Thai women warned over sex trade gangs

- +

Thai women have been warned against being lured into the sex trade in Switzerland following numerous cases of human trafficking. 

The warning was issued yesterday by Senate committee on foreign affairs chairman Phikunkaeo Krairoek during talks between Thai and Swiss authorities and non-governmental groups which investigated 193 cases of sex victims, including Thai nationals, in 2011.

Thai officials knew of the flesh trade and in 2008 launched the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act to crack down on wrongdoers, including those who entice Thai women into working as prostitutes in Switzerland.
