The scandal broke after a mother came forward to complain that her teenage daughter and several other girls had been coerced into the sex trade in Mae Hong Son province. The mother and daughter have asked to remain anonymous out of safety concerns.
“I will spare no one. I have already ordered relevant authorities to bring all wrongdoers to justice,” Prayut said Thursday.
The scandal has cast a shadow over Mae Hong Song Governor Suebsak Iamwichan and several policemen who allegedly bought sexual services from minors.
The accused now face investigations by various agencies.
