Uzbek women arrested at Nana’s Grace Hotel for human trafficking

Three Uzbek women were arrested by Anti-Human Trafficking Division police at the Grace Hotel in Bangkok’s Nana area for allegedly tricking women into prostitution.

An investigation began when the UN Office of Drugs and Crime tipped AHTD police that women from Uzbekistan were being forced into prostitution at the hotel.

Police came into contact with a victim, alias “Sonya,” who told them that she had been duped by the suspects – Ms. Rotina Nagodjeyiva, 28, Ms.Glolia Botai, 50, and Ms. Aziza Gerbonova, 52 – into believing that they could help her get a job at a restaurant in Russia. The suspects then told her that she owed them money for arranging the job and shipped her off to Thailand to work as a prostitute to pay them back. Sonya said she was usually paid around THB2,000 for sex but that one of the suspects normally took most of the money.

After the initial arrest, police raided a room that the women rented at Omni Tower on Soi Nana where they found other human trafficking victims, passports, mobile phones, and a balance book.

The three suspects denied any charges and said they had been in Thailand since July for leisure, but were taken into custody by the AHTD team for interrogation.

The victims were take to Kredtrakarn Protection and Occupational Development Center, a shelter for human trafficking victims.
