A recent law passed by Thailand's military government makes it illegal for migrant workers to use mobile phones and any Thai citizen is allowed to confiscate them on sight. Migrants are also prohibited from driving cars or motorbikes and are not allowed out of their houses after 8pm. Tin Tin does not let his daugther go to school.
