Chief Thai Police Chief Admits Borrowing Money from Brothel Owners

Former Chief of Police of Thailand, Somyot Poompanmoung, claimed to have received a loan from a brothel owner who is now a fugitive over sex trade cases. The loan was called to reach the amount of US $ 9.5 million (Rp 126.9 billion).

As reported by AFP Thursday (15/2/2018), in the interrogation held today, Somyot reported has admitted to receiving large amounts of money loan at Bangkok's 'Victoria Secret' brothel owner, who is now the focus of a sex trade probe.

The place has permission as a massage place, but in practice it becomes a brothel. The brothel was raided by police last month, with about 100 sex workers secured. There are at least 13 sex trafficking victims among the sex workers, some of whom are underage and known to have originated from Myanmar.

But to journalists, Somyot is reluctant to disclose his testimony during interrogation by the Special Investigation Department DSI) to the Thai Police. He was asked about his relationship with Kampol Wirathepsuporn, owner of 'Victoria Secret' who is now a fugitive. "I am here as a witness to give information, I can not talk about the details," said Somyot who now runs the Thai Football Association.

This place is one of the 'massage parlors' in Bangkok that offer sex services in dozens of booths private bathub equipped. Prostitution is technically a violation of the law in Thailand. But the prostitution industry is growing rapidly due to the culture of bribery and protection money from local authorities. The raid of a plus-plus massage parlor like this is only done when there is an alleged involvement of minors.

In the raid of 'Victoria Secret' some time ago, found a big book mentioning 20 names of officials allegedly receiving free food, free liquor and even free massage from illegal business.

At least seven pimps and related agencies' Victoria Secret 'has been detained on trafficking charges. But Kampol and his wife are still at large. The Thai authorities are still investigating officials suspected of 'protecting' the brothel.

In a separate statement, the Director of the Bureau of Trafficking in DSI Supat Thamthanarug confirmed that no criminal charges were charged to Somyot in this case.

Last week , Somyot had called Kampol an old friend who helped him financially when needed. Somyot said the loans from Kampol were granted according to the legal corridor and reported to the Anti-Corruption Agency by 2015. It was clear that Somyot was still Chief of the National Police of Thailand

"Borrowing is borrowing, helping is helpful and afterwards the money returned, "said Somyot who tried to brush off allegations of lawlessness against him. He also declared himself not asking where the borrowed money came from.

The relationship between the high-ranking police officer and the brothel owner still provokes the Thai public's attention. Some time ago, Thai Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan was pushed back because of the dozens of luxury watches he wore in recent years.

Injuries Lurking Boxers Thai Children

Cheers broke out as two boys hooked each other in boxing ring, in Buriran province, in northeastern Thailand.

After five rounds, the winner of the match was Nantappy Promsod, 11 years old, known as the nickname : "Saksandee Super Besar."

He was awarded 3,000 baht ($ 94.34) for winning the match and getting an additional 1,500 bath ($ 47.17) for each match he attended.

Nanthawat is one of at least 10 boxers aged 15 years or less in Satuk District. Almost every village there has a boxing seat.

"Muay Thai," or Thai Boxing, is said to be 2,000 years old. Known as the "Art of Eight Body Members," the Muay Thai movement relies heavily on elbows, hands, knees and feet.

Thailand's national sport is gaining popularity abroad. But in Thailand itself, Muay Thai is a way to get out of poverty. Those who can reach the top position in this sport can earn a lot of money.

The countryside in northeastern Thailand is the home of big boxing stars winning international awards, such as the middle-class boxer Buakaw Banchamek, the two-time K-1 World MAX .

Originally from Surin Province, Buakaw, 35, started competing when he was eight years old and won the first international kickboxing tournament in Tokyo in 2004.

Nantikit wants to follow in his footsteps

"I want to be a champion" said Nanthawat, who has played 40 times in his career for 2 years. In the last few months Nantakin has won more than 10 consecutive games.

But as more and more Thai children, some even pre-kindergarten children, pursue Muay Thai, doctors and some children's rights organizations, warn sports can cause chronic health problems, such as neurological or neurological disorders.

Jiraporn Laothamatas, a neurologist and director of the Advanced Diagnostic Imaging Center in Thailand, said the study he performed for five years showed a pattern of brain damage and memory loss young boxers, compared to those who are not boxing.

"There is no safe boxing activity because you can see even adult boxers get older too, they also have Parkinson's disease, which is caused by brain damage.

According to the data Thai Sports Authority last year, more than 10,000 Thai boxers were less than 15 years old. But experts say the actual figure could be 20 times higher because not all boxers are registered.

However, parents and coaches reasoned, Muay Thai teaches discipline and an important source of income.

"The money earned from Nantappy from boxing will we're tubing for her needs, "said Nantakin's father and coach, Ong-arj Promsod, 36. "When we're short of money, I'll give him some pocket money for school." [fw/au]
