Four More Babies Found; Tally Now At Thirteen Infants For Japanese Man Who Used Thai Surrogates

We are now up to a baker’s dozen with rumors of at least one more baby in India. Unless he is off-the-charts eccentric, his excuse of wanting a large family simply does not pass the smell test:

Thai police said Friday that four more babies who might have been fathered by a Japanese businessman who just fled back to Japan have been located, bringing the total linked to the odd cache of infants found in Bangkok this week to 13. The unnamed man, whom his lawyer claims is a rich businessman and the surrogate father of the babies, is 24 years old and has visited Thailand 65 times over the past two years, according to Thai immigration authorities.

His lawyer said the man actually resides in Hong Kong and local media reported that he departed Thailand for Macau early Thursday. The discovery of the infants came after another high-profile case in which an Australian couple stand accused of abandoning a baby boy with Down syndrome to his Thai surrogate mother, while taking his healthy twin sister back to Australia, shining a wider spotlight on Thailand’s unregulated commercial surrogacy industry.

On Friday, police found four more babies linked to the Japanese man but did not give details about their health or say where they were found. “He is the father of 13 surrogate babies and has been traveling in and out of Bangkok many times,” Thai Police Col. Napunwut Liamsanguan told Reuters, referring to the young Japanese mystery man.

The suspicious circumstances surrounding the cache of babies have raised suspicions they were being raised for cross-border human trafficking. But the lawyer of the man denied the possibility and said the businessman spends 200,000 baht (¥630,000) per month to care for the babies, which range in age from 1 month to 2 years.

According to Thai media, the Bangkok condo where nine babies were initially found and taken into police custody Tuesday is owned by the Japanese man, and the names of 12 babies are registered at the same address.When the lawyer pressed the father on the whereabouts of the three other babies named on the register, the father said they are in Japan, according to Thai media reports.

    It is a horrible news. It seems strange to hear such things nowadays. We are living in a civilized world. Thai surrogates live in awful conditions. They do not have appropriate examination. I am from Australia and for me it was more convenient to go for surrogacy to Thailand but I have chosen Ukraine, because surrogates mother live there in better conditions. Ukraine is a European country, so it is safier to go there. And it is risky to do surrogacy in Thailand, We had treatment in Biotexcom. It was our right desicion to go there.

    is a painful, full of debts way to achieve your goals. Of course it is not
    simple, but it works. If there are no other options, you should consider it.
    First of all you should decide about finances, you should know how much money
    you can spend for it. Then, you should learn it is legal in your country (the
    information about legality you can find in internet), monitor the clinics and
    agencies, but as for me I don’t trust the agencies. After, you should compare
    the prices, propositions and successful rates.

    In my country
    it was illegal and after monitoring and many conversations and advices, I
    decided for surrogacy in Ukraine. Moreover Biotexcom was the only clinic, which
    proposed me the guarantee to be a mother. And of course the price was very
    loyal. I didn’t have money for the fault. The first our visit was for signing
    the contract and making the tests. After two months we were taken in the
    program and we went in Ukraine for treatment. After the second attempt our
    surrogate mother became pregnant. Now we are the happiest parents of a
    daughter. So be brave to fight for your dreams!

    We had faced with rather
    uncomfortable situation. We had already had the date when we should be in the
    clinic for the procedure. But one day our manager phoned me and said that we
    can visit the center three weeks earlier. Of course we wanted to conduct the
    procedure as fast as it possible. For 10 years we had been waiting in order to
    become parents. Therefor we had to change our flight tickets quickly, pack our luggage
    and hell-for-leather go to Ukraine. God be thanked we could leave our job and
    buy tickets for needed date. So everything is ok but it was so spontaneous and

    There so many people in this
    clinic!!! Drives of this center provide necessary transfer for patients. But
    due to the great number of clients drivers sometimes wait for 1-1.5 hour for
    another couple. While others sit in the car and wait as well. We made our way
    to clinic together with two couples. They were from Italy and Germany. Driver
    took as to the hotel. Not so good…. And there were many people there as well.
    All they are patients of the clinic, from different countries. It was rather
    difficult to have a rest in the hotel as there were couples with newborns…
