There aren’t many black freelance hookers from Africa you will come across in Pattaya but you can always spot a number of mostly Ugandan women at the southern end of the beach promenade near Walking Street.
Now two young women from Uganda, named as Miss Forsia and Miss Dollar, who were lured into the sex trade in Pattaya filed a complaint against two fellow countrywomen at Pattaya Police Station.
The suspects, identified as Marie Nagawa, 29, and Rosemary Nebwiri, 31, had apparently paid for the victim’s air tickets to Thailand (it remains unknown what they had been promised and why they actually boarded the flight to Bangkok) and then forced the women to sell sexual services on Pattaya beach in order to repay their debts.
The story sheds a bit of a light on how Ugandan women come to work in the sex trade in Pattaya.
There’s no shortage of Russian quality tourists (sic) visiting Pattaya it seems. A 44-year-old Russian holidaymaker named as Mr Grigoli Korolkov was now caught by a shop owner in South Pattaya after the foreigner had stolen a watch from his store, as he claimed, just to “have a look at it.”
Here’s a bizarre story that may or may not come as a surprise to some readers. Two foreigners, one an American national, the other one an Indian national, have complained that they were recently detained for drunk driving in two separate cases and had their mobile phones confiscated by the police.
While that’s business as usual, both men allege that officers did not return their phones to them after they were released from detention upon their appearance in court and probably paying a hefty fine.
