In Thailand, Few Signs of Success Against Trafficking
July 29, 2010

Koh Kred, Thailand. Sixteen-year-old Kaew slumped into unconsciousness in a van


somewhere in southern Thailand, believing she was on her way to work in a textile
factory near the border.

She woke up in Malaysia to discover that she had been sold into the sex trade.

Hers is just one of a multitude of cases of modern-day slavery in Thailand, most of


which involve a mix of poverty, violence and betrayal.

Apparently drugged and later locked in a room in Kuala Lumpur, Kaew met three
other Thai women who asked if she had been lured to work like them.
“I had no idea what they were talking about, but then they told me what kind of job
they did and what kind of job I had to do. I was very scared,” said Kaew, whose name
has been changed to protect her identity.

She managed to escape before her first job, using money she had been given to buy
food to take a taxi to the Thai embassy.

Now she is now being cared for at Baan Kredtrakarn, a government-run shelter just
outside Bangkok. But she can’t help thinking of the women she left behind — or her
abductors.

“I want them to be punished. I am very angry,” she said.

The US State Department last month put Thailand on its human trafficking watchlist,
accusing it of not doing enough to combat trafficking.

It said the country was a source, destination and transit point for trafficking, with
ethnic minorities and citizens of neighboring countries at particular risk of sexual
abuse or forced labor.

Victims — mainly from Burma, Cambodia and Laos — have been found in the
fishing industry, seafood factories, sweatshops and domestic work, while young girls
are also ensnared in Thailand’s vast sex industry.

They form part of a vast shadow economy across Asia that generates about 10 billion
dollars in yearly profits from forced laborers, mainly prostitutes, according to a 2005
report by the International Labor Organization.

It estimated there were 1.36 million trafficking-related victims in forced labor in the
Asia-Pacific region — more than half the global total.

Thai authorities are believed to have identified and helped 530 foreign victims of
trafficking last year and repatriated 79 Thai trafficking victims.

But experts say that is just the tip of the iceberg, partly because many victims do not
want to identify themselves by making a complaint.

“The fact is we just do not have an accurate understanding of the numbers for
Thailand, but we do know that the problem is significant,” said Allan Dow, an expert
at the ILO.

Thailand has said the United States report did not take into account its efforts to curb
trafficking. The country has introduced a scheme to register migrants to give them
legitimacy, and reached agreements with its neighbors to cooperate on tackling the
issue.

But experts said costly registration procedures, the risk of extortion by corrupt police
or civil servants and — in Burma’s case — fear of the authorities mean people often
shy away from going through legal channels.
Phil Robertson, Human Rights Watch’s deputy Asia director, said Thai officials
needed to recognize that trafficking “will stain their record” internationally.

“In the worse forms of exploitation that these migrant workers face, they are being
trafficked into situations where they may be held for months or years with no pay and
physical and sexual abuse,” he said.

With porous borders and a prosperous economy compared to some of its neighbors,
Thailand is a magnet for migration.

The challenges faced by authorities are huge, particularly as trafficking networks are
seldom more than loose connections.

Victims are often approached by acquaintances who promise lucrative work across
the border. When there is no way back, they find they have been duped.

That’s what happened to Bopha, a 40-year-old Cambodian woman who arranged a job
in a fish ball factory in Thailand through a broker. After more than a month, working
from 6 a.m. until at least midnight, she still had not been paid.

Workers were imprisoned inside the factory compound by high walls, barbed wire
and security cameras, and those who tried to escape were beaten.

“When I saw them hit people I thought, ‘we are all human — why do they have to do
this when we just came to work?’ ” said Bopha (name changed), who also managed to
escape.

HIV increasing among Burmese migrant workers, survey claims
July 30th, 2010

Min Taw Lawe, IMNA : According to the Pattanarak Foundation, a Thai non-
governmental organization, a recently conducted HIV survey in Thailand’s
Kanchanaburi province has revealed that 3% of the 300 Burmese migrant workers
tested were HIV-positive.

Testing for the survey took place from July 20th to July 26th, amongst 300 Burmese
workers in the VITA FOOD Factory in Tahmaka District, Kanchanburi province.
Medical professionals that conducted the exam informed IMNA that the survey’s
results indicate that HIV is on the rise in Thailand’s Burmese migrant worker
population.

“People are lacking in knowledge of HIV prevention education…None of them use


condoms when they have sex. That’s why it is easy to spread HIV virus among the
migrant workers,” a medic explained.

