The Thai government together with the Myanmar government help each other fight human trafficking. Yesterday on the 19th of November was the largest number of human trafficking victims for the Thai government to send back to the victim’s nation. A total count of 23 Burmese victims were suspected to be imported into Thailand from Myanmar, with the intention to move them down to the south of Thailand to further import them into Malaysia for human trafficking purposes.
Early in this year, All 73 victims were caught by Thai officials, before the human trafficking group could move them into Malaysia. The victims were then taken into a procedure where they were first given a period to help heal the victims mental health, then each of them had the opportunity to train in a career path that they were interested in. As for the law enforcement side, everything has been sorted out for the victims in Thailand.
Police Major General Surachet Hakpal from the Immigration office stated that this successful return of 73 human trafficking victims is a result from the Thai government’s attempt to speed up the justice procedure, this includes previous investigations on the movements of the human trafficking group and verifying the victim’s nationalities. The Thai government pays just as much attention to saving the victims as to the protection and the elimination of human trafficking.
The Police Major General explained that we realize Thailand if often placed at the start, middle, and end of the human trafficking chain. But we have consistently developed approaches in which to help combat against the crimes of human trafficking. This also includes cooperation from all connected government sectors and working together with other nations on an international level.
