PHUKET: Crime Suppression Division police raided a Phuket construction site at 5.30pm yesterday and arrested 84 Burmese workers with no documents.
The arrests took place at the Phanason Grand View Bang Jo at Thalang, in central Phuket, where police also reported finding an unregistered – and therefore non-tax paying – backhoe.


Construction was about 30 percent complete at the site, police said.

The arrested workers were taken first to Thalang Police Station to be charged then to Immigration Headquarters in Phuket City.
They are likely to serve short sentences for working in Thailand illegally before being deported to Burma.
