Tak Immigration police arrested 2 Chinese men who allegedly crossed the Thai-Myanmar border illegally. Border police tightened patrols after Myanmar reported a spike in Covid-19 cases in the past month, and even more so recently when a young Burmese child tested positive for the virus after arriving back to his home country from Tak’s Mae Sot district (in Northern Thailand).

Mae Sot villagers also stepped up to keep an eye out for migrants who might be crossing the border through natural passageways. They caught 31 year old Wang Yu Hai and 21 year old Ho Gun Chuan walking in a corn field by the district’s Ban Mae Taosan School. The migrants allegedly crossed the Moei River and entered Tak’s Mae Sot district.

Police, immigration officers and soldiers arrested the 2 Chinese nationals. Police say the men face legal charges.

    No point in barring arrivals by air if . . How many others were not caught?

    Why are Chinese trying to enter Thailand illegally? Are things really that bad in China?

    Shouldn’t it be “Snook” or “Sneaking” where did “Sneaked” come from please?

      I think the choice is between ‘snuck’ and ‘sneaked’. We actually did check before publishing and went for the latter instead of the former.
