Like so many they really don,t care.

I know, they enjoy exuding the stench of their nauseous criminal thoughts hiding behind the walls of anonymity.

All of this going on under the noses of the local BiB !!!!

The local BIBs were probably customers..... until the raid was instigated by outside law enforcement........ and requested by some NGOs (Non Gov't organizations)

I have visited quite a lot of places in the north part of Thailand. Life on the farms and small

villages are, hand to mouth, and there are a lot of poor families. This is the facts, and when some of the teens get to 16 or 17, they go off the farm to try find work that will make money

for them and their fathers and mothers.  I met a few of these young women who had

ID's showing that they were older, and that is how this whole situation can and does

happen. It is Asia, bye the way. It is not where most of the commenters on this

forum are from, try to remember that and that Thailand and other countries

in Asia are a lot different that say countries like Canada, USA, Australia, etc..

Geezer

The youngest worker was just 15 years old.

I am glad they were arrested. 

With these stories, and those about expats being arrested for crimes - I wish there was a way to find out the end result. What happens at the trial, are they convicted, what is the punishment?

Some very high profile cases make the news, but not many.

Some of the karaoke bars/goldfish bowls are owned by the BiB and all donate their monthly brown envelopes to the BiB.

I have just returned from a very poor village in the depths of Issan yesterday. There are thousands of such villages. Most people I met were struggling to survive.

Struggling in what way ?

They may be poor, but they can survive with no much or any money 

Their survival isnt at risk through starving or freezing to death or anything else .

they may be poor , but "struggling to survive" is quite an exaggeration

You weren't there, you didn't see it. Don't comment on something you know nothing about from your home in the UK.

 

"Struggling to survive" was in no way an exaggeration. Heartbreaking.

 

I'm not wealthy and certainly not a soft touch but gave out numerous 100 baht notes, a few 500 baht notes and a couple of 1000 baht notes. Met one 7 year old girl with no parents and being taken care of (badly) by an aunt who was herself struggling. I bought her clothes, toys and took her for days out and fed her well. Would have dearly loved to have brought her back to live with me and give her a better life but just not practical. I cried when I had to leave her. Will visit her again soon. Highly likely she will end up working in a karaoke bar when she's older.

When are you mud slingers at ThaiVisa going to stop referring to victims of sex trafficking as "underage sex workers?" You are allowing low life Pattaya Paedophiles to assign blame to their victims. 

It's funny that you demand accuracy in terminology and then use inaccurate terminology.
