A 51 year old French citizen, reportedly working as a French teacher in Singapore, has been arrested in Bangkok, Thailand for allegedly buying sex with teenage boys.

The suspect is Quenot Jean-Christophe Marie Georges. He was arrested on February 4 at a hotel room in Soi Inthamara 47, Bangkok.

A computer notebook, a memory card, two hard disks, a camcorder, camera, cell phone, eight packs of Kamagra oral jelly (a cheaper version of erectile dysfunction-treating Viagra) and 36 condoms were seized, according to police.

He allegedly picked up boys aged 13-15 at the Huay Kwang Stadium to have sex with him. A father complained that his teenage son had gone missing and police say they traced him to the foreigner’s hotel.

The suspect was allegedly caught with two boys aged 14. Neither were not the missing teenager.

Officers said they found a tripod in the room and a computer with pornographic movies for the boys to watch with him.

Police said they found a video of the suspect having sex with a teenager. Two boys reportedly told police they were invited on Facebook by the suspect to have sex with him for 800-1,000 baht.

Deputy divisional commander Col Nakarin Sukhonthawit reported that the police had been notified that teenagers at the stadium had an unusual amount of cash because they were “going out with a foreigner”.

Nakarin said the suspect had admitted to recording sex videos with a boy but insisted it was for his own viewing. Police are checking for the videos online, which would lead to additional charges.

The suspect reportedly told police that he taught French in Singapore and had befriended teenagers at the stadium by volunteering to teach them English and football for over a year.

“As he grew closer to the boys, he invited them to have sex with him for cash and would record it,” according to police.

Police found the suspect had entered Thailand 10 times before, with the previous trip mid-2018, each time staying in the Huai Kwang hotel for around five days.

Police initially charged the man for “taking away” minors under 15 from their parents or guardian and raping children.

by The Nation

A 66 year old man who lived alone and suffered from chronic ailments has been found dead outside a 15 floor apartment building in Bangkok’s Bang Sue district.

It is believed he committed suicide by jumping from the rooftop this morning.

Taopoon police were alerted at 11am that Charn Wanngern died after he fell to the ground in front of the entrance to Building A of Taopoon Mansion.

Police found a suicide note in the man’s room on the 15th floor. No foul play is suspected in the man’s death.

The note also had the mobile phone number of his close friend. Police called him and learned from the friend that Charn used to own a cabaret troupe in Silom and he recently fell and had been suffering from chronic aliments since.

Charn needed to see a doctor regularly and the friend had to take him to his hospital as he lived alone. The friend said he had a schedule to take Charn to see his doctor this Friday.

Police said Charn’s room was on the west side but he fell from the east side of the building so he likely went up to the roof and jumped down.

Man arrested over 50 million baht scam | The Thaiger

A man has been arrested for allegedly defrauding around 100 stock market investors of about 50 million baht.

Pol Lt Gen Suchate Hakparn, the Immigration Bureau chief who also heads the economic crime centre, says 52 year old Jittaraphon Nisarat was arrested on Tuesday at his apartment in Bangkok’s Phra Khanong district.

Surachate says Jittaraphon was arrested under a warrant issued by the Criminal Court on Friday.

Jittaraphon was accused of collaborating with two other accomplices to convince over 100 victims to invest in their company with a promise of a 10 per cent yield per month for their investment. The investors were asked to invest at least 300,000 baht.

The investors were told that Jittaraphon’s company would invest in the Wall Street stock market for profits in short sales.

Surachate said the investors received the promised returns for just the first three or four months but Jittaraphon then stopped paying the yields and closed his company and disappeared.

Surachate said police are still hunting for the two accomplices, 40 year old Sorachat Klamsaeng and 34 year old Pirayuth Arj-amnuay.
