Royal Thai Navy silent on preventing Rohingya relief ship arriving in Phuket

The Royal Thai Navy Third Area Command has yet to respond to queries as to why a Rohingya relief ship operated by an internationally recognised aid agency was informed that arriving in Phuket would “problematic” to the extent that the aid workers would not be able to perform their duties.
The issue came to the fore when the relief ship M/Y Phoenix, operated by the MOAS (Migrant Offshore Aid Station) project, posted its update report on its activities west off Phuket.
MOAS, founded in 2013 in response to the wave of Africa-to-Europe migrants risking their lives and dying at sea in Mediterranean, was heavily involved in the migrant crisis in the Aegean Sea from December 2015 to March 2016 that made international headlines. PN – EP
