12 Lao women rescued from prostitution at Thai-Malaysia border

Officials raided a karaoke bar in Narathiwat’s Sungai Kolok district on Monday night and rescued 12 Lao women from prostitution.

The raid against the Relax Pub in the border town was carried out at 8.30pm by officials from the Provincial Administration Department and Department of Special Investigation, as well as staff of an international non-governmental organisation.

Two of the 12 Lao women are suspected to be under 18 years old, so they were sent for a bone mass check at the provincial hospital to determine their real age.
