(CNN): Thailand’s prime minister suspects there were "some instances" in which Thai authorities pushed Myanmar’s Rohingya boat people out to sea, a frank admittance of a practice drawing worldwide condemnation. In an exclusive interview with CNN Thursday, Abhisit Vejjajiva said he could not pinpoint who in the government approved the practice, but said he was working on rectifying the problem. "It’s not exactly clear whose work it is," Vejjajiva said. "All the authorities say it’s not their policy, but I have reason to believe some instances of this happened." Go to article