Sources speculated to IMNA that many Burmese migrant workers are afraid to get
tested for HIV, due to cultural prejudices against sex/HIV education. Naw Htoo from
Thailand’s Phamit2 program, claimed that survey takers had to rely on the VITA
FOOD factory manager to force unwilling workers to participate in the survey;
Burmese migrant workers frequently have tenuous legal status and must heed the
dictates of their employers.

“We had to negotiate with the factory authorities to test people in the factory,
otherwise no one would come and get tested. Only when the authorities said that they
would fire the ones who would not come, did people come to get tested,” Naw Htoo
explained.

The VITA FOOD factory work force is comprised of 15,000 people, but only 8,100
are Burmese workers with legal Thai work permits. Of these legal workers, 300
Burmese migrant workers were selected for testing. According to medic Saw Abow,
five women and four men were confirmed to be HIV-positive; an additional 10
people’s test results were unconfirmed, are still considered at risk for HIV.

He added that the Pattanarak Foundation plans to report the survey’s results to the
Thai Health Organization in Kanchanaburi in order to obtain antiretroviral drugs
for the HIV-positive patients in the VITA FOODS factory.

According to the Phamit2 project manager, the Pattanarak Foundation plans to


initially focus on HIV testing among migrant worker populations, and then move on
to testing for syphilis.

Saw Abow reported to IMNA that after conducting testing in three provinces –
Ubonrathani, Kanchanaburi, and Kalasin – Pattanarak medics confirmed 11,000
syphilis cases, signaling a serious need for sex/STI- related education in all three
regions.

The Pattanarak Foundation, which is run under the Phamit2 program, is supported by
Global Fund in its fight against HIV/AIDS and syphilis within disadvantaged
populations in Thailand. The foundation is also involved in community development,
culture heritage preservation, and environmental conservation.

Refugees Brace for More Raids as Malaysia Resumes Crackdown
31 July 2010 - PUTRAJAYA

The Malaysian government has revived a nationwide crackdown on illegal foreign


workers which has been put on hold for the last few months despite earlier indications
of plans to regularize undocumented migrants in the country.

The sudden decision announced by the Ministry of Home Affairs on 29 July put
refugees and migrant workers in shock as they are expected to face more raids from
Immigration Department and Rela.
Deputy Home Minister, Datuk Abu Seman Yusop in a press conference said, the
immigration detention centers are capable of coping with the increasing numbers of
detainees during the crackdown.

He said the Immigration Department has started enhancing its enforcement activities
beginning with a raid in Subang Township near Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday in
which 66 illegal workers were caught.

``During an operation at a furniture factory there, the company was found to have
hired eight foreign workers who have overstayed.

``They also engaged 10 foreign workers holding work permits for the plantation
sector, not manufacturing sector. And there were 48 foreign workers without any
documents at all,” he said.

Abu Seman also said the department has conducted 7,166 operations last year and
3,687 operations until June 30 this year.

Meanwhile, the Labor department came out with a statement saying 440,000 foreign
workers in Malaysia are not protected by insurance, which expose them to various
difficulties if they are involve in work place accidents.

Employers are obliged to buy insurance for their foreign workers under Malaysia Law.

Burmese Rank No. 1 in Malaysia Detention Center Deaths
By LAWI WENG Friday, July 30, 2010

Thirty-two Burmese detainees died while in custody in Immigration Detention Center


in Malaysia, the highest number of foreign detainee deaths, according to Malaysia's
minister of home affairs.

Minister of Home Affairs Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said a total of 78 foreign


detainees died during 2005 to 2009 in Immigration Detention Centers.

The foreign detainees included citizens from Burma, Indonesia, India, Bangladesh,
Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Nigeria, Togo, Pakistan, Liberia and the Philippines.
The minister did not attribute the cause of death among the detainees.

Speaking to The Irrawaddy on Thursday, Tenne Lee, a refugee coordinator from


Suara Rakyat Malaysia (SUARAM) who works on human rights issues in Malaysia,
said, “What we know about the cause of the deaths is that most of them died because
of medical reasons.”
Tenne Lee said that there is not adequate medical treatment while detainees are in
custody. Even if the detainees have medicine from a hospital when they enter a
detention center, the medicine is confiscated, she said.

“We do monitor things if we get information about deaths. We do pressure the


government, but we don't have power to do investigations,” she said. “It is hard to
know the exact number of deaths. The government is not accountable.”

According to a press release from the Malaysian Bar Council in 2009, 1,300
foreigners died in detention centers during the past six years.

Some Burmese human rights activists in Malaysia say that the number of detainee
deaths is much higher than acknowledged by the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Nai Roi Mon, who works with Mon detainees in Kuala Lumpur and is a member of
the Mon Refugee office in Malaysia, said: “I doubt their numbers. As I remember, at
least 100 Burmese died in detention centers during the past five years.”

