Woman in Korat radio mast protest says her 14 year old relative was raped by a cop

A 35 year old woman scaled a radio mast at Region 3 police headquarters in Nakorn Rachasima yesterday in protest at a case that has gone cold.

The woman is claiming that a cop attached to the Pho Klang force in downtown Korat raped her 14 year old relative.

Despite the alleged offence happening a year ago little has been resolved. The public prosecutor decided there was no case to answer while the police are talking about financial compensation, reported Thai News Agency.

But the woman who climbed the mast yesterday and threatened to jump certainly got some attention – both the deputy provincial governor Murathathee Rakchartcharoen and the head of the province’s police Suphakorn Khamsingnork were on hand.

They both spoke through a loud hailer to try to calm the situation and talk the woman down.

After an hour she gave up and a cradle brought her down from the 30 meter tall mast.

She handed officials a piece of paper outlining her grievances on behalf of her relative and was then taken to hospital.
