A SCOT suspected of human trafficking has been deported from Thailand after being branded a \"danger to society\".
DEPORTED: John Joseph Alty with a member of staff at The Squealing Pig, a guest house he ran in Thailand, has returned to the UK.
Custom byline text:
John Joseph Alty, originally from Glasgow, was escorted to Bangkok International Airport by immigration police at the weekend after the UK Border Agency (UKBA) told Thai police he was suspected of the crime.
The 57-year-old, who ran a guest house called The Squealing Pig in the coastal town of Hua Hin, 180 miles south of Bangkok, returned to Britain "voluntarily" after paying for his own ticket while being held in custody. All deportees have to buy their own tickets.
