The Royal Thai Navy seized a Thai fishing boat staffed with illegal migrant workers in Sattahip Bay.
A patrol boat found the Sor Manachaiwaree 3 about 20 nautical miles from Koh Chuang Dec. 6. An inspection found it was staffed with five Cambodians, none of which had identification, visas or work permits. All were taken into custody and the vessel taken to the Sattahip Naval Base.
The captain, 39-year-old Dang, and four crewmen aged 20-37, were charged with illegally entering and working in Thailand.
The boat’s owner, Lamul Samsri, 60, was summoned to face charges of harboring illegal aliens.
Five Cambodians, none of which had identification, visas or work permits, were found working aboard the Thai fishing vessel Sor Manachaiwaree 3.
