Damning statistics - only 13% of Thai rapes end in convictions, report

BANGKOK: -- A National Police report on rape revealed this week shows only a fraction of cases result in the perpetrator facing justice.

 

It has been claimed that there are almost four rapes an hour in Thailand - but many of these go unreported and fewer still end in the courts.

 

Celebrated and scandalous cases in the public eye remain unresolved, reported Tnews.

 

The news media was looking at cases of rape from 2009 to 2013.

Of an average of 4000 cases per year that were actually reported only an average of 2,400 resulted in convictions.

 

But police surveys suggested that rape cases were much higher than that.

 

Police admitted themselves that the likely incidence of rape in Thailand was likely to be 30,000 cases per year roughly equating to four an hour.

 

This meant a clear up rate of just 13%.

 

In 2009 there were almost 5,000 reported rapes, only half of which were cleared up.

 

Tnews said that celebrated cases such as the Phitsanulok gang rape of July 1977 remained largely unresolved highlighting poor police procedures.

 

In this case a woman found mutilated on the railway tracks was presumed the victim of an accident by the cops.

 

A subsequent investigation by reporters into inaccuracies forced them to reopen the case.

 

It was then found that 30 men had gang raped the victim and put her on the tracks to die to cover up the crime.

 

Only eight or nine men ever faced the courts in that case.

 

No explanation was given in the Tnews story as to why the statistics mentioned came from the years 2009 to 2013 and were not more recent.

You have to wonder how many are unreported.  Due in large part to the low conviction rates.

Lobotomies of most males would solve the problem.

"Police admitted themselves that the likely incidence of rape in Thailand was likely to be 30,000 cases per year roughly equating to four an hour"

     It's already stated in the article..

Misleading headline. 2400 of 4000 reported cases ended in convictions. I don't know how that compares to other jurisdictions, but we don't know how many cases of the 4000 never made it to court because of lack of evidence or because the charges were unfounded (it does happen!). The number in the headline here is based on an estimate of unreported cases (only God knows how accurate that is!) and assumes all allegations of rape are true.

According to the mindset of the head honcho, the victims must all be pretty and stroll around like unwrapped candy. Otherwise it would not happen.

Before we all start bashing Thailand, please do some research about your own country, like some of us already did.

Very bad for your mental health, including finding out the false accusations and convictions.

What is this news trying to tell me? Perhaps "Every reported rape needs to end in a conviction" or something? The West is playing that dangerous game right now, not working out that great on either end.

 

Painfully stupid stats like these just don't help anybody whatsoever.

Sorry, rape is not about sex, it is about power, really.

The article doesn't state the reasons for not reporting rape.  Hence, my speculation about conviction rates.

You're assuming that all the men are guilty, what you mean is that 13% of the accusations are proven thus 87% are not proven, I know that us males are the scum of the earth according the the loony left wishy-washy liberals but at least provide proof before you convict us all.

Women can do no wrong. Right? It is honourable.

 

At the same time, there are AHs and they are not going to make it easier for true victims to get justice. Here is the formula: kharma mentality/quiet religious leaders + losing face culture/repressed emotions + propaganda/poor school programs/TV soaps/games + money talks/corruption = top-dog wins everytime. It is of course much more complicated than this. This is a forum.

 

Ask yourself who are the top-dogs and follow the money and the ... semen. 

 

That being said, there are problems in the West too.
