Another blow to Thailand

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Another blow to Thailand

Post by phuketrichard » Sat Jun 21, 2014 10:33 am

Thailand downgraded to be among worst human trafficking centres

BANGKOK: -- Kingdom may face sanctions after downgrade; Malaysia also 'shamed'

Thailand was yesterday downgraded to the lowest level in the US State Department's annual Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report - a move that could trigger sanctions by the United States.

After years of warnings, the US named and shamed Thailand, Malaysia and Venezuela, dumping them at the bottom of a list of countries accused of failing to tackle modern-day slavery, AFP reported from Washington.

Thailand had been on Tier 2 watchlist for four years for poor law enforcement before it dropped to the lowest rung - Tier 3.

Cant be blamed on the coup It really shows what the Thaksin regime has done for Thailand's image over the years.

The Yingluck administration got downgraded the last time and vowed to make changes..... they did nothing.... Why?

Because there was no money to be made from it for ministers.... that's why.

I read this earlier and checked out the report. Saw Cambodia tier 2

I wanted to check the data collection methodology and how they reached the conclusions but haven't yet.

Do you think Thailand really cares ? They will just deny it again.

hard to say whether they are more corrupt than lying sacks of shit.
Wait, one kinda blends into the other don't it?
Goddamn SHAME it's such a nice place with such kickass tasty food.
I'll go some...but I have no desire to live there til I die anymore. Might as well stay in the U$A. Same lies, same corruption.
