Indonesia Seeks Jail for 8 Traffickers

Indonesian prosecutors have sought up to four-and-a-half years in jail for Thai captain Youngyut Nitiwongchaeron and four countrymen as well as three Indonesian, accused of human trafficking in connection with slavery in the seafood industry. The suspects were arrested on the remote island village of Benjina last May after the slavery was revealed by AP. Prosecutors also demanded the defendants pay a fine of about $18,000 or serve three more months in jail.
