'World Citizen' Office Aims to Make Burmese Legal

Thursday, September 2, 2010
A LABOR recruitment office that claims to be committed to United Nations human rights objectives is starting operations on Phuket with the aim of helping Burmese workers to become legal.

The World Citizen Phuket office aims to transport Burmese workers from Phuket to Burma to enable the so-called ''validation process'' to be completed. Once the workers have the approved documentation from Burma, they can legally be employed on Phuket.

By some estimates, more than 100,000 Burmese work legally and illegally on Phuket. As Phuketwan revealed this week, corruption, people-trafficking and sexual enslavement all form part of the experience of many Burmese in Thailand.

Kittaphong Chonvarin, director of ''World Citizen Phuket,'' visited Phuket Governor Wichai Praisa-ngob at Provincial Hall in Phuket City today to explain the plan to improve the lot of Phuket's illegal Burmese workers.

Phuketwan has since sighted a ''Cooperation Contract'' that deals with ''recruiting, sending and managing workers work in the Kingdom of Thailand.''

The paperwork names two businesses, Thepthai Intertrading Co Ltd, 5/11 Moo 4, Khongthanon, Soumai, Bangkok, and Azami company, 618 Traders Hotel, A Shangir-la Hotel, No. 223 Sule Pagoda Road, Yangon, Myanmar.

At one point in the documentation it says that Party B (Thepthai) agrees to pay Party A (Azami) 26,000 baht ''for one labor as good will money.''

The four pages of the cooperation contract are stamped with a seal saying ''UN Covenant, Protect Human Rights, Preserve Human Dignity.''

The World Citizen Phuket office opened on August 25, Khun Kittaphong said, with 10 staff in Wirathongyouk Road, Phuket City. The telephone number is 076 223499.
