53 women caught in sex trade raid at karaoke bar

Fifty-three Lao females – including three girls under 18 – were rounded up in a raid on a karaoke bar in Narathiwat's Muang district following a tip-off of alleged underage prostitution and human trafficking.

 

DSI Bureau of Human Trafficking Crime director Pol Lt Colonel Torsak Sawadimongkol and Narathiwat Immigration Office superintendent Pol Colonel Noppadol Rakchat led a 60-strong team to search the bar on Rangae Makka Road, at 12.30am on Friday.

 

Police searched the Fan Mai Karaoke Bar after three Lao workers – apparently under 18 – agreed to provide sex services to undercover police.

 

The 53 workers were later screened by forensic officers as well as officials from the provincial social development and human security office, labour office and Alliance Anti Trafic (AAT) Foundation.

 

An anonymous source at AAT said the raid of this bar followed a tip-off provided by a foundation volunteer in Laos that three girls were lured into prostitution in the Thai southern border province.

 

Narathiwat social development and human security officer Masapi Incharansat said 53 workers had passports and visas but they worked in the illegal profession of prostitution. 

 

The three underage girls – who consented or were forced into prostitution -– were regarded as human trafficking victims and would be sent to the Narathiwat Children and Family Home for rehabilitation and legal protection. 

 

Police are also preparing charges of violating the Child Protection Act 2003, the Labour Protection Act and the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act 2008.

Take these raids all with a grain of salt after all this time (brown bag too small) 

but underage I dislike & an operator should have more brains & not allow

Here is the real Thai sex trade that primarily caters to Thai males.  And it's larger in scope and more pervasive by magnitudes than the limited sex trade that caters to foreigners in tourist cities.  But the limited foreign sex trade gets all the press including the insinuations that virtually every foreign guy is either a monger or a 'sexpat'.  <laughs> 

I lived down there for around a year while birding. And lived in the hotels where that was going on. It was insane to say the least.

The one thing that really stands out for me is, the Thai women working there were absolutely stunning IMO. 

I used to eat where the girls would come for supper. Natural beauties.

Malaysian and Thai men have good taste to say the least.

If I were into that sort of thing that is where I would be.. Amazing.

good if they can get a few victims out of the trafficking situation.
maybe the over 18-teens would have been happy to get out as well,
but have no information where to go and thus dare not.

(Is there a number people in a trafficking situation can call, if they get a chance?
TV could post it here, somewhere is better than nowhere.
Similar to helpline number for those at suicide risk)

Sometimes it is good that there is some discretion in the investigation and instigation is, IMHO, in such cases acceptable
