This is human exploitation at its very worst. Tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees have been trafficked from Myanmar into Thailand. Trapped in ghettos along the Myanmar coast, the Rohingya board trafficker boats to seek a better life, only to later find themselves trapped in the jungle camps of Thailand. One refugee describes the extraordinary cruelty of the traffickers: “If the children cry, they beat us. If we talk to each other, they beat us. If we complain about the food not being enough, they also beat us. They beat us not with their hands but wire.”
