Thailand Urged to Extend Migrant Worker Deadline

14 Dec 2012

BANGKOK — The head of the U.N. International Labor Organization, Guy Ryder, 
is expected to urge Thailand to extend a Friday deadline for migrant workers 
to become documented or face deportation. Bangkok is threatening to deport 
more than a million migrant workers, most from Burma, who do not finish 
a process called nationality verification, which activists say is flawed.  
The United Nations agency opposes mass deportation.
