More rigorous measures against human trafficking set for 2016

BANGKOK, 11 January 2016 (NNT) – The Ministry of Interior will be implementing stricter measures against human trafficking activities throughout 2016 with concentrated efforts in risk areas, says the Interior Minister.


The Minister of Interior Gen Anupong Paojinda has revealed that the Ministry will be increasing operations designed to eliminate human trafficking activities in Thailand, executed at the provincial and district levels nationwide.

A special unit for human trafficking elimination, operating under the Department of Provincial Administration, will be established. Acting as a fast response unit, the task force will inspect areas that are suspected to host activities that involve human trafficking, including entertainment venues, bars, hotels, companies, and factories.

The operation will be carried out with special focus on areas with human trafficking risk, such as seaside fishery provinces, provinces with industrial parks, provinces with border crossing facilities, and popular tourism provinces.

Authorities will ensure cooperation from the local public by encouraging public participation and surveillance for human trafficking. The general public can report suspicious activities to the Damrongtham Centers in all provinces, while government officials will undergo training courses to enhance their anti-trafficking operations in accordance to international standards.

Meanwhile, the government is working to solve the nationality and status issue of certain groups to reduce the risk of human trafficking among them.

The Ministry of Interior will be working to carry out the government’s anti trafficking policy to yield concrete outcomes, and to regain public trust on the protection of their rights and freedom that shall not be violated by any other person.

Until arrests are made at high levels, the world knows Thailand is not serious about this.

It is a poor reflection on a country that promotes the beauty of the Kingdom for tourists, yet underneath the rigmarole, there is an underworld of filth and sadly this will not alter greatly till Thailand is made to clean up its act with possibly sanctions or O/Sea's accounts frozen , aimed at the Hi So, not the people.........................coffee1.gif .

Taking a bargirl to your hotelroom is in fact also human traficking, with the Thai style problem solving you can expect anything.

This won't go down at all well on this forum but you've pointed up a very salient point.

Gonna... gonna... gonna... etc. etc. etc.

The government seems to think that the overseas watchers will be happy with more promises. I sincerely hope that they are proved wrong. The ONLY way that action will be taken on human trafficking is if the country is hurt either in the wallet or through BIG loss of face.

The world isn't watching and no one really cares. If that was the case, all seafood caught and processed by exploited labour would no longer be allowed into the EU. Japan and China have never cared as it doesn't impact their business interests. The Russians? LOL. Who? The Arabs? Not likely. The North Americans? Nope. Otherwise sanctions would have been imposed long ago.

Thailand can do as it pleases.

"A special unit for human trafficking elimination"

Don't need a special unit. Just have ISOC stop trafficking. Or eliminate ISOC.
