The Royal Thai Police are watching for known paedophiles who have been coming over from Australia to pray on young children in Pattaya.
The problem has driven the force to create a special task force to monitor and scrutinise anyone suspected of arriving from Australia, who pose a risk to youngsters.
Although it was the Aussies who were named in the report, it is known that offenders arrive from all over the world with a view of committing crimes of this nature. In fact there are over 180 suspects on the police’s list, who are continually being monitored and the list is growing.
Many people come to Pattaya to meet beautiful ladies, maybe find the woman of their dreams or simply to enjoy the city’s vibrant nightlife but those who come here to abuse kids must be stopped at all costs.
A spokes person for Thailand’s Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Abuse Centre said culprits were using sophisticated methods to avoid detection. Supagon Noja said the internet was a major concern and was being used to target children.
Let us hope that the police and other agencies have a successful 2018 and beyond when it comes to preventing child abuse.
