A man and a woman were arrested Friday for allegedly forcing a 16-year-old girl into prostitution, the Anti-Human Trafficking Division (AHTD) said.
Pranee Banthueng, 45, from Sukhothai, and Thawatchai Srisuk, 21, from Ayutthaya, were arrested at a hotel in Bangkok's Pomprap Sattruphai district.
Prior to their arrest, The Hub, a non-profit organisation on child protection, helped the girl to file a complaint against Ms Pranee and Mr Thawatchai for allegedly forcing her into prostitution, detaining her, and providing her with illicit drugs, said Pol Maj Gen Chawalit Sawaengpheuch, chief of the AHTD.
