The family of a 28 year old Thai woman who suffered serious injuries to her spine after falling five floors at a condominium in Pattaya have claimed that her French husband caused her to fall during an argument.
He has since gone abroad and refuses to take responsibility for what happened to his wife.
The Frenchman is believed to have helped run many nightclubs in both Pattaya and Bangkok and the family of the victim claims that he has used his influence with Pattaya police to escape justice in the case.
Sunisa, 28, from Surin, fell five floors from room 506 at the Art on the Hill condo in Soi 5, Pratumnak Hill back on June 16th at 2am. She is now unable to walk or take care of herself.
Yesterday Sunisa’s mother Patcharaporn, 54 and her elder sister Natchaya, 32, went to human rights and problems in society lawyer Ronnarong Kaewpetch to ask him to help them seek justice for her.
Sunisa was a “PR” woman working at a Walking Street club and had been living with her husband for about a year. The family said they frequently had jealous arguments and he often beat her up.
On the night of her fall she had argued with him over going to another room to get clothes. Her husband thought she was cheating on him.
According to Sunisa he kicked, slapped and punched her and squeezed her throat making her almost pass out. He barred her exit from the condo’s locked main door and armed himself with a knife.
She tried to scream out but no one came to her aid so she ran to the balcony and called out. The husband managed to open the sliding door and barged out causing Sunisa to fall to the ground.
She didn’t jump as police and doctors have mistakenly assumed.
Natchaya said she had given up her job to care for her sister and there have been virtually no developments in the case in the last three months.
The Pattaya police have refused to answer her repeated calls and shown no interest in the case bar talking to the family just once, she said.
The Frenchman was working as an “organizer” at a Pattaya nightclub but also had connections to other clubs in Pattaya and Bangkok, she claimed.
She alleged that he had used his connections and influence with the Pattaya police to escape prosecution in the matter.
Lawyer Ronnarong said it was a highly serious case. If the husband was guilty of causing his wife to fall he should have faced criminal and civil proceedings.
He said that he intended to take the matter up with the Crime Suppression Division police today (Friday).
Thaivisa has withheld the name of the Frenchman that was mentioned in the Sanook report.
