Phuket rape suspect has not confessed: Chalong Police

PHUKET: Chalong Police Superintendent Sirisak Wasasiri at 2:35pm today confirmed to the Phuket Gazette that Sakchai Thongseedam has not confessed to the rape of a young German tourist in Phuket on Thursday.

Mr Sakchai was arrested on Thursday following a German tourist filing a complaint with police.

“The Centara Karon Resort Phuket receptionist Mr Sakchai has yet not confessed to rape,” Col Sirisak told the Gazette.

He explained that the police were still in the process of collecting evidence to be sent to the provincial prosecutor.

Although the young German woman will not need to attend the court at a later date, due to the court already having her statement, she has been asked to undergo a medical examination, the results of which are to be included as evidence, said Col Sirisak.
