The three were Nin Wai Siu, 48, a Hong Kong Chinese man, and two Chinese women, Song Qianli, 32, and Rou Li, 27, according to Pol Maj Gen Thitawat Suriyachai, commander of the Cybercrime Investigation Division 4, in his capacity as deputy chief of a police team for the investigation of sexual abuse cases against children and women.

The three were wanted for alleged human-trafficking and other related charges, reports the Bangkok Post.

The warrants followed a police search on Saturday of a house at Natcha Housing Estate in central Pattaya in tambon Nong Prue of Bang Lamung district and the detention of Wang Gang, 45, the owner of the house, for questioning in connection with the case.

An investigation began after the Kyrgyz woman, Anara Seitaleva, 30, plunged to her death from the seventh floor of a condominium building on Khao Thapaya road in tambon Nong Prue. She was initially believed to have committed suicide.

Three days previously, on Sept 13, Seitaleva had filed a complaint with Pattaya police, saying she had been contacted and offered a job in Pattaya by a Chinese couple she met through a Kyrgyz friend. She was promised B20,000 a month for a job related to tourism.

She arrived in Thailand on July 15 and was met at Suvarnabhumi airport by a Chinese man. After staying overnight in Bangkok, the man took her to Chiang Rai in the North. From Chiang Rai, she was taken to Laos via the immigration checkpoint in Chiang Saen district.

In Laos, the Chinese man took her passport and forced her to work for a call centre gang, but she was unable to do the job. She was then forced into prostitution.

Seitaleva said she was filmed while having sex with clients to blackmail her.

On July 27, the Chinese man brought her back to Thailand. They returned to Bangkok where she was forced to continue selling sex.

She managed to escape from the gang on Sept 11 and took a taxi to Pattaya, where she sought help from a German man and stayed in his condominium room.

Seitaleva fell to her death from the seventh floor of the condominium on Sept 16.

The German man told police that Seitaleva was a friend of his girlfriend.

Here a good example how citizens who ask for help  from RTP are turned away. Showing so clear that many RTP's not take their oath to 'Serve & Protect' serious. A oath that seems to have less value to them than 1 Satang.

Amazing how many "fell" to their deaths in Thailand. But no matter how suspicious the death may appear nothing is ever done. The perfect way to kill people. A good friend of mine died from a "balcony fall" in Bangkok on 28-Aug but it was not reported anywhere in any news or media. It was daytime and he was sober. Inquiries about it directed to several Bangkok news editors were ...

This story stinks from top to bottom. I pity people that get caught up in trafficking, especially here, where the police and officials have been involved with trafficking in the past, and where police would rather take payoff to turn a blind eye than to do the right thing and help. This poor girl went to the police, who did nothing for her, now she's dead.
