Thai members of Thai-Cambodian Joint Boundary Committee (JBC) along with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs will examine the areas neighboring Cambodia on Jan. 18, a local website Thai Rath reported.

Members of the two committees plan to inspect and find information in eastern Sa Kaeo province's Nongchan village opposite to Banteay Meanchey province where the seven Thais were arrested for illegal entry into Cambodian territory.

The committee members will also examine the area around boundary post no. 46 and No. 47.

Initially, they have coordinated with related authorities in both Thailand and Cambodia and have obtained permission to go into disputed areas.

The seven detainees would be tried and held in prison in Phnom Penh Thursday, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen reportedly said.
