YANGON (Xinhua) – A total of 100 illegal Myanmar migrant workers detained in Thailand have been repatriated to homeland under the arrangement of the two countries’ authorities.

According to the Global New Light of Myanmar, the Myanmar migrant workers including 18 women returned to Kawthoung, Kayin state by boat through Ranong, Thailand on Wednesday.

The migrant workers, from Tanintharyi, Yangon, Bago and Magway regions and Mon, Rakhine and Chin states, were brought back to their homes after being scrutinised to ensure they are free of drug, non-link to terrorism, non-involvement in making counterfeit kyat notes, non-carriage of weapons or explosive materials and non-criminals, the report said.
