Three Cambodian victims of human trafficking jumped into the Chao Phraya River early yesterday to escape from a fishing boat, where they said they were held against their will.

Two people are still missing, but the third filed a police complaint yesterday, which led to the rescue of six others from Cambodia on the boat.

Police boarded the vessel, named Mahatthana or KM Beksa, yesterday morning. It was docked behind Sripitak Frozen Food in Muang district and about to set sail for the Indonesian Sea.

They found six Cambodians allegedly detained on board by captain Phailin Phromsuwan, 44, and his subordinates Thananan Yothachai, 32, and Adichat Saetang, 24.

The three were charged with illegal detention, smuggling alien workers into Thailand and human trafficking.

The Cambodian who lodged the complaint with police, identified only as Seu, 23, said he and eight other Cambodians had worked on a sugarcane farm in Sa Kaew before being lured by a Thai man, Suthin Teeram, to get a lift on his pick-up truck to find construction work.

They arrived at the dock on Monday evening to 'just stay' overnight, but soon realised they were being detained. At 4am, Seu and two others jumped into the river, he said.

Seu said he was rescued by a taxi driver, who took him to police shortly after.
