    Bangkok ceases sending Karens back home

    REPATRIATION OF KARENS
    Bangkok ceases sending Karens back home


    Thailand decided on Friday to halt the repatriation of more than 3,000 ethnic Karens to Burma following protests by human rights groups and US lawmakers who said they were being forced to return against their will.

    Foreign Ministry's deputy spokesman Thani Thongpakdi said "there is some concern, we have decided to halt the process until the Karens clarify their position. We want to dispel any concerns that their return would not be on a voluntary basis."

    Earlier Friday, 12 Karens in three families voluntarily returned to Burma before the process was stopped, Thani said. Embassies and civil society groups sent representatives to the Thai-Burmese border to observe the procedure, he said.
