PREPARATIONS are currently being made for the repatriation of six Chinese nationals, for whom an order of deportation was issued in May at the Naypyidaw office of the Ministry of Immigration and Population, according to the Kengtung Township immigration department.
The Chinese nationals were found to have crossed illegally into Myanmar and arrested at a dwelling within the Hsansaing Ward-1 of Tachileik on 30 April 2016. They were later fined and sentenced to be deported in accordance with immigration procedures at the Tachileik Township court of law on 16 May.
“[The Chinese nationals] will be repatriated to China via Mong La Special Region-4. The Kengtung Department of Immigration, along with other individuals concerned, will be responsible for escorting the trespassers to the border,” said U Moe Maung Maung Khin, head of the Kengtung Township Department of Immigration and Population (DIP).
The Chinese nationals were temporarily detained at the Tachileik Police Station during the morning of 24 May before being transferred to the Kengtung Township DIP. Plans are currently being made for their repatriation to China via Mong La Special Region-4 with a security escort.
The six Chinese nationals in question are Li Hailing, Shi Mingchang, Zeng Peng, Lai Janjie, Zou Yongkang and Zhang Bin. They were all charged under Article 7.1 of the 1947 Myanmar Immigration Act.
