A 19-year-old man was arrested for trying to pimp out underage girls via a smartphone messaging app.

Supachai Kokhum was taken into custody June 26 and charged with human trafficking, allegedly for running a Line app group chat called “Swinging Mapa”, which offered up underage girls to Thais and foreign tourists at 2,000-3,000 baht each.

Police set up a sting to procure the services of a 16-year-old girl for group sex and Supachai supplied his bank account details and furnished a Soi 17 address where the tryst would go down.

Police were waiting when he showed up with the girl.

Supachai also faces charges of luring minors into prostitution, employing underage workers and running an illegal business.

Police said he confessed to all the charges.

    He is under the age of 20 or “age of license” in Thailand. Will he be charged as an adult for child trafficking or given a small fine? This would be a great story to give “the rest of” when it is known.

    If no supply no perverts. Of course sex performed by adults on unready young people of both genders has been happening unpunished forever. It is by and large an anonymous transaction in cash with a “burner” phone used. The way to cure this problem would be for the educational system to actually teach and the manufacturing, service and retail sectors to actually pay a wage. As long as “low so” Thais are considered slaves by their fellow countrymen this will not change. If the young man is even of moderate family means this “youthful indiscretion” will be overlooked. That outcome is what I expect which is why I asked for the rest of the story. The “Red Bull” affair is instructive if you do not know it.
