Karaoke bar owner in Chiang Mai arrested for allegedly pimping underage girls

By The Nation

 

A karaoke bar owner and her assistant were arrested early Friday after allegedly offering paid sex with girls under 18 to undercover officials.

 

Suphannee Thisayana, 36, owner of Ban Hao Karaoke in Tambon Patum in Chiang Mai’s Prao district, and Sirinan Maneewan 35, were arrested shortly after midnight in a sting operation.

 

Police officers, Department of Special Investigation personnel and Prao district officials jointly planned the arrest after a girl, who used to work at the bar, complained to a non-governmental organisation that young girls were being forced to work as prostitutes at the bar.

 

The three agencies sent undercover officials to the bar late Thursday night and pretended to seek to buy services from three girls for Bt3,000 each.

 

When the two women brought out the girls, aged 14, 15 and 17, and took their money, the officials arrested them.

 

Both were charged with human trafficking.

 

Prao police station deputy chief Pol Lt-Colonel Walop Samathi said police would investigate whether there were other people involved in luring of young girls into the sex trade.

 

The three girls were placed in the care of officials and were to be sent to their families.

Does not really matter what her motivation was.
It is criminal and immoral in Thailand. In my opinion immoral anywhere, but here it is against the law.

Not the point!

Unfortunately in many cases the parents of the girls are involved, anything for a buck :(

And your evidence for this is,??

There was no point. It was a meaningless observation within the context of the article.
Who cares why she reported a criminal enterprise?
Are you disappointed that now fewer underaged girls are available?

Are you insinuating that I get young underage girls and am disappointed as now have less? Sorry pal. My Thai/American daughter is almost 15 years old and I am seriously rather protective. She is not allowed to even walk to the store. As for this sort of girl, way back in the old days when prevalent everywhere, I have been in remote places and in places like this before. I just ignore it as was there to drink and sing, not to engage in your subdued fantasy. My statement was purely just that: The girl probably had grievances and took revenge. Period!

 

If you can speak Thai and have ever been around other than your safe zones, then you would be able to speak.

At what age will you let her off the leash and what do you expect her to do then?
