BP: Sex procurers turn to hilltr

              Sex procurers turn
              to hilltribe women

              Procurers are targeting young hilltribe women because they are
              not Thai citizens and are not protected by the law, a Democrat
              MP pointed out yesterday.

              Because they do not have citizenship these women cannot find a
              decent job, said Ladawan Wongsriwong, MP for Phayao.

              It is a violation of basic human rights, said Ms Ladawan, adding
              that she will ask the Interior Ministry to look into the problem
              and if possible to grant Thai citizenship to these women.
