The Myanmar migrant workers upon their return in Myawaddy.

Some 200 Myanmar migrant workers arrived back from Malaysia on October 25 and were welcomed by the authorities who arranged for them to get back to their home towns.

Most of the workers were men. They had to give 1,150 ringgit (Ks 360,000) to brokers to return to Myawaddy through Thailand from Malaysia, they said.

Most of them had been working in Malaysia illegally and some of them returned home due to fears for their safety. Some of the workers decided to come back after their family members called on them to return.