He said that many of detainees died because they were denied medical treatment
when needed.

There are about 500,000 Burmese migrants in Malaysia, legally and illegally.
Burmese detainees are the largest group in detention centers.

There are 28 Immigration Detention Centers in Malaysia. Human rights advocates say
there are constant complaints of inadequate food, water and unsanitary conditions.
Detainees are not given clothing.

Advocates say that family members who try to bring cases to court are discouraged by
governmental delay. There has never been a successful case of prosecution for
negligence, said Tenne Lee. She said children are not separated from adults in
detention centers.

According to a 2009 SUARAM report titled “Malaysia Civil and Political Rights
Overview,” nine Burmese detainees died in detention centers from May to August last
year due to an outbreak of Leptospirosis (an infectious disease caused by
contaminated water or food which has been infected with rodent urine).

Human rights groups and civil society groups highlighted the outbreak of the disease
in detention centers, but they say the government has been slow to respond.

Malaysia is ranked as one of the worst countries for refugees by the international
watchdog, the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants. Malaysia also ranks
poorly among countries in meeting the minimum standards for the elimination of
human trafficking, according to the US State Department.

MYANMAR: NGOs cut programmes as government takes on recovery oversight
BANGKOK, 30 July 2010 (IRIN)

Funding shortages are forcing NGOs to cut operations in the Ayeyarwady Delta, as
the Myanmar government takes on oversight for recovery efforts two years after
Cyclone Nargis on 1 August.

"The need is enormous," said Prem Shukla, programme director in Myanmar for Plan
International. "Nargis is forgotten though."

Plan, which started work in Myanmar only after Nargis, will wrap up its work in June
2011, while Save the Children and the International Organization for Migration (IOM)
are cutting their operations.

Problems of food security, lack of shelter and livelihoods still plague people in the
Nargis-affected region, according to the Tripartite Core Group (TCG) report released
on 27 July.

The report found that 27 percent of families were food-insecure and livelihoods were
still not back to pre-cyclone levels. More than half of those surveyed said housing was
their most important concern. The total funding gap for all sectors in the post-Nargis
recovery effort is US$510 million, according to the Recovery Coordination Centre,
responsible for tracking Nargis aid.

The TCG - comprising the government, Southeast Asian nations and the UN - was
formed to build trust between Myanmar and the international aid community weeks
after Cyclone Nargis killed 140,000 and destroyed 752,299 homes in May 2008.

It completes its mandate on 31 July, leaving the Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief
and Resettlement to oversee recovery efforts. After two years of relief work, NGOs
expect the transition to go smoothly, but worry that projects may stall without donor
support.

"We need additional funding to continue the important recovery work that is still not
finished," said Andrew Kirkwood from Save the Children, which has one of the
largest presences in the region. "We have reduced the number of offices in the delta
from 14 to eight and the number of our staff in the Delta has reduced from 1,200 to
600 over the last six months."

IOM closed three of its delta shelter programmes in July and called the situation a
"tragedy".

"Despite the lack of basic shelter for up to one million inhabitants in the delta, urgent
and desperate calls for additional funding have gone for the most part unheeded,
resulting in the downscaling of many shelter programmes in the delta," said Nelson
Bosch, IOM recovery coordinator in Myanmar.

Bracing for the worst

Potential natural disasters worry groups such as World Vision, which is now shifting
to long-term projects. The organization reports a return to normality in areas of the
Nargis-affected region where it is working - the towns of Bogale, Pyapon, Hainggyi,
Dedaye and Kyaiklatt - but nonetheless, another weather-related crisis could be
disastrous.

"This year's long dry season was accompanied by very high temperatures, which
means the humanitarian community may need to be prepared for a possible water and
food security crisis in the coming year," said Win Zin Oo, humanitarian emergency
affairs director at World Vision Myanmar.

But despite the shortages, the biggest resource is the people involved. "The water is
there, the fish are in the water and the coconut trees are there," said Shukla, who has
overseen Plan's construction of 43 schools and 31 early childhood development
centres in the delta. "But the seeds were gone. First we needed to bridge the gap, and
now we need to turn it over to the community."

Thai Minister's Statement Spreads Fear in Camps
By ALEX ELLGEE Saturday, July 31, 2010

MAE SOT—Sitting on a mat in his small, well-decorated bamboo hut, Aung Htet
talks about his life and what forced his family to flee to Thailand for safety.

Like many refugees in the Burmese section at the refugee camp here, he was
sentenced to one of Burma’s notorious prisons as punishment for his involvement in
Burma’s democracy movement.

