5 more held in child prostitution case

THE criminal court has issued additional arrest warrants for five more suspects linked to a child prostitution case in northern Mae Hong Son province, Thai News Agency said today (May 2).

Anti-trafficking in Persons Division chief Pol. Maj. Gen. Kornchai Klayklueng said all five suspects are natives of this northern province and were allegedly the ones who arranged and supplied children for prostitution.

Pol. Maj. Gen Kornchai added that he has received a report that the investigation team has now arrested all the suspects in this case and those arrested today are being read their charges after being taken in for questioning at 2 p.m. today.

Last Saturday a sanook.com report said that Deputy National Police Director-General Siwara Rangsiprammanakul has set up a committee to investigate the governor of Mae Hong Son Province for allegedly buying sex from an under-age girl.
