Following investigations by teachers at a school in Nakorn Sawan police have busted a 16 year old boy for human trafficking and six men who bought sexual services with school boys.
But there are thought to be a staggering total of 150 people who bought sex from the victims.
All of the eight victims are under 15 with some under 13.
The investigation was a joint effort by a task force of tourist police, 191, military and local officers headed by crime buster Maj Gen Surachet “Big Joke” Hakpal.
Arrested on a warrant for supplying the boys was “A” a 16 year named in a warrant from the juvenile and family court.
It is alleged that he used a Facebook site that referred to the boys who were available as “Kids not interested in the world” (dek mai sonjai loke).
Teachers at the Muang district school had become suspicious as there was a rise in truancy and several of the pupils seemed to have a lot of money.
A school investigation found out that a group of boys were being sold for sex and they discovered the name of the 16 year old ringleader who ran the Facebook page.
A husband and wife helped out but these were not mentioned as being arrested in the Daily News story yesterday.
Named as people who allegedly had sex with the boys and arrested on warrants were the following: Khwanchai Phromthong, 30, Yingsak Prasertsong, 61, Printhorn Sirijoy, 31, Suphot Wondee, 44, Winai Buawat, 34 and Aneke Butrsing, 34.
They have been charged with having sex with minors under the age of 15 and 13.
Daily News reported there were believed to be 150 people paying for sex with the school children. – Daily News
