Thai woman arrested after 13 year old Burmese girl forced into prostitution

by Tossapol Boonpat

Police have arrested a local Mae Hong Son woman for allegedly procuring a 13 year old girl as a prostitute for sex with a string of local men. Mae Hong Son is west of Chiang Mai in northern Thailand, on the Myanmar border.

Mae Hong Son police say the woman, whose name had not been names at this time, was arrested at a guesthouse after the Shan girl, from a Burmese state in eastern Myanmar, implicated her as the person who forced the girl into the sex trade.

A police source claims the girl, who recently completed Prathom 6 at a local school, claimed she had been forced to have unprotected sex with about 10 men since June, meeting them in a convenience store at a petrol station and accompanying them to the guesthouse on Liang Muang Road.

The disturbing case came to police attention earlier this week after she sought treatment at Sri Sangwan Hospital for gonorrhoea that was so severe in a patient so young that questions were raised by hospital staff.
