BANGKOK – December 27, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; at the Human Trafficking Suppression Division, Pol. Maj. Gen. Kitisak Durongkhawibul (Commander), Pol. Col. Chitphop Tomuean (Superintendent) together with the detective police team made a statement about the arrest of Ms. Thipphawan Tempao, (who was the defendant) according to the arrest warrant No 898/2556 dated May 22, 2013 in an allegation of human trafficking by organising 3 or more persons to seek benefit from prostitution, arranging, deceiving or persuading people into prostitution by tricking, threatening or forcing with any method. She was arrested at 75/111 Moo 9 Soi Chaiwat, Bang Khor sub-district, Jom Thong district, Bangkok.

Pol. Maj. Gen. Kitisak said that this arrest was due to; at the end of 2012 Ms. Thipphawan had associated with Mrs. Pheangjai Kim, aged 37 (a Thai woman who got married to a South Korean man), to deceive Ms. Noom (alias), aged 17, Roi Ed resident, who was Mrs. Pheangjai’s niece to work in a Thai style massage parlour in South Korea but later the defendants seized Ms. Noom’s passport and forced her to sell sexual services at “Ayuddhaya” shop in Taenung, Seoul, South Korea. Ms. Noom (the victim) secretly sent a message via Facebook to ask for help from her friends and government organizations to help her get back to Thailand. On May 18, 2013 she went to notify the police at the Human Trafficking Suppression Division to prosecute with the group of defendants. The officers gathered all the evidence to ask for the approval from the criminal court to issue the arrest warrant for Mrs. Pheangjai. On May 23, 2013 Mrs. Pheangjai came back from South Korea but went into hiding so the police stepped up their search and found her hiding in a house in Bangkok. After initial investigation, Ms. Thiphawan still denied all allegations so the officers sent the case to the prosecutor to prosecute further.

Another defendant Ms. Chada Inta-yuang, aged 38, address 74/1 Moo 1 Tambon Jomsawan, Amphur Mae Jan, Chiang Rai province, was arrested according to the arrest warrant of the criminal court at 2296/2551 dated July 29, 2008 for the allegation of associating 2 or more persons to commit the offence of trading women and children for buying, selling, bringing or taking to any place, detaining women or children to gratify other people’s sexual desire, arranging, deceiving or persuading people for prostitution by tricking or forcing with any methods, she was arrested at Mae Tho checkpoint, Moo 7 Tambon Mae Jedi Yai, Amphur Wiang Pa Pao, Chiang Rai province.

On September, 2007, Ms. Chada Inta-yuang had associated with British and Chinese men to deceive Ms. Joom (alias) by telling her that they would take her to work in England and she would be paid 500,000 THB for all expenses. When she arrived in England she was raped and forced to sell sexual services in many cities of England and Scotland which she had to service 7-15 customers per day. On December, 2007 the Scottish police raided the brothel and assisted Ms. Joom in getting her back to Thailand. Afterwards, the victim went to notify the police to prosecute Ms. Chada. From initial investigation, the defendant denied for all allegations so the officers sent her to the investigation officer of the Human Trafficking Suppression Division to prosecute her further according to the Thai law.
