Thai anti-human trafficking police have arrested two men for allegedly luring young boys into making pornographic content, which was allegedly distributed to customers via a Line group for a fee.

According to the police, the two suspects, 20-year-old “Lakkhana” and 19-year-old “Netnapa”, also had more than 260,000 and over 100,000 Twitter followers respectively.

Police allege that the two would release porn videos and audio teasers via their accounts, with an invitation for those who are interested in viewing the full videos to join their exclusive Line group for a membership fee of 399 baht.

Police said that one of the videos features four young boys, who are believed to have been duped by the two suspects into the filming of the pornography, and they sought warrants for Lakkhana’s and Netnapa arrests.

Members of the public who may have information about this illegal business are advised to call the anti-human trafficking police on 1191 or via the Facebook page of the Anti-Human Trafficking Division.
