Malaysian authorities have arrested 53 Thais who travelled to Melaka City in Malaysia to sell goods at a “Thai Food” event on January 6 to 15.

Ibrohim Benna, a justice expert official at the Southern Border Provinces Administrative Centre (SBPAC), said officials would be sent to aid the Thai citizens.

He said the Thai citizens from the deep South were being held at the Machap Umboo detention facility and accused of violating Malaysian immigration law by entering the country as tourists and then opening shops in Melaka. They face up to six months in prison and/or a 1,000-ringgit (Bt7,950) fine.
