    Eighty Thai women forced into prostitution in Switzerland

    Eighty Thai women forced into prostitution in Switzerland



    Library image

    Some 80 women from Thailand were trafficked to Switzerland and forced into prostitution from 2011 to 2014, an investigation by Switzerland’s public prosecutor has concluded.

    The ringleader, a 57-year-old Thai woman, was arrested at Zurich airport in October 2014, Bern police said in a statement on Monday.

    Finally concluded after several years’ work, the investigation found that since 2011 the ringleader had organized and paid for some 80 woman, mainly from poor families in Thailand, to come to Switzerland often “under false pretences”.

    The women were taken to various different brothels in the cantons of Bern, Solothurn, Lucerne, Basel-City, St Gallen and Zurich and then forced to work as prostitutes to pay off their “travel debt”.

    They were told to give all their earnings to the brothel managers, who kept half for themselves. The other half went towards paying off their ‘debt’ of between 25,000 and 30,000 francs, said police.

    The women were strictly monitored and could not move about freely outside the brothel.

    The 57-year-old ringleader is currently in prison, said police.

    do the swiss seize all the assets of the 57 year old thai woman and the managers as proceeds of crime ?

    do the women get compensated as victims of crime ?

    The ringleader was probably one of those Thai brides that came looking for the gold paved pavements with her Swiss husband.

    And found that this is not the land of silk and money. And the locals shunned her. She will have promised the same to those poor girls.

    Patsy think about it love. She did not walk out in the rice fields of Buri Ram or Yasothon and say "Hey you young ladies picking rice, do you want jobs in reception in European hotels?"

    Sadly she knew where to recruit. Those girls in the photos were not in the rice fields last year. But she did deceive them for sure. This report seems to prove to me the Swiss press does have a tabloid press.

    That's not them bud.

    "Library image " under it kinda gives it away.

    Just putting the cursor over it, 'Saigon Hookers' pops up.

    So what were the false pretences?

    Rocket scientists?

    It's an unfortuante story but I never believe for a minute that these lovely 'good' or 'different' girls didn't know what they were getting into.

    Maybe they weren't aware that this Thai 'ringleader' would have them restricted their movements

    This Thai ringleader obviously is 'big mafia' as Thais say. The girls probably were queuing up for this oppourtunity. Nobody forced them on the plane.
    Imagine the spiel she gave to these girls

    I'd reckon the girls would still feel rather uneasy upon their return to Bangkok

    That's a lot of cash to simply write off
