PARLIAMENT VOTED overwhelmingly yesterday to introduce harsher punishments for human traffickers, including life imprisonment and the death penalty in cases where their victims had died.

The National Legislative Assembly (NLA) voted to amend the country's Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act in the third reading.
The changes will allow prosecutors to seek the death penalty and fines of up to Bt400,000 for those convicted of trafficking offences, Police General Chatchawan Suksomjit said.
