Authorities are now investigating whether the more than 60 Rohingya people discovered on Satun’s Rawi Island were victims of human trafficking.

Officials revealed that they had noticed a boat on the island on Tuesday and went to investigate.

On the island, they found 65 Rohingya – 31 men, 30 women and four children.

A source said the group was with a Thai national. The refugees have been provided with food and water, and will very likely face deportation.
