School boss denies rape charges

A 51-year-old former director of Patong Thanoen Samakkhi School in Nakhon Ratchasima's Bua Yai district, deemed to have breached a serious disciplinary code by having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old pupil, was given 30 days to appeal against the provincial authority's decision to dismiss him without any pension and welfare benefits.
 

As the dismissal procedure was now in motion, Nathapop Boonthongtho could appeal against the provincial education committee's dismissal order with the Education Ministry's Teacher Civil Service and Educational Personnel Commission, said provincial head Kritapol Chutikulkirati.

 

This disciplinary procedure was separated from the ongoing trial for criminal offences in the case at the Bua Yai provincial court, he added.

 

The school committee and teachers in early January brought the allegations to the media’s attention by distributing Line chat messages from the Mathayom girl’s phone in which Nathapop appears to address her as “darling'' and “dear wife'’.

 

This led to Nathapop's transfer out of the school pending investigations over his alleged three-month relationship with the girl, which reportedly started shortly after he took the position of school director.

 

The scandal was also probed by police who then brought three criminal charges of statutory rape of an under 15-year-old.

 

There is also a charge of libel linked to his dispute with a woman who reportedly told the school about the alleged scandal. Nathapop has denied the charges and vowed to fight them in court.

Guess the so called statutory rape laws here are weak.  Then again forceable rape by the other teacher scum didn’t get him arrested either. Education system seem to go hand in hand with the law here!

Plus extends to local govt offices and a lot more. The link appears to be uniforms. All these people who get to wear a uniform with the fancy gold and coloured additions have a high sense of entitlement and privilege.

What was that recent case with many officials involved in underage sex? Or some village scandal where many villagers raped girl?

What happened to officials? Guess nothing?

It’s the attitude of entitlement. Because I am more educated more wealthy, or have a higher position than you or your family, it entitles me to anything I want from you. It’s clearly a power play and should be punished effectively to send a message.
