The suspect, identified only as Nanthanat “Ket”, was recently tracked down to a condo on Bang Na-Trat Road and slapped with several charges, including human trafficking. The 36-year-old has denied all allegations.
According to the unidentified victim, the suspect promised her a job in South Africa for a monthly salary of Bt20,000, and promised to deduct the Bt200,000 fee from her salary in instalments.
However, the victim said she found herself in a brothel, where she was forced to provide sexual services for three months, before she managed to flee. She said there were five other women being held in a similar situation. She also told the press conference that she has personally lodged a complaint with the police bureau’s Anti-Trafficking in Persons Division and named three other women, Dao, Joy and Tim, as co-conspiring with Ket. No details were provided about how these four women were connected or the city in which she was allegedly forced to provide sexual services.
