After dusk, the seafront in Pattaya — located around kilometers 93 miles southeast of Bangkok — gets filled with a buzzing crowd in which families are almost indistinguishable from potential sex workers, while neon signs flash on clubs that double up as brothels in small alleyways. Minor victims of abuse or trafficking can be often seen begging or soliciting on the streets, but go unnoticed by many of the visitors.
The boy, who hailed from another province and received half of the money earned, was rescued and now stays at the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Abuse Center, headed by Supagon for the past 11 years. Currently, the activist is investigating the case of a year-old who is possibly being forced to beg by a relative in an apparent case of child trafficking.
Supagon admits that he has seen a decline in child trafficking, but adds that cases of child abuse within the family have increased. The center also continues to host victims of trafficking from Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar.
In August, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime said in a report that Thailand was a major place of origin, transit and destination for children trafficked for sexual motives by regional trafficking networks.
The UN agency also highlighted that nearly half of the victims of human trafficking in Thailand are local citizens who are taken from one place to another or sent abroad. The report said Thailand had made progress in the fight against human trafficking in the fishing sector by strengthening checks on fishing boats, increasing arrests of traffickers and strictly implementing anti-trafficking law.
