Via: City News – Chiang Mai

Prior to the arrest, police received a report from Chiang Mai Shelter for Children and Families that two Burmese women had been taking children to the Night Bazaar in order to beg. Police found Maetu carrying an infant called Seejoaw (2), begging for money on the pavement near Pantip Plaza. Nearby Wuimah was found holding a baby, Netului (10 months), sitting on the pavement and begging.

Wuimah told police that the children were hers. She said that before she came to Thailand Maetu had been to her village and explained how her children could be rented for begging purposes in Thailand.

She said she had been promised 500,000 kyat but had not received the money.

“When we talked with the children from Tuesday’s raid, we found that THEY  WERE FORCED TO TAKE A DRUG TO MAKE THEM DAZED (see photo),” she told The Irrawaddy on Wednesday. “We believe the suspects intoxicated the children because their dazed appearance could be used to cause people to feel pity for them. When the case is over, we will send the children back to their own country.”
