The mother of the teenage girl who reportedly provided sex service to a senior official as part of the Mae Hong Son forced prostitution ring had claimed that she was asked not to pursue charges against the accused official, Federation of Assistant District Chiefs of Thailand chairman Boonyarit Nipawanit said on Friday.

 

She was told that it was for the sake of country’s reputation, he added.

 

Boonyarit said the Nonthaburi-based Tambon Ban Mai Administrative Organisation president would also request that the Department of Special Investigation to take up the investigation into the scandal to ensure justice for all sides. He added that Provincial Police Region 5 investigators seem to be rushing to close the case involving Ban Mai politicians.

 

Boonyarit claimed that the ring reportedly sent four girls to provide sex services at a resort on September 22 last year and sent three girls to provide sex services on September 23.
