A woman who kept two Thai prostitutes as slaves and threatened them with exposing nude photos if they tried to run away has been found guilty. Rungnapha 'Lisa' Kanbut was found guilty by a NSW District Court jury on Wednesday of two counts each of intentionally possessing a slave, exercising powers of ownership over a slave and dealing with the proceeds of crime. The two Thai women, who voluntarily came to Australia from Asia to do sex work, lived with Kanbut and her husband at their home in and respectively. The Crown alleged the year-old 'exercised complete control' over the women, but Kanbut's barrister contended the pair instead had an 'economic relationship' with her. The two women lived with Kanbut, 57, and her husband at their Sydney home in and respectively, the court heard.

They would also receive visas. Life in cities like Chicago would be rosy, they were told, and they would be able to help support their families back home. Law enforcement authorities on Thursday announced federal sex-trafficking conspiracy charges against 21 people, part of what they described as one of the most elaborate and extensive sex-trafficking operations they had seen. The operation had gone on for at least eight years, netted tens of millions of dollars, and involved hundreds of women who were shuttled among American cities, sometimes every few weeks, the officials said. According to the eight-count indictment, the operation was intricate for its organization.

21 Across U.S. Are Indicted in ‘Modern-Day Sex Slave’ Ring
A Thai woman who was kept as a slave has told a Sydney court her 'heart is broken' and she 'will live with the scars' for the rest of her life. The woman, who can't be named for legal reasons, wept quietly as an interpreter read out her victim impact statement at a sentencing hearing for Rungnapha 'Lisa' Kanbut, who kept her and another Thai woman as slaves. Kanbut, 57, was found guilty by a NSW District Court jury in May of two counts each of intentionally possessing a slave, exercising powers of ownership over a slave and dealing with the proceeds of crime.
The move came after US authorities indicted 38 people in relation to the offence. They say that a sex trafficking ring lured Thai women to the US with promises of a better life, then forced them to work as prostitutes until they could pay off often insurmountable bondage debts. Acting US Attorney Gregory Brooker said the women were rotated through several prostitution houses around the US, forced to work long hours and have sex with strangers -- "even if the men were abusive", he added. The authorities charged 21 people -- 10 Thais and 11 US nationals -- with various counts, including conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, sex trafficking by use of force or threats, conspiracy to engage in money laundering and operating an unlicensed money transmitting business. The charges against them were filed at a federal court in Saint Paul, Minnesota, on Thursday.
