Remains Of Those Smuggled For Trafficking Discovered In Thailand Make It Worst In This Context

A single male survivor besides more than 30 graves with remains of humans  is all that could be recovered from a detention camp in south Thailand. The survivor is not said to be in the pink of his health. The ordeal has been quite heavy on the man believed to be from Burma.

The camp is in the Sadao district of Songkhla province. The location of the camp had been revealed by a suspect, as per a police official. The area is notorious for human-trafficking, although the suspect's involvement in human trafficking is not clear.

A thorough investigation of all the 30-40 graves in the vicinity of the detention camp revealed the advanced stage of decay some bodies are in. The detention camp is located on the borders of Malaysia and Thailand.

The bodies may have been in the grave for a long time. There is no way their identities or nationalities could be established. A team of forensic experts from Bangkok is to explore the matter at hand.

The dead bodies in the graves are said to be of Rohingya Mulims hailing from Myanmar or Bangladesh. Many are believed to have died because of starvation or due to infection from a deadly disease while in captivity awaiting the ransom being paid.

While quite a few copses were found in graves, others were found in the open covered only by a blanket or any other piece of cloth.

Trafficking of humans is quite a common phenomenon in Thailand. It has gone beyond the control of officials in Thailand. In its Trafficking in Persons report, the US Department gave Thailand the worst ranking it ever could --- tier 3. Thailand is believed to be  a potent source, destination and transit point for human trafficking.
