Suspects in schoolgirl rape case urged to stay quiet

Volunteer lawyers for suspects in the alleged gang rape of a teenage schoolgirl in Phang Nga province have advised their clients to stop giving media interviews to avoid possible defamation.

 

Eight suspects have already been arrested in connection with the gang rapes that allegedly took place between May and December last year. The alleged victim, now 15, said more than 40 men took part in the sexual assaults. 

 

Of the eight suspects arrested, two have already been released on bail. 

 

“Local people in the village where the crimes allegedly took place [put forward] money to submit bonds for two more suspects,” lawyer Sanpetch Tipmontien said on Monday.

 

Yuttanakorn Juanjenkij, the kamnan overseeing the village, said local people had given Bt20 each to support the bail requests. 

 

Sanpetch said the money raised was not enough to put up bail for all the accused.

 

He added that he was in the process of seeking the temporary release of the other suspects through the Justice Fund.

If, as reported, it is only a village of 180 people then the 20baht donation shouldn't cover bail for any of them.

There must be more to this if the villagers want the perpetrators out on bail.

'Volunteer lawyers for suspects in the alleged gang rape of a teenage schoolgirl in Phang Nga province have advised their clients to stop giving media interviews to avoid possible defamation.'

 

Er, defamation of whom?

 

'Sanpetch said the money raised was not enough to put up bail for all the accused.'

 

At B20 per villager? No s___t, Sherlock? Not sure whether it's the villagers making a genuine effort at having them bailed, or a veiled hint at their thoughts on the accused.

At B20 each? Highly likely there is, but I doubt it's about bail.

Geezer

Allegedly involved with rape.

Up till found guilty they are innocent.

And mind, it is all on the say so of the alleged victim.
