PATTAYA – March 26, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 1:30 a.m., a total of 11 Sri Lankans were arrested by Chonburi immigration police. The illegal labor network of the “baby goat movement” is a human trafficking operation that smuggles workers from a poor country to work in a third country.

The exploited workers are often temporarily housed in a second country before being sent to the destination country. Police arrested the 11 male suspects at the Prima place mansion, Pattaya route 3, moo 10, Nongprue, Banglamung, Chonburi.

The police were responding to complaints that there were many foreigners living in tight quarters, who should be checked. The police went investigate and discovered that the Sri Lankans had been sent to live temporarily in Pattaya, while waiting to be sent to the third country.

A Thai manager who arranged their living arrangements was also arrested. The Sri Lankans said that already more than 20 other Sri Lankan people had departed from Laem Chabang pier to go to another country.

From their investigation and the testimony of the suspects, the police will expand the case and arrest the rest of those involved in the operation.

Meanwhile, the immigration police nullified the Thailand visas of the detained Sri Lankans, and sent them to the detective officer of Muang Pattaya police station. Thai officials will assist them to go back to their hometown.
