Suspected Semen Smuggler Snatched at Border

Nithinon Srithaniyanant, at far left, covers his face as customs officers examine his nitrogen-cooled tank of semen Thursday in Nong Khai province.

NONG KHAI — A man was arrested Thursday afternoon after he attempted to traffic a tank of semen into Laos.

Nithinon Srithaniyanant was arrested Thursday at a customs checkpoint at The First Thai-Laos Friendship Bridge in Nong Khai city after officers found a liquid nitrogen tank loaded with six bottles of semen belonging to Chinese and Vietnamese men.

Nithinon was charged with violating the 2015 Child Born by Assisted Reproductive Technologies in Medical Science Act, which prohibits the sale, import and export of semen, eggs and embryos. It was enacted to effectively ban surrogacy services in the kingdom.

Nithinon was fined 200,000 baht, according to Pichit Leelat, a provincial customs officer. The 25-year-old man confessed to having smuggled the semen tank in and out of the country to clinics in Laos and Cambodia several times starting last year, receiving 5,000 baht per delivery.

Pichit said the physical evidence will be passed on to police and health officials for further investigation.

Man arrested in Nong Khai for semen trafficking

NONG KHAI - A man was arrested at the customs checkpoint of the Thai-Lao Friendship bridge while attempting to smuggle a small tank of nitrogen containing frozen human semen into Laos on Thursday.

The man was identified as Nithinon Srithaniyanan, 25, of Bangkok's Phayathai district.

Nimit Saeng-ampai, chief of the Nong Khai customs, said Mr Nithinon had been under watch because he travelled frequently to and from Laos through the Nong Khai immigration checkpoint in Muang district. Every time, he carried a large suitcase.

On Thursday, as Mr Nithinon was about to cross over the bridge to Laos, he was stopped for a bag examination.  The customs officials found in it a tank of nitrogen containing six vials of human semen.

He admitted he was taking the semen to a clinic in Vientiane.  He said the semen was from two men, one a Chinese national and the other a Vietnamese national.

Mr Nithinon was charged with violating the law on medical breeding technology, which prohibits the sale,  import or export of semen, eggs or embryos.  Violators are liable to a jail term of up to three years and/or a fine of up 60,000 baht.

Smuggling of the items out of the country also violated the Customs Act, Mr Nimit said.

Mr Nithinon allegedly told customs officials he had been hired 12 times in the last year by a Thai-Japanese man called "Yu"  to deliver a nitrogen tank containing semen, eggs or embryos from four clinics in Bangkok - Jetanin, Superior ART, First and I-Baby - to VIP Clinic in Vientiane, Laos.

He had also made 13 deliveries of similar tanks from the clinics in Bangkok to a hospital and a clinic in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, via Aranyaprathet, in 2016.

He said he was paid 5,000 baht for each delivery.

Illegal trade in human sperm still unclear

Now what a huge problem!

It was still not confirmed a man arrested at the border in Nong Khai on his way to Laos was actually carrying human semen, eggs or embyros for use in surrogacy, a senior health official said on Friday.

Charges could not be laid until the frozen contents of the nitrogen cylinder found in his suitcase were examined and confirmed, Dr Thongchai Keeratihuttayakorn, deputy director-general of the Health Service Support Department, said.

He was responding to the reported arrest of an outbound 25-year-old Thai man carrying frozen semen at the Thai-Lao border checkpoint in Nong Khai on Thursday.

If it was confirmed the cylinder did contain vials of human semen, as reported, then officials would establish if there was any evidence linking it to any agent, employer or clinic, he said.

"It is not easy to find out who is the source of sperm, eggs or embryos and if they were traded," Dr Thongchai said.

He led officials to inspect some of the fertility clinics in inner Bangkok named by the arrested man on Friday.

Their operations were legal and standard and nothing linked them to the arrest in Nong Khai, Dr Thongchai said.

Prof Dr Prasit Watanapa, president of the Medical Council, also said officials had yet to prove what was inside the nitrogen cylinder. If it was human sperm, eggs or embryos, the doctor responsible could face legal and disciplinary action.

The managing director of Superior ART infertility treatment clinic in Ratchathewi district, Sarayuth Assamakorn, held a media conference on Friday. Superior ART was one of the several clinics mentioned as the source of the semen.

Mr Surayuth said two men, a Chinese and a Vietnamese, had sought infertility counselling at the clinic earlier this year. Semen had been collected from them and stored at the clinic, he said.

Both clients authorised a Thai nominee to withdraw their sperm from the clinic on April 17 and 19, but the nominee was not the man arrested in Nong Khai.

Mr Sarayut said his clinic normally let clients withdraw what was considered to be their personal property. They had the right to do so. The clinic had nothing to do with sperm transportation or trade.

The clinic always warned clients that the export or importation of human sperm was illegal, he said.

What if the sperm crosses the border still in a human body, just gets ejaculated and collected in Vientiane? Will it become mandatory now to empty yourself at an etablissement in Pattaya etc. before leaving Thailand?

Something about the topic of this thread with the words, "Semen," and "snatched" in it.  They seem to go together.

I was thinking more along the lines of "Snatch,"  which can have a certain meaning.  Words like these are fun because they can have different meanings.  As George Carlin once said referring how slang can be used in a Walt Disney Movie, "We're going to snatch that pussy, put him in a box and put him on the airplane."  Then referring to a part of the plane known as the "Cockpit."
