Thailand’s anti-human trafficking police have been ordered to investigate a Facebook page which was allegedly offering an adoption service for parents who cannot afford to raise their baby, said Social Development and Human Security Minister Chuti Krairiksh today (Tuesday).

 

He said that, although the web page has now been shut down, the anti-human trafficking police will continue their investigation to track down the perpetrators who ran service on several social media platforms which, he added, is illegal even though the parents of the baby had given it up for adoption.

 

The minister explained that biological parents of a baby can give their baby to others for adoption, but they are be required to follow a legal process to make sure that the baby is not trafficked.
