Thank you for raising awareness regarding the Rohingya; it would be interesting to know what community group "bought" him. Surely, there has to be some way to get involved and help?

Good reporting. This is shocking human treatment. Well done to the Community group for there actions. Where is the action from the Prime Minister? These slave traders deserve life which is to light a sentance. Please keep us updated on this issue.

When a large part of the population treats citizens of neighboring countries with contempt, this kind of behavior finds fertile soil to flourish.

Wasn't there talk recently that the U.N was going to impose sanctions against Thailand until they took positive action to stamp out this heinous act?

Wonderful work of journalism, Chutima and Alan. I don't know if you know that several Bangladeshi newspapers have virtually reprinted this story this week.

I am going to share this story in the hopes that you all keep up this world changing work... and that the international media keep watch on your excellent reports!

The BBC has a report today worth watching/reading, Tiffany. Let's hope there are more to come. At least there's now an understanding that this is not just about the 850 ''rescued'' from the transit camps but the thousands being trafficked and the ethnic cleansing driving them from Burma. The exodus is growing, and that probably pleases the Burmese government if not its inactive Asean neighbors. From what we hear, conditions inside Burma are worse now than at any time since June. One day the Thai media will react.
