Thailand: Concerns about treatment of Burmese refugees

, N° d'index: ASA 39/015/1991

This paper summarizes Amnesty International's concerns about the arrest, detention and, in some cases, forcible return to Myanmar of Burmese asylum- seekers in Thailand. Several instances of ill-treatment of detained Burmese refugees are quoted, including one incident which resulted in the death of Min Thein, a detained refugee who was shot by police while trying to escape. The findings presented in this report are based on first-hand testimonies given during detailed interviews of Burmese refugees conducted June and July 1991.
