A ship belonging to the Myanmar Navy is bringing more than a hundred undocumented Myanmar migrant workers back home from Malaysia, announced state-run TV recently.
102 workers who were detained in Malaysia for working illegally will arrive in Myanmar on March 29 aboard the Mahar Thihathura.
The ship will take the workers home after participating in the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition 2015 from March 17 to 21 in Malaysia.
The workers were jailed in detention centers in Malaysia after they were arrested by Malaysian police and could not afford their return fares, although they have already attained their C of I certificates to go back.
