I’ve only just caught up with this ABC 4 Corners program ‘A Journey into Hell’, screened two weeks ago.
Please watch it and think about the plight of the persecuted, unwanted, stateless Rohingya peoples, trafficked, sold, taken hostage for ransom (there already destitute families give what little they have and when the money runs out their loved ones are murdered), raped – often to death. This undercover investigation shows how Thai authorities are complicit in their trafficking from Burma and their suffering in Thai jungle camps. I’m trying to find out if our Government is doing anything to pressure the Thai Government to investigate their killings. And of course we should be offering sanctuary here, there is no question they are fleeing persecution.
