Elite guard in alleged sodomy of senior, 71

TRANG: Police have arrested a People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) guard for the alleged rape of a 71-year-old man.

The shocking announcement was made on June 11 by Thian Banthip, deputy superintendent of the Muang District Police in nearby Trang province.

Lt Col Thian identified the alleged rapist as 44-year-old Phuan Thajeen, a member of the PAD’s elite “Srivichai Warriors” that played a key role in defending PAD encampments at Government House and Suvarnabhumi Airport last year after those locations were seized by yellow-shirted PAD demonstrators.

The arrest followed an allegation made by the alleged victim, a 71-year-old man identified only as “Mr Duang” (not his real name).

The senior filed a complaint with police alleging that Mr Phuan raped him following a drinking session at Mr Phuan’s home in Tambon Na Yong Tai.

Following his arrest, Mr Phuan admitted that he had sex with Mr Duang, but claimed it was consensual.

Mr Phuan said that as he and Mr Duang were drinking, they began to feel horny and performed oral sex on each other.

After the alleged foreplay, Mr Duang allowed Mr Phuan to perform penetrative sex on him. There was no force involved and the act was consensual, Mr Phuan insisted.

However, Mr Duang claimed that Mr Phuan used force which he, being an old man and not a Srivichai Warrior, was unable to resist.

Mr Phuan has been formally charged with rape.

Inspector Amonrat Suthket, lead officer on the case, said Mr Duang was alleged to be a serial rapist who preyed on male senior citizens in the area.

His latest victim was the first who dared lodge a police complaint against him, police said.

Villagers in the area also alleged that Mr Phuan was fond of having sex with male senior citizens.

Mr Duang did not reveal why he went to drink at Mr Phuan’s house, given Mr Phuan’s reputation.
