Thai woman confesses to lying about ‘organ harvesting’ gang kidnapping

Woman confession
  • The Thai woman who was allegedly saved from a Chinese “organ harvesting gang” in Cambodia confessed that her story was entirely fake.
  • She reportedly lied to expedite her return to Thailand so that she could reunite with her Thai boyfriend.
  • The 25-year-old, whose name has yet to be disclosed, was charged for giving a false statement following her confession. If convicted, she could spend up to three years in prison and have to pay a fine of 6,000 Thai baht (approximately $179).
  • Prior to her confession, authorities and an investigative report discovered holes in her story, including the absence of records from the hospital where she claimed to have recovered after being saved.
  • The news of her false claims was confirmed at a joint Thai-Cambodian police conference on Friday.

The Thai woman who returned to her home country after supposedly being saved from a Chinese “organ harvesting gang” in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, earlier this month has confessed to fabricating the whole ordeal.

Thai deputy national police chief Pol Gen Roy Inkhapairote confirmed the news of the woman’s false claims at a joint Thai-Cambodian police conference on Friday. The media gathering was reportedly held to disprove the woman’s story.
