14 Cambodian workers return home after being freed

4 July 2014 (NNT) – Fourteen Cambodian migrant workers have been freed from a prison in Sa Kaeo province after they were imprisoned for holding counterfeit work permits.

The 14 men have been transported to a Cambodian immigration checkpoint near the border after they were arrested last month while fleeing Thailand amid a mass exodus of other workers.

Cambodian officials and army officers received the workers at the border where they are reunited with their family and friends.

The release came just days after Cambodian authorities granted a royal pardon to a convicted Thai activist Veera Somkwamkid during a visit from the Permanent-Secretary for Foreign Affairs Sihasak Phuangketkeow.
