Underage Bar Girl Caught at Soi Buakhao Bar
A sting operation was set up on Thursday evening by officers from the Child Protection Center after receiving information that underage prostitution was going on at a bar on Soi Buakhao in South Pattaya. A plain clothes undercover agent went along to the Susie bar and requested one of the young girls on display. The controller agreed a price of 3,000 baht and brought a girl who turned out to be 14 years old. When money was handed over, the agent revealed his identity and arrested both women. The 19 year old controller stated that she ran the bar for her mother, who was not available. The girl told her that she was 19 years old, so hired her. The girl, who cannot be named, stated that she did the work willingly to make some money whilst on school holidays. Both were taken back to the station for legal proceedings and the girl will be sent to a child welfare center to await her parents’ arrival.
