Digital data helped take down a Thai General in the country’s largest human trafficking case
During a routine checkpoint in Thailand, 98 victims were found crammed into trucks. Phones from truck drivers, victims and others involved were analyzed and led to several people in positions of local and domestic authority, including a group of law enforcement staff. 67 police officers, 3 politicians, and an army General were eventually identified as having taken bribes from the human trafficking cartel.
