of Cambodian and Vietnamese UNHCR-recognised refugees
Amnesty International calls on Thai authorities not to deport UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) recognised refugees from Cambodia and Viet Nam, who would be at real risk of persecution if returned to their countries. Labour activist and opposition political supporter Sam Sokha and Montagnard pastor A Ga and his family are believed to be at imminent risk of being forcibly returned in violation of Thailand’s obligations under international law, including the principle of non-refoulement. Amnesty International calls on the Royal Thai Government to provide both the UNHCR-recognised refugees effective and durable protection.
