UN condemns Thailand for deporting third Cambodian refugee

The United Nations refugee agency has condemned Thailand for deporting a third Cambodian refugee in two weeks, after a former female politician was sent back to a Phnom Penh jail.

Thavry Lanh – who represented the now dissolved Cambodian opposition party at district government level and was a vocal critic of Prime Minister Hun Sen’s government – fled to Thailand more than four years ago.

Thai immigration officers arrested her on Friday (Nov 19) in an eastern border town and she was sent to Cambodia the next day.
