PHITSANULOK: Local police have detained a woman who allegedly created a paid live sex show group on Line, which also involved a couple and their three-year-old son, while legal action awaits about 100 viewers.
Pathumporn “Aye” Mangkornchaiya, 27, was arrested in the central province of Ratchaburi on Thursday evening and sent to the northern province of Phitsanulok early Friday morning.
At the Phitsanulok police station, the woman, who covered her face with a face mask, was charged with human trafficking, computer crime and violation of the child protection law.
Pol Col Songpol Sangkasem, chief of the Phitsanulok police station, said police would question the woman in a bid to arrest another suspect who allegedly hired a family for the live show.
He also said that about 100 viewers in the chat group would face legal action.
The couple who performed the show with the three-year-old boy were taken into custody earlier.
Last week, the 25-year-old mother was arrested in Phitsanulok and her son is in the care of child welfare officials. It was reported that the mother, a fruit vendor, received 400 baht for the show involving the child and her new husband.
The husband surrendered on Monday. The parents were charged with human trafficking, computer crime, child molestation and promoting misconduct by a child.
