Pakistani asylum seekers set to be deported

Immigration police have rounded up 100 Pakistani asylum seekers who have overstayed their visas or lack any visa. They claim their Christian religious beliefs make it dangerous for them to return to Pakistan.

Acting Immigration Police chief Maj-General Surachate Hakparn ordered checks of Soi Charansanitwong 12 in Bangkok’s Bangkok Yai district yesterday (Wednesday).

Surachate told a press conference that 52 Pakistanis were arrested on charges of overstaying visas and five others for having entered the Kingdom without a visa. The police said they had also arrested 43 Pakistani children.

He said all would be blacklisted and deported.
