National Police continue to target human-trafficking cases


BANGKOK, 26 June 2015 – Police are continuing the search for the remaining 63 fugitives in human-trafficking cases, as the kingdom works to repair its international reputation.

The National Police Force is holding additional talks on the fugitives on June 29. They will consider transferring human-trafficking cases to be tried under the Criminal Court.

Police have recently issued another 30 arrest warrants for suspects in the trafficking of Rohingya and other migrants. The details and evidence in the case were handed over to the Office of the Attorney-General earlier this month for prosecution and other legal action. The Attorney-General is expected to press charges against those involved, on July 24.

The National Police also addressed a claim that the US’s downgrade of Thailand’s status last year in its TIP report to Tier 3 resulted from the authorities’ lack of transparency, insisting no official was involved or benefited from human-trafficking in the country.
