Cambodian, Vietnamese found dead in Immigration detention cell

Two men, a Cambodian and a Vietnamese, were found dead in a detention room at the Immigration Police Bureau early on Wednesday.

Pol Lt Col Kamolpop Dissayabutr, deputy inspector of Thung Mahamek police station, said ground-floor detention room No 14Bt, where the two men were found dead, was holding 15 foreign nationals at the time.

Both bodies were found in sleeping position on one side of the room.

The Cambodian was identified only as Sakhi, 55, and the Vietnamese as Robat, 72.

The Cambodian man was transferred from Nakhon Pathom and Vietnamese from Nakhon Si Thammarat.

The two had been charged with unlawfully entering the country.

A detainee in the same room told police that he got up in the night to use toilet and noticed that the two were not breathing, so he alerted officials.

The bodies were sent for autopsy at the Chulalongkorn Hospital.
