Wassana, a lifetime resident of the slums, viewed it as a nine-month solution to her family’s debt. She didn’t ask many questions.
In reality, there was no couple. There was instead a young man from Japan named Mitsutoki Shigeta, whom she met twice but who never spoke a word to her. This same man — reportedly the son of a Japanese billionaire — would go on to make surrogate babies with 10 other women in Thailand, police say, spending more than half a million dollars to father at least 16 children for reasons still unclear…
Shigeta told New Life “he wanted to win elections and could use his big family for voting,” Kukunashvili said. “**He said he wanted 10 to 15 babies a year, and that he wanted to continue the baby-making process until he’s dead.”
Thailand again. Unbelieveable.
