A British citizen has been arrested in Bangkok after six foetuses were found stuffed into travel bags.
Hok Kuen Chow, 28, a Briton born in Hong Kong of Taiwanese parents, was held in the city’s Yaowarat area after police received a tip-off.
He is suspected of trying to smuggle the foetuses – from two to seven months – back to Taiwan to sell to wealthy customers online.

Human remains: Two of the six foetuses wrapped in gold leaf which were seized by police in Bangkok, Thailand. A British man has been arrested
Chow has reportedly admitted buying the bodies, which had been roasted dry and painted in gold leaf, for 200,000 baht (£4,040).
Back in Taiwan he could have sold them for six times that amount to rich clients who believe the foetuses will bring them good fortune. ‘The bodies are between the ages of two and seven months,’ said Wiwat Kumchumnan, of the police’s children and women protection unit.[related]
‘Chow said he planned to sell the foetuses to clients who believe they will make them lucky and rich.
‘Some were found covered in gold leaf.’
Police said the bodies also had a variety of religious decoration and tattoos on them.

Grim: The corpses had a number of religious threads on them and they are thought to have undergone a black magic ritual
It was not clear yesterday where the bodies, which had been stored in six travel bags, came from or who had handed them over to Chow.
It is possible they had undergone the grisly Thai practice ‘Kuman Thong’, in which unwanted babies are surgically removed from their mother’s womb before being subjected to a ceremonial ritual.
Instead of being buried, the bodies are roasted dry and covered with a lacquer before being painted with gold leaf.
Chow, who was arrested on suspicion of being in possession of human remains, was staying at a hotel in a backpacker area in Bangkok when he was detained.

Macabre: Thai police show the human remains at a news conference after British citizen Chow Hok Kuen was arrested
Police had received a tip-off that foetus corpses were being offered to wealthy clients through a website advertising black magic services. Black magic rituals are still practised in Thailand, where street-side fortune tellers offer ceremonies to reverse bad luck.
Chow faces one year in prison and a 2,000 baht (£40) fine if he is found guilty.
In November 2010, health inspectors found 2,000 foetuses on a building site by a monastery in Bangkok which had been illegally aborted.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office yesterday confirmed it was on stand-by following the arrest.
A spokesman said: ‘We can confirm the arrest of a British national in Bangkok on May 18.
‘We stand ready to provide consular assistance.’

I posted a thread in the news section not even two months ago where a Chinese citizen was arrested in Thailand I believe with a suitcase full of fetuses and still borns, this guy had them wrapped up in banana leaf though I believe.

Like I stated before, for a modern nuclear superpower, China sure does have some strange customs and culinary likes.

Thank you very much for this thread, Rosie. I've been interested in this sort of thing for a while now. Cheers my friend. :)

Find the thread (in pictures) of BABY SOUP and scroll down to my post. There is an article I posted from a 1995 copy of The Eastern Express, a Hong Kong newspaper. It talks all about how the Chinese DO actually eat dead babies. Undercover reporters went to hospitals and got interviews and.. fetuses.

Very strange article to read. You have trouble finding it, let me know.

Cannibalism in China Acceptable… If For Health

We posted once an article about how the Japanese simulated eating a human body as a form of edgy entertainment. Well now there are reports that the Chinese have been eating infant babies in an attempt to improve their health and beauty.
The Next Magazine, a weekly publication from Hong Kong, is reporting that infant fetuses have become a popular health and beauty supplement in China. It is further reported that in Guangdong, the demand for gourmet body parts is so high, that they can even be purchased directly from the hospitals.

It is reported that during a banquet hosted by a Taiwanese businessman, a servant Ms Liu from Liaoning province on the mainland inadvertently revealed the habit of eating infants/fetuses in Liaoning province and her intention to return for the supplement due to health concerns. The Taiwanese women present were horrified.
Ms Liu also disclosed that even though people can afford the human parts there are still waiting lists and those with the right connections get the “highest quality” human parts, which translates to the more mature fetuses. A male fetus is considered the “prime” human part.
Ms Liu then escorted the reporter to a location where a fetus was being prepared. A woman was chopping up a male fetus and making soup from the placenta. During the process, the woman even tried to comfort everyone by saying, “Don’t be afraid, this is just the flesh of a higher animal.”
In fact, in China, reports about meals made from infant flesh have surfaced from time to time. A video is on the Internet for people to view. In the introduction, the Chinese claim that eating a human fetus is an art form.
On March 22, 2003, police in Bingyan, Guangxi Province seized 28 female babies smuggled in a truck from Yulin, Guangxi Province going to Houzhou in Anhui Province. The oldest baby was only three months old. The babies were packed three or four to a bag and many of them were near death.
On the morning of October 9, 2004, a person rifling through the garbage on the outskirts of Jiuquan city in the Suzhou region, found dismembered babies in a dumpster. There were two heads, two torsos, four arms, and six legs. According to the investigation, these corpses were no more than a week old and they had been dismembered after cooking.
Although China has laws that prohibit the eating of human fetus, the regime’s forced abortions to ensure the one child policy is strictly adhered to thereby creating many opportunities for these sorts of atrocities to occur.
We were able to find the still shots of the process but we want to warn you that it is very extreme and graphic. Please do not view unless you are over 18 years old and you have a very strong nerve.

I'd probably take one of the fetuses though, not to eat it or do anything ritualistic with it but just as a really cool conversation piece. "Hey, see this gold plated Asian fetus? Guess where..."
