So, how could they have established that? 

 

Sniff test ? Lick test ?

Sniffer dog and a blacklight app...

I think if it was my daughter I would insist that the MET carried out a polygraph test. The MET? Are they the London Metropolitan division of the Royal Thai Police? Might as well be.

Police dismiss Koh Tao rape case after finding no evidence

BANGKOK, 17th October 2018 (NNT) – Thai police have ended their investigation of a British tourist’s claim that she was raped on a visit to Koh Tao in Southern Thailand after no supporting evidence could be obtained. 

After police conducted a probe into the rape allegation lodged by a British tourist following her trip to Koh Tao in Surat Thani province in June this year, National Police Chief Pol Gen Chakthip Chaijinda today joined Acting Commissioner of the Immigration Bureau Pol Maj Gen Surachet Hakpal and related officers in a press conference to declare the closure of the case. 

Pol Gen Chakthip confirmed that, following the alleged incident, officers were immediately sent to inspect the scene on Koh Tao but were unable to find any evidence that suggested the occurrence of the crime. 

Investigators were then sent to the United Kingdom in order to question the claimant about the incident in person. However, she could neither provide clear information on the site of the crime nor the appearance of the attacker. Moreover, an inspection of the t-shirt she was wearing on the day did not find any traces of semen, only the DNA of a man and a woman who had no connection with the incident. 

Given the lack of evidence and witnesses, the police have agreed that the rape allegation should be put to rest until any evidence turns up. Despite the case’s termination, no countersuit will be filed by the Thai police while the British tourist will not be blacklisted by Thailand.

I wonder if there was any investigation back in the UK by the British police

 

How did the Thais get the T-shirt, has it already been tested by UK authorities?

 

She said there was evidence there, was this just a guess or has it been confirmed with a laboratory?

That's what was going through my mind also ... where are the Scotland Yard Lab boys ?

If you look at the following article written by Associated Press which appeared in a U.S. publication earlier today, it shows a photo of the t-shirt itself being displayed on a screen during the press conference.  What's curious is that there are several red rings marked on the t-shirt.  So, if there were no traces of semen and/or DNA on the t-shirt, what do these represent?

The original post stated that they found traces of a woman's DNA and a man - but no "semen".
"forensic tests found the DNA of a woman and a man but no trace of the attacker’s semen, as she claimed."

Shut up! The case is settled. K Tao is innocent by birth. Next victim.

The was she, wasn't she argument can rage on, as no doubt it will with bar stool barristers from either side throwing in different views, my personal view in this particular case was that something untoward happened that night and whatever it was will remain forever as another unresolved. The Thai response is a big about turn for them and they have never mentioned the main thing that for me was central to this case, what happened to her phone and personal effects that were accepted as reported stolen? To close this out, once and for all it would be nice to know where that phone surfaces. All being said though your response is possibly the best that could ever have come out of this event whichever way it went with the only other positive being that now you can report a crime in any district and not just in the district that it occurred.
