Wan Jo, a Cambodian transgender woman, was arrested and faces child-prostitution, human-trafficking and computer-crime charges following the Aug. 13 raid.

Officers surround the room where the illicit sex parties took place.

A foreign NGO tipped off the ministry’s Department of Provincial Administration about a Twitter user offering underage girls for sex and organizing sex parties in Sa Kaeo, Prachinburi, Bangkok and surrounding provinces.

Special Operations Unit officers set up a party with Wan over Twitter with the Cambodian sending a menu often girl photos. Officers then stormed the Le Min Resort in Sa Kaeo’s Muang District that night.

Three Thai girls ages 16-17 were found at the resort. The 29-year-old Wan was charged with sex trafficking minors, pimping children over age 15 but under 18, encouraging lewd behavior by children, and violations of the Computer Crime Act.
