According to informed sources, DKBO are already there where the proposed
refugee camp is to be located. The site is entirely unsafe, even with
protection from vigilent armed Thai border police.
(From earlier Bkk Post article) "A new refugee camp will be built in Umphang
district, Tak, to serve 6,500 Karen refugees who had just fled several KNU
bases overrun by Burmese
government troops earlier this month."
"The new refugee camp will be located on a 400-rai plot of land at Ban Nupho
village in Tambon Mae Chan, Umphang. It is 13 kilometres from the
Thai-Burmese border and easy for Thai authorities to secure, Mr Pongpayom said."
