The Child and Women Protection Unit, a division of Region 2 Police, arrested a Cambodian Mother of three who is accused of attempting to sell her 14 year old daughter to foreigners for 80,000 Baht. Complaints by foreign tourists were made to the Police Unit who dedicates the majority of their time to suppressing Human Trafficking operations. The family was tracked down to a market in Soi Boekeow in Central Pattaya and when they spotted Police they attempted to escape. The father of the children was able to escape, leaving the three children and their mother, Mrs. Hieng aged 32 to face officers and the allegations made against them. Mrs. Hieng was arrested and the three children, who also beg for money in local bar complexes, have been taken into care pending further investigations. Initially Mrs. Hieng has been charged with entering Thailand illegally after she was found not to be in possession of a passport.
