A woman, who is allegedly selling her 16 year old niece to foreigners for the purposes of sex has been arrested by Region 2 Police. Officers from the Child and Women Protection Unit based at Banglamung Police Station organized an undercover operation late on Wednesday Night outside the Carrefour Shopping Center in Central Pattaya. An operative, armed with marked bank notes, handed over 2,000 Baht to Khun Samien aged 35 who promised to take him to a room where the girl was waiting. Instead, Police moved in and escorted her to the Porn House Apartments in Soi Arunothai 2, close to the shopping Center where the 16 year old girl was waiting. Khun Samien was taken to Pattaya Police Station and later charged with prostitution offences after she explained that she used to work in the bar industry here in Pattaya but returned to her home in Satgeow Province to work in the construction industry. She recently returned to Pattaya with her Niece with a plan to offer the girl to foreigners. This was reportedly the first time she had attempted to offer her niece to foreigners. The parents of the girl were contacted and summoned to the Police Station to explain why their daughter was involved in this illegal activity.
