BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, BRUNEI : Thailand and Brunei will ramp up efforts to combat human trafficking and prostitution after an increase in reports of Thai women being lured into the illegal flesh trade in the sultanate. 

Thai ambassador to Brunei, Apichart Phetcharatana, said the countries would sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on human trafficking before the end of the year. The agreement will be signed by the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security and the Royal Brunei Police Force.

"Officials from both countries are working out the details of the MoU. If it is signed, it will be used as a guideline for them to work together to suppress human trafficking and prostitution in Brunei," Mr Apichart said.
