FBI: 6 accused in forced labor of 400 Thai workers

The six defendants include Global Horizons President and CEO Mordechai Orian, 45; Director of International Relations Pranee Tubchumpol, 44; Hawaii regional supervisor Shane Germann, 41; and onsite field supervisor Sam Wongsesanit, 39. The Thailand recruiters were identified as Ratawan Chunharutai and Podjanee Sinchai.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is what AP is NOT telling you (and why you come to WRH). Mordechai Orian is a huge GOP donor! Orian gave tens of thousands of dollars to the National Republican
Congressional Committee on eight occasions between 2004 and 2006. His largest contribution of $11,000 came on July 13, 2006. Orian also gave $2000 to the GOP-affiliated Restore America PAC twice in that period.

During those years the Republican-led Congress debated and sought to pass a major immigration reform bill that involved, among many other things, an expanded guest-worker program. The legislation ultimately failed.
