Human rights groups have expressed concern over Thailand’s plan to send Burmese asylum seekers home after the elections in Burma next month.

Thailand’s foreign minister made the announcement in New York, saying repatriating Burmese asylum seekers was a priority for his government. But rights workers say the elections will only entrench military rule in Burma and that the country will not be any safer for those who have fled.
