Japan arrests Thai for human trafficking
Tokyo, Japan - A woman from Thailand and and another from Taiwan living in central Japan were arrested Monday on suspicion of human-trafficking, police officials said. Investigators told local news media they were also hunting for a Japanese man whom they suspect was involved in bringing dozens of foreign women, including a Thai woman who was forced into prostitution at one of the suspect's bars. The two suspects were identified as Kuo Chu, 47, from Taiwan and Kamkhaiw Benjaporn, 32, from Thailand. They have already been arrested and charged for alleged violation of the law on entertainment business. According to local police, the two "bought" a 27-year-old Thai woman for 2.4 million yen (642,000 baht) from a broker in May to have her work at Kuo's bar. They forced the Thai woman into prostitution, telling her she owed them a 5 million yen (more than 1.3 million baht) debt over her expenses in coming to Japan, police alleged. The case came to light after the Thai woman sought help at the Thai Embassy in Tokyo, they said.
