KOH SAMUI — A 27-year-old Thai man confessed to robbing and raping a Russian tourist on the island of Samui, police said Monday.

since there was a dearth of police pointing fingers, I am not sure who was the accused.

“He also confessed to all charges.”

 

" Sattawat was arrested shortly after midnight. He’s been charged with robbery."

Before the recent rains I passed a lone blonde female riding on the mountain road between Maenam and Lamai. If only she knew what happens up there...

I figured the handcuffs were the clincher.

Police are still waiting for a formal medical examination result from a hospital to confirm that the rape took place before they can file sexual assault charges against the suspect, though Sirichai said he’s confident of Sattawat’s guilt.

“I believe that happened, but we still have to wait for evidence,” the lieutenant colonel said.

 

By which time he will have regained what little sense he has and claim it was consensual.  Meanwhile, the victim will be going back home and unavailable to testify if and when it does come up for trial.  Too bad...

 

Edit:  On a related note, did anything ever happen to the guy in BKK that did exactly that- just recently?

The tourist court is geared towards taking sworn testimony, allowing victims to depart on time and encouraging others to do so.

 

Whether that happened this time remains to be seen.