Released and re-arrested several times, he saw no future for his family. Constantly
harassed by the authorities, they finally fled to the border with hope of resettling in a
third country.

Until last month, Aung Htet, who spoke on condition his real name was not used, felt
relatively safe. His family had created a way of life in the camp, built relationships
with neighbors and found a way to endure resettlement delays that cast a shadow over
daily camp life.

However, their fragile existence was turned upside down when they recently heard
comments made by Thailand’s foreign minister, who was quoted by the Bangkok Post
as saying that Burmese refugees should return home after the elections.

“Before, we had some kind of hope that we can resettle and give a future to our
children,” Aung Htet told The Irrawaddy. “Now, we are not only worried about being
resettled, but we are more worried that we could be forced to go back to Burma.”

Since minister Kasit Piromya made the remarks, a degree of fear has spread among
refugees from Burma, and there is an increased sense of unease about the future.
Asked what would happen if he was sent back, Aung Htet said: “We cannot go back.
It is not an option with this regime.” He said political refugees are well known by
Burma’s military intelligence, and they are on blacklists.

“If we are sent back, they will just send us back to prisons for decades and our
children will have no future,” he said.

According to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners-Burma, there are more
than 2,100 political prisoners in Burma. Some observers have said that after the
election, a general amnesty for political refugees will be issued so that they can return
home without persecution. Sitting around a hut in Umpium camp, a group of refugees
told The Irrawaddy that they did not believe in such an amnesty and expected to face
punishment if they returned.

Saw Htoo's family had the same fears. When their village was suspected of supporting
the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA), their house was burnt to the ground,
and they fled to Thailand to find safety.

Sitting on a small stool, Saw Htoo said his family did not want to go to a third country
and wanted to stay in the camp until it is safe to go back to their village.

“The elections will not bring peace to Karen State,” he said. “It will not do anything
to help the Karen people. If they try to send us back, we will beg them not to.”

Recent news that elements of the Democratic Karen Buddhist Army (DKBA) had
rejected the regime's border guard force order has only confirmed Saw Htoo’s
concerns. Reports were entering the camps of heavy artillery fire in Burma, directed
at DKBA elements that rejected the order.

“If the SPDC attacks DKBA 907 battalion this week, then we will see all-out fighting
up and down the border. It is not going to be safe to return for a long time,” he said.

Around the same time in what was deemed an isolated event, Burmese troops burned
a village in northern Karen State close to the KNLA 5th Brigade. According to
sources on the border, Burmese troop displaced more than 500 villagers and killed
one medic.

A KNU statement said: “SPDC (State Peace and Development Council) troops
continue widespread human rights violations against the civilians in Karen State and
other Karen areas. This month, the human rights violations by the SPDC troops are on
the increase in Papun (Mu-draw), Kawkareik (Doo-pla-ya), Toungoo (Taw-oo),
Thaton (Doo-tha-htoo) and Nyaunglaybin (Kler-lwee-htu) Districts.”

The concerns of the international community would not deter Thailand from forcing
refugees to return home, said refugees. One Karen refugee said he believed Thailand
would do what it wanted in spite of opposition.

“If the Burmese government makes the elections, then this will give Thailand an
excuse to send us back,” he said. “They will find ways to break up the groups and
pressure us back. They are very clever.”
It would not be the first time Thailand has sent refugees back across the border in the
face of international criticism. In 2009, Thai authorities pushed endangered Burmese
Muslim Rohingya back out to sea, after they sought safety in Thai waters. In January,
more than 4,000 Hmong refugees were sent back to Laos against their will, including
158 UNHCR registered refugees who had been invited by third countries for
resettlement.

Also this year, more than 3,000 Karen refugees said they had no choice but to return
to Karen State despite their fears of landmines and the DKBA. Many refugees said
they could not take any more pressure from Thai security forces who urged them to
return home.

Another vulnerable group in the refugee camps is SPDC deserters. One refugee who
once held a senior position in the Burmese army said he was terrified that Thailand
would send him back.

“In their eyes [the junta], deserting from the army is the worst thing,” he said. “If I
was sent back, they would definitely give me a long prison term or the death sentence.

Many refugees saw repatriation as a “death sentence.” one group recalled a refugee
who could not take the stress of camp life and returned home. They said he was
immediately seized by Burmese intelligence and sentenced to more than 15 years
imprisonment.

A local refugee worker recently said that he did not believe the camps would be open
in 3 to 5 years, confirming many people's fears.

“We are now referring to this period as the end game,” he said. “If the refugees are
empowered to look after themselves then this doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but the
danger is funding will leave too quickly. We are already seeing projects being
withdrawn.”

