Pattaya, the 9th of August 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 00:30am on Monday, Lieutenant Colonel Chusak Khethong (Anti-Human Trafficking Division Police) was notified of an incident involving an underage girl and a foreign national at the Health Hotel in Soi Yamoto, South Pattaya.

Following the unidentified tip-off, police organised a raid on the suspect’s room, finding Mr. Oystein Larsen [60] from Norway and a Thai girl, Miss Fa (alias) in a compromising position.

Investigations found that Mr. Larsen had taken Miss Fa, found to be 16-year-old, back to his hotel having agreed to pay her for sexual services in South Pattaya. Miss Fa subsequently acknowledged that Mr. Larsen had propositioned her to have sex with him before taking her back to his hotel room.

Allegedly, police have since found that Mr. Larsen was a regular procurer of underage girls in Pattaya, despite having denied any knowledge of her being underage.

Editors Note: Without negating the seriousness of any case involving sexual intercourse with a minor, this particular instance reveals some very “scary” situations that a foreigner could find himself in when dealing with Pattaya’s working girls.

In this case, the girl was openly touting her ‘business’ in South Pattaya and at 16 was completely aware of the situation she was in and the ramifications any arrest could have for herself and her customers. We all are aware of why these girls are forced into such measures to earn money, but more importantly should not deny that it has some relevance in a case of this nature.

Thai identification cards are a “dime a dozen,” why was she not using a fake or friends card to conceal her age, especially when hotels are increasingly more stringent in keeping records, (not the case in this instance but a plausible situation nonetheless).

Having seen the young girl (not shown due to age), we can confirm, as is so often the case, that it is impossible to determine whether she is 16, 18 or 20-years-old without having documented proof.

In addition, what makes Mr. Larsen’s case so important? A walk down Pattaya’s Beach Road anytime of the day or night will reveal numerous other potential cases of this nature, just from the shear youthful look of the majority of Thai women, “fingers can be pointed.”

The foreign involvement in such cases, which are regularly reported, makes you question are there any Thai-Thai relationships of this kind? The answer is most definitely a YES, but why do we not so frequently here of them? This is Thailand after-all. Certain underlying issues may be affecting the judgement of all parties involved in such busts, although proving it is another matter altogether.

We are not in this or any other instance suggesting that entrapment or corruption is an issue here nor are we condoning Mr. Larsen’s actions, however his situation does bring up some interesting points for any foreigner to consider before enacting the services of prostitute in Pattaya or anywhere in Thailand.
