Thai Tourist Minister Tries to Block Thailand Rape Video
THAI TOURIST MINISTER TRIES TO BLOCK THAILAND RAPE VIDEO - The Minister of Tourism in Thailand is trying to block people viewing a damning video regarding a rape case. A Dutch musician’s daughter visited Krabi, Thailand for a holiday with friends and was severely beaten and raped by her tour guide – it was alleged.
After the young lady, of just 19 years old, reported this to the police and a physical examination confirmed the assault, battery and rape, the Thai Tour Guide was arrested and duly confessed to his crimes.
During the initial court hearing the Thai Tour Guide then recanted his confession and as a result was given bail. According to some news reports the next court hearing could take up to 2 years due to the backlog in court cases.
Understandably the father of the young daughter is none too impressed and therefore used his skills as a musician to put together a music video titled “Evil Man from Krabi”. The video has now been viewed over 370,000 times and reports are coming out that this is having a devastating effect on tourism. In fact at the last count Thailand over 80,000 holiday cancellations and this number continues to grow.
It’s the same old story… The trouble with the Thais is that they care little about their tourists. What counts is money and that is the only reason they are considering blocking the video as a number of hotels, tour operations and other tour related business are complaining to the Minister regarding the videos’ effect.
What the Thai Authorities should not have done is to grant the defendant bail – especially considering he originally confessed to the crime. Thailand is currently striving to increase tourism but with the Thai Authority’s lack of consideration for tourists and the ever increasing number of violent crimes and scams targeting tourist it is little wonder that people no longer want to visit Thailand.
Thailand is certainly not unique in crime levels however their lack of any real law enforcement (unless it produces the coveted brown envelope) rarely produces justice. In a country where murder, rape, bag snatching, scams and general crime continues to go unpunished is it little wonder why tourists are looking at other holiday destinations.
