Bangkok Post - - NATIONAL -

PATTAYA: Twelve Ugan­dan women were ar­rested yes­ter­day on sus­pi­cion of il­le­gally sell­ing sex in this ma­jor tourist des­ti­na­tion.

They were ap­pre­hended by im­mi­gra­tion po­lice along with of­fi­cers of a spe­cial op­er­a­tions unit at­tached to the lo­cal po­lice.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the women posed as tourists ply­ing their trade on Pattaya’s Walk­ing Street, one of the busiest tourist spots in the pop­u­lar sea­side re­sort town, caus­ing an­noy­ance to passers-by.

They were taken to the Pattaya po­lice sta­tion and fined for roam­ing around and so­lic­it­ing. Com­plaints were made with the po­lice by for­eign and lo­cal tourists that the women were try­ing to per­suade them to sleep with them.
