Bangkok, 23rd February[Pattaya Daily News] At 6.00 pm a team of Immigration police led by Maj. Gen. Wiboon Bangthamai, Immigration Police Commissioner and Maj. Gen. Momluang Phansak Kasemsan, Immigration Police Deputy Commissioner, conjoined with Ministry of Social Development and Human Security officers to arrest a gang of fraudsters for committing human trafficking offences at Baby 101 Ltd.79/246, Thararom Village, Soi 150, Ramkhamhaeng Raod, Saphansung, Bangkok. The arrested suspects are Miss Chern Pai Wan (35), Chinese-Taiwanese national; Mr. Chai Lin Ee (26), Chinese-Taiwanese national; Mr. Zu Ui Chian (31), Chinese-Taiwanese national; Mr. Lu Khai (27), Chinese national; and Miss Chai Yu Yun (25), Chinese-Taiwanese national. In addition, 13 Vietnamese women, 7 of whom were near to term pregnant. The victims were found detained in the house. All suspects and victims were brought  to the Immigration Bureau office for further questioning.    

Maj. Gen. Momluang Kasemsan stated that he had been informed by the DSI that the company detained aliens to work illegally. Accordingly a search warrant from Meen Buri Provincial Court was issued and the premises raided. The officer then discovered a worker at the scene, Miss Pranee Saejang from Chiangmai, causing the officers to investigate further.  

Maj. Gen. Momluang Kasemsan added that they found alien workers working talking over the internet with clients who want to have babies and required the company’s services. During the brief investigation the workers were found to have no work permits. Meanwhile a worker claimed that she worked for Mr. Siang Lung Lo whilst Miss Chern Pai Wan managed company. Subsequently, the officer discovered that 9 of the 13 Vietnamese women had valid passports. 

The Vietnamese women claimed that they were detained in the house to work for the company as a surrogate mum and told police that more Vietnamese women were detained in another house number 79/256 in the same village, leading police to find out more 4 women, 2 of whom were pregnant. Besides, the officer discovered company papers and the pregnancy hiring agreements which, together with some other equipment have been impounded as evidence.  

Officers from the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security managed to question the Vietnamese victims, who stated that they had been deceived by Mr. Siang Lung Lo and Miss Chern Pai Wan into coming to Thailand to work for the company. On arrival, however, their passports were impounded by the company and the job offered were not as had been described. The manager then offered them work as artificial mums who would have to carry the foetus pregnancy for foreign clients for a fee of 5,000 $US. If they did not agree to this, they would not receive any money and would not be able to return home.

The plight of these women came to light when 4 of the Vietnamese victims asked the Vietnamese Embassy in Thailand via internet for help, simultaneously involving the DSI and the Immigration Bureau. The victims explained that some of them were brought to the Sereerak Hospital, Serethai Road, Meen Buri, Bangkok for fertilization and to receive prenatal care. 

In addition the Immigration Inspector had charged the Baby 101 Company that had Mr. Siang Lung Lo a director with following: Having aliens work without permission, human trafficking and supporting and concealing the aliens illegally. 

Further investigation has shown that Mr. Siang Lung Lo has a history of similar offences in his own country. He hired Vietnamese women to work as surrogate mums. The worker would get 5,000 US Dollars, about 150,000 baht, from the clients fee of 1.5 million baht. Mr. Sieng Lung Lo had escaped arrest there, travelling to Thailand to rebuild the company for the same business.
