Thai Prostitution Ring Busted in Germany in Biggest Raids Ever

Body_Worn_Camera_Magdeburg_Police (1)Germany’s Interior Minister applauded Germany’s federal police after busting an organized crime ring that trafficked Thai women and Trans women into Germany for prostitution. The raids that took place in over 60 brothels in 12 out of 16 states were one of the biggest in their history.

Thailand  Separation Lawyers provides advice on international and local divorce proceedings. 

Trans women are particularly targeted into trafficking for Germany’s sex industry,  says Alexander Badle from Frankfurt’s prosecution office. Both Trans and Thai women are lured by traffickers on false conditions of a better life and pay when in reality they are forced to work off their “smuggling fees” to their respected massage parlors, adds Badle.

Though prostitution is legal in Germany, it is heavily taxed and regulated. The core group of people suspected of leading the crime ring face not only forced prostitution charges but tax evasion as well says Badle.

Thailand is quite open minded when it comes to Trans people however when it comes to legislation, they have yet to recognize the third sex, therefore leaving Trans women with no choice but to fall into the pits of “social, economic and legal margins”.
