    Thailand - Mass grave found near camp with suspected links to human trafficking


    Twenty-six bodies exhumed at a mass grave in southern Thailand near a camp with suspected links to human trafficking bear no signs of violent death, police said on Sunday, following initial forensic examinations at the site.

    [...]

    The discovery of the camp was a sharp reminder of the extent of human trafficking in Thailand and comes as the Southeast Asian country makes efforts to improve its record in fighting the trade.

    [...]

    Police are focusing their investigation on a trafficking network linked to the camp, said Police Colonel Anuchon Chamat, deputy commander of Nakorn Si Thammarat Provincial Police.

    [...]

    Last year, Thailand was downgraded to the U.S. State Department's lowest category - or Tier 3 - in its annual Trafficking in Persons Report, which assesses how governments around the world have performed in fighting human trafficking.

    I wonder if they DNA test the remains and check them against missing persons all over the world. I would imagine that's a massive undertaking but I can think of a few cases where trafficking was suspected. Even if they can't find the people responsible, maybe those families could get some closure <3

    (CNN)Thai police said Tuesday they had found a second camp used for human trafficking and had discovered three trafficking victims hiding in it.

    The camp is close to one discovered last week in which Thai authorities said they found the remains of at least 26 people along with one survivor who had to be hospitalized.

    Police are interviewing the three victims from the second camp.
