Initially, 12 Chinese nationals were arrested on site, while another 18 managed to flee. However, it’s understood that they too were captured. The men say they were hired by a Chinese supervisor and were paid between 1,500 and 3,000 baht a day.

The 30 workers have been taken to Thalang Police Station for legal processing. The authorities have withheld the name of the construction company and the site in question.
