Man Caught with Roasted Fetuses Covered in Gold A British man born in Hong Kong to Taiwanese parents was recently arrested in Bangkok for trying to smuggle out six fetuses covered in gold. Hok Kuen Chow told authorities that he intended to sell them in Taiwan. He said that he was able to buy the fetuses for about US$6,500 from a “dealer.” Their going rate in Taiwan is at least six times what Chow had paid for them. A Bangkok police officer said customers buy these gold-covered fetuses because they are used in a sort of black magic ritual believed to bring fortune and good luck.
Thai authorities now are trying to determine whether the fetuses were aborted or were taken from hospitals or other locations. Chow is currently held up in jail for his actions.
BANGKOK – Thai authorities have taken in possession 6 gold covered fetuses. The fetuses were first roasted before being covered with gold and were destined to be used in black magic spells. The fetuses were discovered in the luggage of a British man of Taiwanese decent. Chow Hok Kuen (28), who was arrested by Thai police on Thursday confessed that he had purchased the gold covered fetuses in Bangkok from a Taiwanese “dealer” for 200,000 baht ($US6,500) each and that he was going to resell them in Taiwan for at least 6 times that much.
