Pattaya police in urgent public appeal for information about missing Thai/US kids

PATTAYA: -- Pattaya police are stepping up the search for three missing Thai/US children who have been taken away from their two Thai mothers.

 

The children are with a woman called Kesri otherwise known as Kaet and may be in the Pattaya area after they were seen in a condominium in South Pattaya, reported Sanook.

 

The children all belong to a US missionary who Chatchaporn Patrasiriporn of the Pattaya police said was called David. (He was given the assumed name of Peter in the initial Thaivisa report yesterday).

 

David has now gone to work in Vietnam.

 

Chatchaporn said David took the children from their mothers who were looking after them and gave them to his third wife who was staying at a condo in Pattaya.

 

But when the first two wives - who said they have the legal right to look after the children - reported the matter and started a social media hunt the third wife left the condo with the three children.

 

Police have staked out the place without success.

 

Kaet is 20 years old. The children are made up of a six year old boy, a six year old girl and a one year old girl.

 

Chatchaporn asked for members of the public with information to call him direct on 085 363 9935.

 

He named the birth mothers as Busara, 32, from Payao who is the mother of the boy and Uraiwan, 29, from Sisaket who is the mother of the two daughters.

 

Sanook reporters who went to the resort yesterday spoke to a person called Opal, 29, who claimed to have seen the children and Kaet getting off a baht bus near the end of Soi 8 on Sai 2 road two days ago.

 

Opal said she thought nothing of it at the time but since the story broke she remembered the children who were "luuk kreung" (children of mixed parentage) and were speaking Thai with a young woman who got off the bus with them.

Find Kaet and throw the book at her and the "missionary" Father

 

Providing the children have not been hurt, this deserves a minimum 5 year custodial sentence.........but no doubt she will be given a slap on the wrist, and David will not be found -nor looked for!  TIT

Yes, that's true. How it comes? And there is also a mass crackdown on pedophile-rings. It started since Trump is in the office. Coincident?

 

MSM don't spent nay attention to it. Mostly is covered only on local news.

I understand them blocking the photo, but if you want to locate?  you might want to show the photo?

Too logical. Too little constructive thinking. Too little common sense.

The Thais are particularly good at sending people to jail for long stretches.  Ten years for this and 60 for that. It must be one of the most lop-side countries out there. As we know you can get away with murder in Thailand but get 30 years at a whim. At least the kids are safe (last reported) and looked after.

Depends on the crime. Thailand like other countries has guidelines (Thai Criminal Code) for setting sentences. If you plead guilty they will take whatever sentence you have  and decrease it by 50%. However there is allot of corruption so anything can happen.  My first girlfriend in Thailand had an issue with her sister.  Her sister got into a fight with a neighbor in the condo. The Neighbor pressed charges so her sister ended up in Jail. After speaking to the police we paid 5K baht and she was released and all went away.  One law that carries a heavy weight is the Lèse majesté making it illegal to defame, insult, or threaten anyone in the Royal family and this is taken very seriously and also used as a weapon to go after political rivals.

Of course! But what constitutes a crime is often at the whim of the police or judge. Interpretation is purposely vague, This has suited the powerful people very well down the years.

 

Don't you think it is wrong when - as happened quite recently - someone can rape and strangle (kill) an eight year old and get released inside seven years whilst an elderly couple can get 30 years each for picking mushrooms!?

 

I've been here for quite some time and I am constantly shocked at the severity of sentencing for trivial reasons. I was simply pointing out that it is a 'lock 'em up' culture here.

Just like any other government department/ministry it's the same. Each interpret things the way they want. However, the underlining issue is corruption which allows this to happen instead of clear interpretation of said laws/rules by superior officers / courts.  The people getting 30yrs for picking mushrooms I'm sure there is more to that story, such as someone with power wants those people out of the way or they just pissed off the wrong person, refused to pay a bribe etc.  The guys that get away with things I'm sure paid their way out.  Now I'm not saying all police all corrupt, but a good majority of them are.  I have meet some police that have done their job not asking for one baht. Then I met police that make something up and want to extort money from you. The old saying in Thailand is only the poor are in jail.
