PHUKET: Police are investigating a rape complaint filed against a construction foreman who worked in Sakoo, the area just south of Phuket International Airport, for allegedly repeatedly raping a 15-year-old girl by deciving her that he had romantic feelings for the girl.

 

Thalang Police Deputy Chief Lt Col Anukul Nuket confirmed that the mother brought her 15-year-old daughter to Thalang Police Station to file the complaint on Wednesday (June 17).

 

The mother explained that the man, 50 years old and originally from Chiang Mai, was a foreman at a construction site where the mother worked.

what a nonsense thing to say and nothing to do with anything 

 

as an adult he had sex with a minor - if it was forced at some point should be explored

I am not taking away the horrible crime that this 50 year old man have done. However, why is it that 15 year olds of today are so stupid that they really believe things like that?

Actually it is not nonsense at all. The law says that under 15 is just plain no. Between 15-18 consensual sex is permissible as long it is for romance or love with no financial incentives.  Hence the romantic feelings quoted gets round the law. If he paid her, it would be illegal. It comes down then as you say as to whether any force was used.

What you say is of course correct, non-payment for sex is the loop-hole. But the promise of money to help take care of matters such as certain gifts, internet money, clothes, shoes, make-up etc etc etc is a way around the payment for the actual act !

15 is legal in Thailand if he doesn't pay her for sex.

 

No , incorrect .

15 is only legal if the parents give consent to the relationship .

As the mother has made a complaint, she quite Cleary hasnt given consent

Which means its rape

You're confusing property law with criminal law.

Old matey obviously declined the request of a plump brown envelope and is now knee deep in the brown.

He paid her multiple times. But its a strange story they call it rape but she came back all the time. There might be pressure and stuff and its morally wrong but its still a strange case.

Im not . 

15 -18 years old need their parents consent before getting into a sexual relationship .

I'm not sure if actual permission  needs to be given, but if the Parents make a complaint to the Police, its considered to be non consensual sex, which is rape

You're still wrong.

It's considered lowering the value of their property, and they can bring a civil action for compensation.

Police in such a case generally aren't interested unless they think they can get a share of the payout.

But he still won't be charged with rape.

What is the Thailand Age of Consent?

The Age of Consent in Thailand is 15 years old. The age of consent is the minimum age at which an individual is considered legally old enough to consent to participation in sexual activity. Individuals aged 14 or younger in Thailand are not legally able to consent to sexual activity, and such activity may result in prosecution for statutory rape or the equivalent local law.
