As I mentioned in other topics, I did some translation work with court and cops and I can see how it works. Police make the suspect confess, suspect appears in court for preliminary hearing where his lawyer advices him to plead not guilty and bail is set and the suspect is on his way. And indeed it takes at least a year before the case will appear in court of first hearing, even if he then receives a guilty verdict he can appeal and will be released on bail again, then it will take around 2 years for the appeal court to reach a verdict. By that time almost 3 years have gone by, foreign victim is not here anymore, time has healed the wounds and the chance is small that suspect will do any real time. Sad but true !

If a victim's testimony is sworn before a judge the evidence stands, no matter how long it takes or whether or not they choose to return for the hearing.The difficulty is in getting the police to act in the first place....

It's the court who releases perp not the police, and at preliminary hearing the victim does tell her/his side of story but that doesn't seem to matter because perp is again released on bail, not by police but by the court.

I know that quite a few coppers are corrupt to say the least but the bail decision lays with the court, who are just to weak or not willing to lock people up.

A couple of years ago they found the body of a Swiss Woman on Ao Nang beach, I tried to follow up through a cop I knew and was told they had no clue at all where to look, case went dead.... And there are more...

Thailand needs to learn that the social world is upon us and this face saving crap and injustice system that is in place here just will not be able to avoid more of this sort of thing. I wish more people had the motivation to do videos like this and I hope the video has enough views to prove it's point.

If a song about a lost guitar could shake up United Airlines maybe this will shake up the local tourist people a bit. I hope the daughter is recovering and the deep hurt the father rightly feels slowly fades.

Good on that father cos I would hunt this scum down and take care of him myself he would be begging to to jail.

Its great to see hundreds of comments on that video from disgruntled thais as well as falangs and I would suggest we all add it to our facebook pages and share it, maybe this might be the thing that makes the powers that be wake up and see people are tired of this bullshit.

The thought of one of my daughters being raped enrages me and I would like a few minutes with this scum anyway lets share this video and get it out there as its time Thailand realized they have to act and act fast whenever a tourist is assaulted killed raped or robbed and push it through fast.

This is a very smart campaign, hitting the Thais in the pocket where it hurts them. It is the only way to get their attention that "civilized' people do not tolerate crap like this.bah.gifThere is a increase in violent crime including, rapes and stabbings from groups of youth in gangs on scooter motorbikes who seem either untouchable by the police or the police have no interest in stopping their crime spree. The other problem is the the local courts and judicial system is ineffective with the violent criminals when they are caught. source

I have noticed many people commenting on the Youtube vid asking people to boycott Krabi and contacting tourist operators and letting them know why they are going to other places.
