THAILAND – 181 Christian Refugees still Detained by Thailand Authorities
International Christian Concern | Nov. 6, 2018
It has been over two months since Thai authorities have arrested and detained over 181 Montagnard refugees from Vietnam on the outskirts of Bangkok. Most of the 181 refugees detained were Christians. The adults arrested were kept at the Immigration Detention Center (IDC), while 47 children and infants are now being held at the Thai Ministry of Social Development and Human Security,
Christians in Vietnam have faced persecution for decades, yet it appears to be escalating. With continued reports of human right abuses and violations against them in their home country, many have escaped to Cambodia and Thailand hoping for a better life for them and their families.
