Nine Maltese nationals return safe and sound from Indonesia
Nine Maltese nationals who had been caught in Thailand after the protests by the Opposition at Bangkok’s airports have now returned safely to Malta, the Foreign Affairs Ministry said.
Another two Maltese nationals, together with their Thai wives, were on their way back to Malta. Another Maltese national who had not been contact was now found in Jakarta and was expected to return to Malta next week.
Maltese Foreign Affairs Minister Tonio Borg explained that the situation in Bangkok was “one of confusion” despite the fact that the airports were gradually returning to normal.
Minister Borg thanked the Maltese Consul in Thailand, Niphan Benjavilas, as well as the officers at the Protocol Directorate of the Foreign Ministry for their work in the past few days so that all the Maltese nationals who had been stranded in Thailand were given all the necessary assistance.
