Rape charges dropped

PATONG: Rape charges against two Thai singers have been dropped at the request of the alleged victim, 18-year-old “Anna” (not her real name), a tourist from Holland.

Pol Lt Weerapong Rakhito of Kathu Police Station said, “The case was closed because the victim came to us with her lawyers to ask to have the charges dismissed. I did not ask why. We had already sent the case documents to the Dutch Embassy.”

“Anna” was taken to hospital on September 9 after a reported incident at the residence of one of the singers on Siriraj Rd near Patong. (See here.) She has since left Phuket.

The two singers no longer work in the pub where they met “Anna”, said the venue’s owner, on condition of anonymity.
