Lady from the old Thai capital seized for human trafficking
On Wednesday afternoon, Pattaya police announced the arrest of Mrs Thanaporn Junladech, 48, from Ayuthaya Province. She was accused of human trafficking by a Miss Sintorn, one of three female victims, who managed to escape from where she was imprisoned in Malaysia. After escaping, she requested an official to take her back to Thailand. As soon as the police received this urgent report from Miss Sintorn, Mrs Thanaporn was taken to the station for investigation. After her arrest, Mrs Thanaporn confessed that she was responsible for the provision of Thai ladies to be prostitutes in Malaysia, and had done this many times.
The police revealed that all the three female victims were persuaded to work as spa masseuses in Malaysia, but instead, they were transferred to a human trafficking group once they reached Malaysia. This Thai dealer, Mrs Thanaporn, was given 75,000 baht for sending these ladies. The ladies strenuously refused to become consorts for sexual pleasure, so were locked up for nine days. A man who kept an eye on them told them they must work as a prostitute in exchange for liberty, or give him 50,000 baht to set them free.
The police are cooperating with the Malaysian police to search for the other two Thai victims, who were identified as Miss New from Kalasin Province, and Miss No, a Udonthani-born lady.
