70 Nepalis in different jails in Thailand

A team led by Charge d' Affairs at the Nepali Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand, visited 70 Nepalis including nine women, who are currently doing times in different jails in Thailand, to acquire information about them.

The team led by Charge d' Affairs, Dornath Aryal, comprising officer-bearers of Non-Resident Nepalis Association (NRNA), Thailand, acquired information about their condition in Thai jails.

On the occasion, the Nepali prisoners requested the team to help them shift in Nepal so that they could spend their remaining jail term in Nepal.

Likewise, they also requested the Charge d' Affairs to take necessary initiatives for granting royal amnesty in Thailand. The Nepalis complained that they were mostly panicked due to language problem.

The team met with Director at the Central Women Jail and requested to help Nepalis on humanitarian ground as the Nepalese prisoners were facing different problems including language. Most of the Nepali jailbirds in Thailand have been charged of their involvement in drug smuggling.

However, NRNA Thailand said that different gangs involved in organised crimes have used innocent Nepalis asking them to carry drugs.
