Sukhumvit vendors openly sell VCDS

Child pornography is being openly sold on the footpaths of the city’s busiest road, outraging both tourists and residents who said it would not be tolerated in any other country.

After receiving several complaints about the DVD and VCD vendors along Sukhumvit Road between Soi 3 and 21, the Bangkok Post Sunday discovered that child pornography was openly displayed on tables along with copies of the latest Hollywood blockbusters.

The child pornography, sold on VCDs for 80 baht a disc, featured children from Burma, China, Europe, the Philippines and Thailand. Some of the VCD covers, which graphically showed children in sex acts, advertised that the children were as young as seven years old. Pornographic videos of bestiality were also displayed by vendors.

Several diplomats who live in the area expressed dismay when told of the open sales and after being shown the explicit covers of the VCDs.
