PATHUMTHANI – July 10, 2012 [PDN]; Mr. Sinlapachai Kenpa, authority of the Ministry of Social development and Human Security, brought “Miss Jane”(alias), age 15, a ninth grade student of a Patumthani school, to the Nongsuea police station to notify police that she had been repeatedly raped by her father since she was 7 years old. The father, Mr. Somnuek (surname withheld), is 41 years old.
Miss Jane also revealed to the police other recent rapes: by three policeman and a taxi driver. The rapes occurred after she joined the traffic volunteer project of Pratoo Chulalongkorn police station in Thanyaburi , to help people in rush hour traffic. Three policemen had befriended her and gave her money, and she thought she could trust them completely.
She did not know their real names, as they told her to call them “Ja Por,” “Ja Sor,” and a third man whose name she did not know. They treated her to meals and she did not think it was suspicious, because they were policemen and she thought they were just being kind. While she was eating they convinced her to drink alcohol, which she drank and felt dizzy and drunk. So the three volunteered to take her home, but on the way they brought her to a motel and raped her.
When she became conscious again, she did not see the three, so she fled out of the hotel and called a cab, to notify to the police that she had been raped. But the taxi driver instead drove her to another hotel and raped her. She did not know where the hotel was.
Miss Jane was overwhelmed by sadness and could not accept all the bad things that had been done to her. In desperation she came to woman and children’s shelter of Patumthani, for help in seeking justice against everybody who had abused her.
At hearing Miss Jane’s report, police will call Miss Jane’s father for questioning and will arrest him if the accusations prove to be true. As for the three policemen and the taxi driver, the police in the area were notified and will be looking for those suspects.
