CHIANGRAI TIMES –The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has asked Kristie Anne Kenney the US ambassador to Thailand to forward Thailand’s progress report on its fight against human trafficking to the US State Department.

Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs Sihasak Phuangketkeow has invited US Ambassador to Thailand Kristie Anne Kenney to a meeting during which he informed the latter of the steps Thailand has taken in its fight against human trafficking.

Mr Sihasak also presented the report of progress on the operation to the US envoy so that she would forward it to the US State Department’s Human Trafficking Office. The report also contains an operational plan Thailand is taking to suppress human trafficking during 2012-2013.

The plan encompasses seven points to be promoted, such as effective separation of victims in flesh trade, stepped-up efforts in investigations and legal actions against state officials involved in human trafficking, leniency given to alien victims to stay temporarily in the country and undergo occupational trainings, and sustainable measures to protect alien labour.
