17-year old Piti* was being sold on Twitter, but today she is free. This is a reason to celebrate.
TER’s investigative team in Thailand spent four months gathering evidence, building the case, and working with police partners. They were determined to not only stop Piti’s exploitation but were working towards the arrest of her trafficker on human trafficking charges. And it worked.
The mission with the police was successful!
Piti now has access to services through the Social Welfare Department and can begin a new chapter in her life.
Her pimp is facing up to 20 years in prison.
Thank you for continuing to show up for the most vulnerable. Piti’s life will never be the same because of it.
In honor of Piti,
Your Friends at TER
