This Friday, Nov. 28, 2014 image shows Ngwe Thein, 42, who has been living on an island near Benjina, Indonesia for three years, after being forced to work on a fishing trawler with inadequate food and little or no pay, he said. In the wake of an AP report on fishermen who were enslaved, on Thursday, March 26, 2015, Thai lawmakers voted unanimously to create tougher penalties for violating the country's anti-human trafficking law, including the death penalty. But in a Thursday email, Phil Robertson, deputy director of Human Rights Watch's Asia division said, "The Thailand government has made repeated verbal commitments to get tough with traffickers but every time real follow-up has been lacking." In the meantime, Thein is one of the thousands of men who are waiting. (AP Photo/APTN, Esther Htusan)JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — The number of foreign fishermen stranded on several remote eastern Indonesian islands has spiraled to 4,000, including some revealed in an Associated Press investigation to have been enslaved.
