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.
