- +

The Justice Ministry and the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) say they believe Thailand will be removed from the United States' human trafficking watch list and upgraded to a better ranking due to progress in dealing with the matter. 

Acting permanent secretary for justice Charnchao Chaiyanukij yesterday said he was confident the US would see Thailand intended to tackle human trafficking and the country would be removed from the watch list and its status upgraded.

The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) has issued a policy on trafficking of women, children and migrant labour, and assigned harsh punishments against those involved, Mr Charnchao said.
