The teacher – in an administrative role – admitted rape.

His victim had told the Paveena Hongsakul Foundation and the police that she had been raped on three occasions the most recent being January 20th.

On Tuesday a concerned member of the public had posted on the Paveena Hongsakul page about the rapes. The mother had been scared to do anything for fear of retribution from the school.

But after the foundation contacted her she changed her mind.

It emerged that the 13 year old had come home from school this week and had a violent argument with her father causing the mother to threaten her child with trouble at school.

But her daughter countered in tears: “Don’t you know what they have done to me at school?” and ran off to her bedroom.

Concerned about what this meant the mother pressed her daughter who refused to speak. But when friends and others got involved the girl revealed what had happened to her.

The first rape occurred on a day off when the teacher called her in and threatened her with punishment. She was only in P6 the last grade of primary school at the time.

He raped her then in an attempt to get her silence took a picture of her naked and promised to post it if she said anything. He told her that she would be expelled if anyone found out.

After this she tried to keep her distance from the teacher but he waited for her at the gate. Two further rapes occurred in a hotel in the Orm Noi district of the province of Samut Sakhon south-west of Bangkok.

Following the intervention of Paveena Hongsakul the victim and her mother reported the rapes to Krathum Baen police. They moved quickly to arrest the teacher who was at his home and in the process of committing suicide by hanging himself.

He has admitted rape and has been charged with rape of a minor under 15, taking her away from the custody of her parents and illegal detention.
