Thai woman accused of procuring women for sex work in South Korea

A THAI woman who allegedly procured women from the Northeast to work as prostitutes in South Korea has been arrested in Pathum Thani.

 

A total of nine suspects were nabbed after a seven-day operation by Bangkok’s Metropolitan Police Bureau (MPB), including four wanted in regard to eight human-trafficking cases, and another two suspects arrested in connection with related cases.

 

MPB chief Pol Lt-General Sanit Mahathavorn vowed yesterday to continue the crackdown till his jurisdiction was free of human traffickers.

 

Warisara Chatree, 52, of Udon Thani, was arrested in Thai Somboon Market in Pathum Thani’s Klong Luang district for charges including procuring women to prostitution, fraud, and illegal detention to coerce others into the sex trade. 

 

MPB inspector Pol Major Wasan Thawatchaiwirut said Warisara’s arrest stemmed from offences in 2009 where she and her husband allegedly lured women to work as prostitutes in South Korean sex parlours.

 

He said the gang locked the victims up in hotel rooms while they waited for prostitution jobs. After they banged on hotel doors for help, staff rescued the women and sent them to the Royal Thai Embassy in Seoul. 

 

Warisara and her South Korean husband fled the country before investigators reached them, Wasan said. Warisara later told police that her contact in South Korea hired her husband to find Thai women for the sex trade. 

 

She said she was helped by Udon Thani man Somkid Hawichien, who is still being sought, to find women by promising them massage jobs in South Korea. Each victim paid a Bt30,000 fee to Somkid and Warisara.

I'm amazed at how much money you can earn prostituting your body in South Korea. No wonder there is a problem, look how much they get paid!

Police apprehended four men Wednesday for trafficking more than 40 Thai women to brothel owners in Seoul. The men allegedly recruited the prostitutes via an online messaging service. The women were also detained, police said.

The men arrested had set up their own brothel in a rented room in Daechi-dong, southern Seoul, and charged between 120,000 won ($109) and 180,000 won ($163) for sex with the women. 


That's more than a Doctor gets paid. I wonder what the penalties on getting caught are in South Korea? There's got to be a downside to this.

The girls were promised jobs in South Korean massage parlours. What did the girls think they would be doing in there, reading the virtues of Buddha to their Korean customers?

 

Sorry, but most of these girls know exactly what they are getting into and what is expected of them. Only when the terms of contract doesn`t meet their expectations do they then claim human trafficking and being victims of sex slavery. This is the tip of the iceberg, there are illegal agencies openly advertising services on the social media for Thai girls to work as sex workers all over Asia and believe me, there are no shortages of willing participants for the jobs.

A recent report, stated that a majority of Thai nationals,think foreigners consider Thailand as simply a place for sex!

Really!

 

Thailand has a long 600 years of documented history in providing wives and girls for rent.

 

If the cap fits, then they should wear it proudly.

Those gals are like rock stars to the lost souls doing 100 Baht tug jobs in a Darkside dump with blacked out windows.
