Cops arrest Lao woman for trafficking teen in Narathiwat karaoke bar

In a raid last night time on a karaoke bar in the primary metropolis district of South Thailand’s Narathiwat province, cops arrested a 35 year previous Lao woman on costs of allegedly luring a 14 yr old girl into the flesh commerce. The suspect, identified solely as Souk, was the proprietor of the Seechompu karaoke bar within the Bang Nak sub-district, the place the arrest occurred, Bangkok Post reported.
Officers from the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Division (ATPD) seized a cell phone, cash receipt, condom, and cash transfer slip from Souk in the course of the operation. The arrest came after an undercover police officer, posing as a buyer, requested a sexual service at the establishment. Pay zero charged the officer 2,000 baht and introduced the 14 year previous girl to him, at which level the ATPD police intervened and apprehended the owner.
During the interrogation, Souk initially denied providing any sexual providers at her bar. However, the police had adequate evidence to charge her. The authorities subsequently accused her of human trafficking for involving a minor in the flesh commerce and held her in custody on the ATPD’s sub-division 6, awaiting further legal motion.
Thailand is infamous for its issues with sex trafficking.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Royal Thai Police (RTP) is ready to collaborate with Interpol in establishing a coordinating centre to combat human trafficking gangs working in Southeast Asia. A meeting between Thai police officers and the FBI occurred on the Interpol Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore to debate human trafficking prevention strategies.
