Criminal Court begins first trial of Victoria Secret human trafficking

The Criminal Court on Monday (Apr 9) began the first trial of nine suspects accused of human trafficking over the raid of Victoria Secret massage parlour where over a hundred of Myanmar female migrant workers were rescued by the combined force of officials from the Department of Special Investigation and soldiers.

The suspects included Boonsap Amornratanasiri, alias Pa Kob, 55, or Sia Kob, the manager of the massage parlour was arrested in the raid on January 12.

All were charged for human trafficking and for prostitution trade.

At the hearing the court read the charges in the suit filed by the state prosecutor and asked whether they would plead guilty or deny.

The suit said the nine suspects and others still at large had collaborated in committing the crimes since October 2016 to January 12 this year by luring 113 Myanmar female workers aged from 15 years old to prostitution at Victoria Secret.

However all the suspects denied the human trafficking charge and stated they would defend themselves in the court.

The court then scheduled June 4 for both the DSI and the defendants to review their evidences before the next trial session begins.
