BANGKOK (NNT) - The Thai government has emphasized its commitment to solving human trafficking issues within the country, as well as identifying and protecting trafficking victims. Deputy Prime Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan has set a target for Thailand to be listed on the Tier 2 list on the U.S. Trafficking in Persons report next year.

 

Deputy Prime Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan has urged government agencies to strengthen their efforts to suppress human trafficking activities within the country, including a goal for Thailand to be moved to Tier 2 on the U.S. Trafficking in Persons report next year.

 

At the opening ceremony of a workshop on human trafficking suppression in fisheries at the Children, Women, Families Protection Center, the DPM stressed the government’s policy against human trafficking, which is considered a national agenda.

 

He urged related officials to work more collectively, more seriously, and more continually to achieve long-term sustainability, while giving priority to the protection of trafficking victims, particularly abused women and children in confinement.

 

Gen Prawit urged agencies to increase the level of their efforts, saying previous anti-trafficking efforts were “negligent,” and that government officials were found to be complicit.

 

The DPM asked the officials to learn from previous cases and to establish a mutual protocol to improve the effectiveness of anti-trafficking operations.

 

He also asked the police and workplaces to speed up the establishment of a screening center for trafficking victims, in order to make the country’s anti-trafficking system on par with the international standard.

Wow!  The pot calling the kettle black.  Meanwhile there is a move to out Amnesty International from Thailand.

"Hopes"?

 

Without taking any actions? Classic thai.

 

 

Then when they don't get elevated they'll say the U.S. doesn't understand thai-style slavery. And the TIP report isn't really important.

 

 

BANGKOK (The Nation/Asia News Network): Soldiers of 14th Infantry Regiment on Wednesday (Nov 24) night arrested 184 Myanmar migrants as they were crossing the border into Thailand without documentation at Phob Phra district in Tak province.

 

They had also paid an agency who promised to help them find a job in inner provinces of Thailand at 20,000 baht per person.

If there ever was a Statement that condemned Thailand efforts against Human Trafficking, and their own incompetence, among other things, then this is it.

All from the mouth of one of the top dogs themselves.

They probably won’t do a darn thing about it, just hope to gain a better status on the 2022 Trafficking in Persons report. How nice. The victims of all that trafficking will be so happy.

Nice little racket, 184 x 20,000 is almost 4 million baht. I wonder how much of that money ends up in the pockets of Thai officials. No wonder it’s so hard to get control of this.
