President of Uyghur educational association Mr. Ahmed and Nijat handed over a memorandum to an embassy official. They said the East Turkistani people were shocked and grieved over Thailand’s decision to handover asylum seekers back to china.
300 Uyghurs fleeing from Chinese persecution were caught in Thailand last March with forged passports. Primarily composed of women and children, the group was caught attempting to cross into Malaysia, where they were hoping to find a way to Turkey. They were found tired and hungry in a forest.
