Furthermore, with the recent decision and findings of the Supreme Court case regarding the human trafficking of Thai wild berry pickers by one of the berry companies in Finland, the Thai Embassy realized that it might be useful to carry out a research study / an assessment to see whether the elements in the Court’s findings have already been successfully addressed, both in structures and practices of the management and handling of the situation of the Thai pickers in Finland for the whole process, starting from recruitment, giving loan, expenses for traveling and accommodation cost, living condition during the performance of work, wage as well as fringe benefits. This is in order to help monitor, safeguard and protect the wellbeing and social justice for the Thai wild berry pickers in Finland. The Finnish side fully supported the Thai Embassy’s initiative and was willing to cooperate with the Thai Embassy in this regard.
