Well known Thai policeman Lt-Gen Surachate Hakpan or Big Joke joined with human welfare police, marine cops and counterparts in Malaysia to anounce several arrests in two high profile cases, reported Daily News.

 

The first involves complaints from a group of Thais who were rescued in Sihanoukville in Cambodia after a gang conned them into illegal work there.

 

Around 15-20 people were kept prisoner after they were promised legitimate work in Thailand's neighbor but were forced to con their compatriots working at a call center instead. 

 

Arrest warrants were issued for ten people - four Chinese nationals, four Cambodians and two Thais.

In two districts of Chiang Mai a Thai woman called Ubonrat, 22, and a Chinese woman by the name of Thienfong were arrested in connection with the racket.

 

Police said the victims were held prisoner in appalling conditions before they managed to appeal for help online. Eight others are still being sought.

 

In the other case Surachate announced the arrest of a man called Jepa, 54, wanted in connected with the smuggling of illegal migrants between Thailand and Malaysia since 2015. A Malaysian warrant was out for him since 2016.

 

He is part of a wider gang involved in the demise of Rohingya migrants who were whipped to death.

 

Malaysian police have found the graves of 30 such people in their country.

Appalling conditions!  What about the appalling conditions  done to the ladies who work certain sois all day, and are with customers  for money and money for the pimps (bar owners).  This is human trafficking,  Oh!  But that's ok right?

Hats off to Big Joke, he's doing a good job, keep up the good work, I hope he's being looked after down South. 

he has arrested 2 women in chiang mai (with another 8 still on the run - they are not in thailand, so no chance he will arrest them).

He has arrested a man who was part of a gang since 2015 and who had malaysian arrest warrant  since 2016 (so for over 5 years).

Malaysians find 30 shallow graves, that is only a small part of total murdered, maybe only 10% of corpses were found. And that is only a small part of what true scale of slave trade is. Probably in tens of thousands. 

If he had searched good enough on the thai side of the border he would discover 10x more bodies.

But his work remit is only to coordinate with investigators abroad. Not to start his own investigation.

 

Those 3 low profile arrests are all he did in the last year, since returning to active duties.

 

He has an elephant ticket and will be rising in ranks, as he was a rising star for many years. However, he is subdued by prayuth for trying to expose corruption with biometric system for borders.

He is prawit protege, as soon as prayuth is gone and prawit will step into the PM shoes, big joke will be ready for key jobs. 

Yes, he is corrupted enough to be chef of immigration police once again. Possibly higher this time.

His present achievements have nothing to do with what he will be in a year  or two

Plenty of illegal Lao girls trafficked in for local clientele. Bars in Chonburi, Laem Chabang, Bang Saen etc. used to be full of them pre-COVID.

Dont disagree with much of what you say but Prawit will never be PM. He is far to shrewd and knows he is an utterly detestable person with few if any redeeming qualities...he is happy to sit behind and control things.

Why is the biggest joke still around, why are they allowing him the media he loves to hog, and of what relevance is he to anything or anyone? He is such a nobody. And such a dimwitted nothing.

He is friendly with very influential guys in govt. He is only big in the English press because his name means something different in English.

Whatever makes you sleep better at night.   To bad society as a whole disagrees with you

"Society as a whole" is typically so far afield, I could care less what they think. As @Mr Meeseeks noted, there are exceptions where working girls are trafficked, often with their consent, some times without. But your blanket statement is nonsense, and typical hyperbole.

Right! You are the authority  and everyone else is wrong.  It matters not if you care less.  Trafficking  is trafficking  and one could not get away with it in a industrialized ir western  country.   And far beyond reason one could expect one from the cancel  cul such as yourself to attempt deflection  and a sad attempt  to elevate your stance on the matter.  Wrong is wrong and we understand  why you feel that way.  I mean if the authorities  were to actually  enforce  and prevent you from doing the things illegal  and unlawful thiings you want, but can't in your country, then why would you come here and exploit thered.  Just because bottom line just because  you can see the jugular vein of the country and want to exploit it doesn't  make it the right thing or not trafficking.   Again keep telling yourself its not trafficking,  better yet go to your home country and try to do it.  Then see what the moral society  thinks then.