One refugee said if they were allowed to go outside the camp and to work in Thailand,
it would make their lives much easier, and they would not have to rely on
international donors.

“In the camp now, we have no dignity. We exchange our dignity for rations,” said one
woman. “But we can only go back when free and fair elections have been held.”

Refugees fear post-election return to Burma
By AGENCE FRANCE-PRESS, 3 August 2010

Hla Hla Aye wept as she recalled leaving her son behind when she fled Burma a few
weeks ago – with three other children, she and her husband couldn’t carry them all to
safety.
Her family joined about 148,000 refugees from the military-ruled country living in
limbo in camps across the border in Thailand, most of whom fled civil war-torn
eastern villages.

But these newcomers have arrived at a time of growing uncertainty, with an upcoming
election in Burma fuelling talk in Thailand about sending the refugees back, despite
expectations that nothing will change in their homeland.

“If the government stays like this, the country will not become peaceful, it will get
worse,” said Hla Hla Aye, 28, as she breast-fed her baby in Mae La, the largest of
nine refugee camps along the border. “If people go back it is very, very dangerous for
them,” she added.

Caught up in Karen state’s six-decade conflict between Burma’s military and ethnic
rebels, who seek greater autonomy, Hla Hla Aye said her husband and other civilians
were beaten for refusing to work as porters for the state army.

“Soldiers beat him a lot on his back and his wrist. He was in a lot of pain,” she said.
“We didn’t dare to stay in the village, we kept having to run away… so we decided to
come here.”

While the camps have provided refuge for 25 years, Thailand’s National Security
Council chief Tawin Pleansri said their inhabitants would be sent back home “if
everything in Myanmar [Burma] is peaceful and orderly”.

“We have discussed repatriation, although we have not yet set a time frame, and we
consider that the situation is likely to improve after the election,” he told AFP.

Western countries have widely criticised the junta’s preparations for Burma’s first
elections in 20 years as a sham designed to shore up almost five decades of military
rule.

No date for the polls has yet been announced but the vote is expected in October or
November.

Activists warn that even the best-case scenario is unlikely to improve life in the
refugees’ rural homeland, which is expected to remain heavily militarised.

“The election, even if it is free and fair, won’t immediately change the situation in
terms of human rights abuses in eastern Burma,” said Matt Finch of the border-based
Karen Human Rights Group.

Vast numbers have fled to escape the junta’s counter-insurgency campaign, which
rights groups say deliberately targets civilians, driving them from their homes,
destroying villages and forcing them to work for the army.

Cases of rape, torture and execution by the military have also been documented by
rights campaigners.
While an ongoing resettlement programme has allowed tens of thousands of refugees
to move to third countries, an influx to the Thai camps of more than 1,000 people
each month means numbers have not dwindled.

Within Mae La camp, home to riverside bamboo huts and about 47,000 displaced
people, a bustling, town-like atmosphere belies the uncertain status of its residents.

Cheerful children sing folk songs in well-equipped classrooms and tear around
playing football in the monsoon season mud, while street-side stalls offer stylish
laptops, DVDs, handicrafts and even beauty treatments.

But an overall drop in assistance had begun to afflict the “very vulnerable” border
group, according to US Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and
Migration, Eric P. Schwartz, who visited Mae La in June.

He said he was “particularly concerned” for the refugees ahead of Burma’s poll, with
repression and restrictions in the unfolding electoral process unlikely to change their
need for protection.

Therefore “it will be critical for authorities (in Thailand) to continue to permit such
refuge,” he added.

Thailand sparked global anger in December when it used troops to forcibly repatriate
about 4,500 ethnic Hmong back to Laos, despite fears of persecution on their return
for their hill tribe’s US alliance during the Vietnam War.

The government is now cracking down on illegal immigrants, estimated to number


more than one million, most of whom are from Burma and allegedly face rights
abuses from a proxy state militia when they are deported.

While the majority in the camps have been registered as needing protection, 30
percent are yet to be screened and are therefore technically illegal migrants, according
to Sally Thompson of the Thailand Burma Border Consortium.

“There is a climate of… fear, doubt, as to what will be the future for the people in the
camps,” said Thompson, whose organisation is responsible for the refugees’ food and
shelter.

A UN Refugee Agency spokeswoman also stressed the need for efficient screening by
Thai authorities to weed out people who lack legitimate claims to protection, who
have been entering the camps with hopes of resettlement.

Registered camp dweller Cho Cho San, a pregnant 33-year-old who fled eastern
Burma early last year, said she struggled to feed her family on the food rations
provided and was worried about healthcare.

“This place is not the best place but it is better than Burma,” she said. “Even though
we have some difficulties, we can stay here in safety.”
