    Trat - Five Cambodian fishing crew members were arrested in connection with the rape and assault of French tourists on Saturday night on the resort island of Koh Kut, police said.


    Cambodian Sailors Accused of Raping French Tourists on Koh Kut Island

    TRAT — Five Cambodian fishermen have been arrested over the alleged rape of two French tourists and assaulting their male compatriots on the Island of Koh Kut, Thailand.

    According to a preliminary police investigation, the five were drinking liquor on their boat, and after they ran out, they put on life jackets and swam to the shore to buy some more.

    The drunken men ran into a group of four French tourists, two women and two men, who were walking around the back of their resort on Saturday night.

    Pol Lt Col Suraporn Thepsane, deputy chief of Koh Kut police station, said the Cambodian boat crew tried to kidnap the two women, aged 57 and 28, and assaulted their male companions, aged 30 and 29, attacking them when they tried to help.

    The suspects allegedly raped the women after the first man was injured and the second ran for help at the resort.

    The attackers fled after a group of resort staff and residents accompanied by the French man came to help. The three victims were found in critical condition and were initially treated at KohKut hospital before transferred to Trat hospital.

    Doctors said they had undergone surgery and are being treated in an intensive care unit where their conditions is described as satisfactory.

    The three detained on the resort island of Koh Kut after a 50-strong force of marines, police and administrative officials supported by villagers sealed off their escape route, the other two were captured at Hat Let immigration checkpoint in Trat’s Khlong Yai district at 3pm Sunday as they allegedly tried to flee to Cambodia’s Koh Kong province.

    National police chief Chakthip Chaijinda will question the five Cambodians and follow up the case himself on Monday, Pol Lt Col Suraporn said.

    Two suspects, center foreground, in the rape of two French tourists participate Sunday in a ‘re-enactment’ as a crowd gathers on Koh Kut.

    TRAT — Police on Koh Kut yesterday had to cut short a “re-enactment” of five Cambodian men accused of raping two French women after an angry mob gathered and attempted to assault the men.

    Officers on Sunday could not guarantee the safety of the five men, who allegedly attacked four French tourists on the resort island with knives on Saturday night after coming ashore from the Thai fishing boat they served on, according to police Maj. Gen. Nopparat Rintapon.

    Nasty business

    A director of the hospital where the victims were taken after the Saturday night attack said their condition has improved, with the most badly injured one moved out of the intensive care unit on Sunday. The women, ages 57 and 28, are mother and daughter. The two men, one from the same family, are 30 and 29 years old.

    The hospital official, who insisted on anonymity, said one of the three admitted patents had a broken nose and scratches, another a broken arm and swollen face and the most seriously injured person had cuts on the head and bleeding inside the skull.

    Trat province police chief Maj. Gen. Nopparat Rintapon said the five suspects had jumped off their anchored fishing boat and swam to Koh Kut after they had been drinking. Two of them met the French tourists and began talking to them, when the other three came running from the brush where they had been hiding and attacked them with knives and sticks, slashing one of the men badly while the other was able to escape and run to a nearby hotel for help.

    From Phnom Penh Post

    Cambodian Foreign Ministry spokesman Chum Sounry said yesterday that the Cambodian ambassador to Thailand, Eat Sophea, had accompanied Thai authorities to the island to investigate the case, “to make sure that it did happen or whether it is [a true] allegation or not”.

    Authorities were not yet aware of the background of the five men, he said, adding that if the men were charged, the government would provide a lawyer for them.

    Sounry described the case as “sensitive”, and said it had potential to damage Cambodia’s reputation, but cautioned, “we have to wait to see whether it is like the reports or not”.

    He said that more details of the investigation would be available today.

    Thai authorities have come under fire for their handling of the case of two Burmese men, who were last year sentenced to death in Thailand for the murder of two UK tourists in 2014.

    Questions have been raised about whether police poorly managed the crime scene and about their evidence-collection techniques.

    This is going to come as such a hardo thing to say

    But I don't understand how 2 kids, 29 and 30......couldn't fend of 5 small Cambodian guys
    Especially given what was at stake.

    I know I will get ridiculed saying that.....but I just can't see that happening now with me and another friend, let alone if I were 30

    Why run for help and leave 2 females there

    don't know

    But five fishermen with knives...and at a guess they know how to use them

    And maybe the third French person mentioned is one of the males who put up a fight?

    We don't know

    one of the three admitted patents had a broken nose and scratches, another a broken arm and swollen face and the most seriously injured person had cuts on the head and bleeding inside the skull.

Have a look at the Thai Visa thread on the topic, it'll have you wetting those 300 thread count sheets with laughter as every super Rambo in Pattaya volunteers to fight them off from their barstool. One says it wouldn't have happened if only they'd had pepper spray and nine iron golf clubs, as one does. Really, I need to reconsider what I carry with me on my evening beach walk!

    The tourists must have believed they were in a kind of heaven....

    Koh Kood is Thailand as it was years ago. Untamed jungle, pristine beaches, fishermen going about their business. Ancient Siam, at peace with itself.

    Unfortunately these five Cambodians were cooped up in a kind of shipboard hell, and descended into alcohol fuelled madness...
    Though looking back in the cold light of day it will look a whole lot better than the kind of hell on earth they are in now..

    Bangkok Post: Five Cambodian seamen take part in a crime re-enactment on Koh Kut, Trat province.
    The five were charged with raping two French tourists and assaulting their male compatriots on Saturday night on the resort island.




    Cambodians admit to raping French tourists

    March 1, 2016 2:11 pm
    Five Cambodian fisherman have confessed to raping and assaulting French tourists on an isolated Thai beach, Cambodia's foreign ministry said in astatement on Tuesday.

    Thai police said four French tourists were attacked late on Saturday on Koh Kood, a remote island near Thailand’s maritime border with Cambodia known for its untamed jungle and pristine beaches. Thai police investigators said the attackers swam from their fishing boat to assault the group and raped two women at knifepoint. They were caught while trying to escape.

    Cambodia’s Foreign Affairs Ministry said in a statement that the five fishermen confessed to Eat Sophea, Cambodian Ambassador to Thailand, that they raped and assaulted the tourists.

    "During the interview with the Cambodian ambassador the five fishermen confessed to have really been involved in the cases of rape and assault," the ministry said in a statement.

    "It happened while the five fishermen were in a drunk state." The five have been charged with rape and violent assault.

    I have no problem with what you are saying fella. I have had to stand up to an axe wielding maniac and his accomplice who invaded our camp ground once and I hope I never have to do it again. I was lucky I had a shovel at my disposal at the time but I am also glad I didn't kill the SOB or I would be the one faced with a murder charge.

    By the way, I still have the bastards axe 55

    Not being a keyboard warrior...............it is how I think and how I've been my whole life
    It is just the 1st thought that popped into my head

    But I didn't see they had knives.....I thought it was just a fist fight
    Sort of changes things

    It's hard to get my head wrapped around the neanderthals who would do such a thing. Heavy drinking is no excuse for attacking and raping some tourist. I suspect there was one dominant ring leader and the others followed him. Slime like that do not deserve to live.
