Lt Sompop Kamkana from the Royal Thai Navy Third Area Command said the first raid was carried out at 6:30am this morning at a camp in Moo 4 in Rawai.

“We found around 100 workers at the camp, but they were all Thai nationals mostly from Isan. The area was generally clean and we found nothing illegal.

“The people who take care of the camp told us that the company had laid off all of its migrant workers and that there were none left at the site,” Lt Sompop said.

“We then raided a second camp at 7:30am, this was a lot larger than the first and was close to Baan Palai. The site belong to Theparak Phattankorn Company.

“Here we found one foreman, a Chinese man, but he had a work permit and was found to be a legal worker. He looks after the site, but we could see that there were no workers there. He told us that the reason was because the company stopped their construction over a month ago,” he added.
