Thai CDC Helps To Bust Human Traffickers

I serve as a board member of the local nonprofit, Thai Community Development Center which has recently garnered headlines for helping the federal government indict Mordechai Orian of the labor recruiting company Global Horizons, Inc. and five other individuals with conspiracy to commit forced labor and servitude. If found guilty, they could face up to 70 years in prison. Thai CDC has spent the past seven years bringing up the case to the Feds, which is now considered the largest human trafficking case in U.S. history. The case has been tracked by the U.S. Department of Justice, The U.S. Department of Labor, The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI.

Thai CDC had a press conference at the Wat Thai temple in North Hollywood, which was covered by the Los Angeles Times this week.

Kudos to everyone at Thai CDC for their diligence! Hopefully the traffickers will see prison bars on their horizon!
