hai police arrest female teacher for sex with teenager Bangkok - Thai police arrested a female teacher for having sex with a 13-year-old boy whom she was tutoring in her room, media reports said Tuesday. Police arrested Thanawan Klongsinchai, a 29-year-old English teacher, Monday on charges of molesting a minor, the Khao Sod newspaper said. Thanawan denied the charge, claiming the sex was consensual. Parents of the 13-year-old, who was big for his age group, pressed charges against the teacher after the boy told his friends of the affair, the newspaper said. Thanawan had been providing the boy private tutorials in English in her school dormitory, where the alleged harassment took place. She claimed the boy made the first moves and she eventually consented. DPA / 2009-02-17 Please have some respect and don't come with the good on him attitude and remember this is a 29 year adult having sex with a 13 year old child.. pedophilia as I understand it.
English_Bob posted a question in Living in ThailandThailand is a bit of a Utopia for paedophiles - lax law enforcement, poverty and an air of laissez faire. It seems to many that Cambodia are doing more to address the issue than Thailand. Finally, offenders can be punished in their own country for crimes committed abroad. I used to work with an American guy whose tastes ran to the very young - I contacted the FBI and told our employers, but he disappeared before anything could be done. The police attitude was - no complaint has been made (by the teenage boy who shared his room most nights) and the staff of his apartment building stopped talking as soon as the police got involved. While not a perfect guide, here are a few common traits that people should be looking for... Just a quick search on Google will pull up hundreds of stories like the following... http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2007/oct/16/internationalcrime.thailand http://www.nationmultimedia.com/2006/08/22/opinion/opinion_30011609.php http://www.pattayadailynews.com/en/2010/06/24/us-court-indicts-paedophile-imprisoned-in-thailand/ In all these cases, the paedophiles came to Thailand to abuse young children. And in almost every single case, they took teaching jobs to get close to their victims. It's well known that paedophiles often choose work that brings them into close contact with children - priests, scout-leaders, teachers. One has to ask the question, what percentage of men working as teachers in Thailand are paedophiles? What would bring someone to a very poorly paid job that commands almost no-respect amongst peers? Aren't there a myriad of other jobs that offer more? One might also ask, what can the Ministry of Education do to address the issue? Are there sufficient checks on teachers' backgrounds? What can be done to curb the numbers of paedophiles entering the country and abusing vulnerable Thai children especially in rural areas? Where is the line between civil liberties and genuine caution? Is it OK to check someone's computer for incriminating pictures, movies or websites visited? Surely a basic criminal record search in the teacher's home country would be prudent?
Lock these scum up and throw away the key!!
Treborz posted a topic in General DiscussionA Briton is one of three suspected paedophiles being held by police at a Thai beach resort town. Briton George Stanley Gibbs is among those arrested in Thailand The men were arrested at their homes in Pattaya and charged with sexually abusing children under the age of 15. The suspects are George Stanley Gibbs, 67, from the UK, and Karl Erik Berglund, 60, and Lars Anders Ellerman, 65, from Sweden. Police chief Chaiwat Ketworrachai said officers confiscated sex toys, still and video cameras, computers and a photo album of naked children during the arrests. He said the suspects had co-operated with police, but added: "We cannot give more detail before the cases are filed to the prosecutors." If found guilty, the men could face up to 20 years in jail. Several south east Asian countries - including Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam - are popular with paedophiles because of lax law enforcement and poverty that forces children into prostitution. A number of high-profile suspects have been caught in Thailand, including Canadian teacher Christopher Paul Neil. Neil was arrested in 2007 after an Interpol manhunt, sparked by some 200 internet photos showing him allegedly abusing Vietnamese and Cambodian boys. He was sentenced to eight years and three months in jail http://news.sky.com/skynews/Home/UK-News/British-Paedophile-Suspect-Arrested-With-Two-Others-By-Police-In-Thailand-Beach-Resort/Article/200905215280428?lpos=UK_News_Second_Home_Page_Article_Teaser_Region_3&lid=ARTICLE_15280428_British_Paedophile_Suspect_Arrested_With_Two_Others_By_Police_In_Thailand_Beach_Resort
