I'm just curious.  I knew Ken and am shocked by this whole story.  I keep checking back here to see if there is any further news on his case.

Some people in authority have a talent for making premature comments / announcements thats just their style

The time this thread is taking to progress makes me think its not as clear cut as some people would have us believe

Thats just a guess as I dont know for sure

Fuss about nothing. Anytime you cross the bridge from Maesai you're pestered by touts pimping for brothels. I've even had it while shopping with the wife and kids! Looking at this bloke's advert it seems he was looking to make an inordinately fat percentage on the going rate by holding the hands of punters too nervous to look after themselves. Maybe he even had a commission thing going like some sort of glorified sahmlaw driver or whatever. In any event, it's not exactly 'running a sex-ring', and to read some of the posts on here, you'd think the guy was a cross between Charles Manson and the Devil. But the mob will always find justification to start looking for stones...

Held without charges for months. Most unusual. Even the most violent  and savage of murderers are released on bail. I have the impression that either he is not willing to grease his release or the US consulate is not helping him.  All very curious. Sometimes innocent people get jammed up, which is why I have refrained from commenting until now.

Any any thing new on this guy (Ken), is he out on bail, been sentenced yet or have any formal charges yet? I read through all of the post form the first one to here and nothing has been confirmed as to the charges yet. Some one mentioned that he had visa violation that he was being held on, any info on that.

 

I met him several times back when i use to live in CR and although he seemed to have a bit of quirky  personalty, he seemed to be a good guy over all. Just hope that he is getting good legal help. Many farang get rail roaded and that would be very unfortunate.

 

Any update that is constructive would be appreciated. I already read all the negative judgmental comments on here and don't care to hear any more of that abusive comment as a reply to my question.

 

Thanks in advance for any updates.

Foreign garbage, maybe?

Do some research in, for example, Craigslist.

Plenty on offer, even "guided" sextours into Birma, organised by a local group with local guides.

I`ve seen those ads and also seen the (OP) guy`s ad on craigslist, he was advertising his services for several years. His ad did not directly offer women for sex, he claimed that he knew where available women were at and for a price would be your sex tour guide.

 

The women involved were already prostitutes and his part was to introduce them to Farang customers.

 

I would not exactly describe this as human trafficking, but more as a pimping operation. Now he`s out of action, I`m sure there will be others taking his place and soon it will be business as usual.

And you need to question as to why people would need to go across to Myanmar for sex with females , considering that there are females on the Thai side of the border offering services .

   Why would customers need a guide to find a female in Myanmar and why not just get on with it on the Thai side ? 

   Ken also posted here that "Myanmar is just like Thailand used to be"

Make of that what you want .

   The undercover Thai police also encouraged Ken to bring underage girls across the border .

  His ads also advertised "petite" girls .

The advert didnt say "minors" but it said "cute, young , petite girls ".

Why would people need an "agency" to find regular prostitutes ?

Human trafficking is not limited to minors. Even adults or males can be trafficked.
