Interior Ministry deputy permanent secretary Prayoon Rattanasenee said he will question Mae Hong Son Governor Suebsak Iamwichan today about allegations of his involvement in child prostitution.
“I’ve come to Mae Hong Son to investigate the matter,” Prayoon told reporters on Thursday.
A woman has accused Suebsak of paying her daughter, a minor at the time, for sex after she was coerced into the flesh trade.
The ministry has given an investigating committee, which includes Prayoon, 30 days to verify or dismiss the allegations against Suebsak. As of press time it had already spoken to several people possibly involved in the matter.
