Rape and Murder of Kids in Thailand

The rape and murder of a girl, 13, in July 2014 on a Thai train sparks calls for capital punishment for rapists. An initial forensic test found that the girl died of suffocation before being thrown out of the train. She had been raped.

This child was raped aboard a train and then tossed overboard to her death. Thailand has a horrible track record for dealing with rapists. [*] It’s a global centre for the child sex trade. People caught and convicted of rape offences, once arrested and sentenced, usually get pardoned and released from jail. And when they get out, they commit the crime again and again to the point that judicial power in Thailand is no longer sacred.


There is an empty desk today at Nong Kaem’s Satrinonthaburi school in Nonthaburi.

Her rapist murdered her to cover his tracks no doubt. Nong’s cell phone told her story to authorities and Nong’s rapist is now in jail.

Rapists are power and control freaks. They need to be incarcerated in max-secure prisons for life. That is what hurts control freaks the most. No more sentence reduction, parole or pardon. Life. Rapists are dangerous offenders whose recidivism is renown.

There are many tears for Nong Kaem.

Wanchai Saengkhao who raped and killed Nong, stole her back pack, iPad and cell phone. He sold her iPhone in Bangkok for money.

Saengkhao admitted he strangled Nong until she passed out, and then he raped her semi-conscious body.

He said that she regained consciousness during the brutal attack, but he strangled her again.

It was just before pushing her body out of the train window that he took her iPhone and iPad He kept her backpack.

Are you angry yet?

Many people want this Saengkhao executed. Doesn’t work that way.

Prison is where he should be. For all his life he needs to be worried if the next cell-mate has a thirteen-year-old sister or daughter. In Thailand there is an abundance of rapists and child-sex-traders though and Wanchai Saengkhao’s incarceration barely makes a dent in the problem so the military Junta now controlling Thailand has its work cut out. End the child sex trade and really incarcerate rapists. Don’t let them go for a few dollars in the pockets of officials as is the usual corrupt practice in the most corrupt nation on earth.

Unless Wanchai Saengkhao (and those like him) is put in jail for life, how many more rapes will he commit? 20? 30? 40? More? That’s what we know about rapists. Few men rape but those that do rape often.

[*] Sex Trafficking of Women and Children in Thailand, as defined by the U.N., is the “recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of deception, of the abuse of power or of position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation.”

Thailand is a source, transit, and destination for sex trafficking of women and children. With regard to sex trafficking of Thai citizens, there are two general patterns that exist in Thailand. The older pattern is one where a woman or child is recruited from a village to a larger town, where she is forced into the sex industry. Sometimes, she may be transported to a foreign country.

A more recent pattern is one in which a person is transported from a village directly to a foreign country.

The Foundation for Women found that the women in the one-step direct recruitment pattern are more likely to be exposed to harsher forms of sexual exploitation.

Once the women and girls are transported to the destination country, they are forced into prostitution, sometimes serving locals and sometimes sex tourists, depending on the location.

In Thailand, local women and children are trafficked into other countries, especially wealthier Asian countries.

It is estimated that 100,000 to 200,000 Thai females, including girls and women, work in a variety of overseas venues where sex is sold. The number of trafficked Thai females in Japan alone is between 50,000 and 70,000.

Most of these females are between the ages of 12 and 16 and are sent to brothels in their destination country.

Trafficking in Thailand is not limited to Thai citizens; many women and children from other countries are trafficked into Thailand to work in Thailand’s own sex industry. In recent years there have been numerous cases of Burmese, Cambodian, and Lao women and children trafficked into Thai brothels in northern provinces such as Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai; central and eastern provinces such as Trat, Samut Prakan, Samut Sakhon, Chonburi, and Chumphon; and, Songkhla, Narathiwat, and Pattani near the southern Malaysian border.

More than 80,000 women and children have been sold into the Thai sex industry since 1990.

The majority of the sex workers in Thailand are foreigners and more than 60% of females entering the country to work in the sex industry are under the age of 18.
