Broker firm cleared of trafficking

Workers complained that the company sent them to the Middle East with incomplete information, and accused it of human trafficking.

A labour brokerage firm responsible for sending 61 workers to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and accused of defrauding them did not commit human trafficking, according to the Immigration Bureau.

Bureau deputy commissioner Itthipol Itthisaranachai said an initial investigation found the firm did not engage in human trafficking involving the 61 workers.

However, the bureau will forward the case to the Anti-Trafficking In Persons Division for further investigation.
