Pattaya, October 18, 2011[PDN]; Mrs. Saichol Mopklin age 26: address 99/281 Moo 10 Tambon Nong Preu, Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi province, with a beaten up face, scratched knees, came with her relatives to file a complaint to the Pattaya media that Banglamung police didn’t assist her in the investigation of the alleged beating of her and her foreign husband by a gang of criminals who also stole their money.
Mrs.Saichol Mopklin said that she and her husband Mr. Martin Rudolf Mopklin age 49 Swiss citizen, were giving food to stray dogs at a garage located at the bypass road route 36 Kratinglai-Rayong Moo 5 Tambon Pong, Chonburi province which is her friend’s garage.
The garage was closed because her friend had moved back to her home province. The garage stood empty with two dogs. Mrs Saichol and her husband pitied the dogs and drove to feed them every day.
The day of the beating and robbery she and her husband went to feed the dogs as usual, but when arrived at the garage they found a white Mitsubishi pick up truck with Rayong licence number. While they fed the dogs they heard noises coming from the garage. Her husband went to look and suddenly five men ran out with stolen propery and two of them started beating her husband viciously with a wooden stick.
Mrs.Saichol shouted to the thieves to stop but she was also beaten. The thieves stole 4,000 THB in cash and a credit card off her husband and escaped in the direction of Rayong province. Mrs Saichon and her husband went to Bangkok-Pattaya Hospital.
The relatives of Mrs. Saichol Mopklin notified the Banglamung police but to no avail. The police simply told the victims to go the police station by themselves, although they were severely injured and had to remain in the hospital.
