Committee to consider regulating high-risk entertainment industry
While the investigation into the death of “pretty girl” hostess Thitima Noraphanphiphat, also known as “Lunlabelle”, is still in the evidence collection process, the Thai parliament has organised a brainstorming session to find a way to regulate the “pretty entertainment business” and provide for the welfare and protection of its workers.
The House of Representatives committee on children, women and the disabled will organise the brainstorm session with concerned parties as they seek a solution that meets the needs of women working in high-risk entertainment businesses.
Kan-Kanit Hae-haw Santi, a member of the house committee said members are prepared to bring this case to the committee as it considers studying how to implement measures to protect those working in the sector. These service workers may be required to register with officials, for example, so that the working women – whether pretties, entertainers or coyotes – are legally protected.
