According to RFA Vietnamese service 23 Khmer Krom currently on the Cambodian side of the border are facing difficulties with no food, no proper accomodation and no where to go.

The 23 are remaining 50 people who was deported from Thailand early July, while the others have already fled back into Bangkok to seek refuge with the UNHCR while others with relatives in Cambodia have moved to stay with the relatives.

Cambodia law stipulates Khmer Krom are entitled to Cambodian citizenship but the Khmer Krom who have been deported fear they will be sent back to Vietnam by the Cambodian government.
