Foreign Ministry, NCPO to set up commission to explain human trafficking issue


BANGKOK, 7 August 2014  –The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) have jointly discussed setting up a working commission to clarify issues surrounding human trafficking. 

The Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs Sihasak Phuangketkeow also took the opportunity to deny an accusation related by the spokesperson of the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) who expressed concern that a woman detained by the NCPO claimed that she was injured by an official.

Since many parties may receive incomplete data, the NCPO is initiating a working commission to supervise, and focus on complaints and provide an immediate response.
