The Department of Special Investigation (DSI), military and local officers arrested Boonsap Amornratanasiri, 55, aka “Pa Kob”, for alleged human trafficking. The suspect worked as a supervisor of the women.

Col Songsak Raksaksakul, DSI deputy chief, said most of the women had no ID card and are believed to be migrants trafficked in from neighbouring countries.

“The venue has lawful permission to operate but initial findings suggest that several women here were allegedly forced into prostitution while others were sent to work in Malaysia,” said Col Songsak.

The case concerns a network across Myanmar, Malaysia and Thailand and “is believed to involve human trafficking”, DSI chief Phaisit Wongmuang.

An initial interrogation found one of the women to be an underage Myanmar girl who claimed to have been working at the parlour since she was 12, Col Phaisit said.

Another six suspects face arrest warrants.

Nr 6 was a high ranking Official of the Thai Revenue Department. Sure he was only a 'regular' to check the bookkeeping. hehehe.

Names of these 6...

Or it could be that the one guy is the fall guy and everything else is hushed up and no questions as to why a "well known" "massage" (read brothel) parlour under the police's nose for years nobody does anything.  I wonder who got upset by it and decided it was time to go in?

It could be that Police office arrests are to follow?

Nothing new under the sun in Asia.
Just 80 only? And a Myanmar girl working there since she was 12?
Under the eyes of the Bangkok Royal Thai Police?
That needs some investigation from the Prime Minister's office..
Reforms, remember?

Daily we get confirmed that reform of the RTP is the most important matter in Thailand.
