Lao Hmongs in Thailand Insist They Do Have CIA Links


Members of the Hmong refugees in Ban Huay Nam Khao, Thailand, assert that they did have CIA connections, in response to the Lao government spokesman's remark that they had lied in hope of being accepted for resettlement by the United States or other third countries.

Meng Ly Yang, who has been living in Ban Huay Nam Khao since 2006, said his father had worked for the CIA and American troops, as had the parents of some 2,000 of his fellow Hmongs who are currently liding in the jungles of Laos, hiding from government troops and as a result facing famine and starvation.

He calls on the United Nations and the international community to demand that the Lao government stop its oppression of those Hmongs.
