There are 3 other men involved who are still out there.
When: December 27th, 2020
Where: Lam Luk Ka district, Pathum Thani province
Perpetrators: Mr. Supawat Khambua, 26; 3 other unnamed men
Victims: Ms. Ann (alias), 13
What: Police arrested Mr. Supawut Khambua, 26, on December 27th, 2020, under an arrest warrant from the Pathum Thani provincial court. The charge in the warrant is rape by threat of force.
The case stems from 2018. Mr. Supawat befriended Ms. Ann, 13, on Facebook. Mr. Supawat claimed to be an engineer earning tens of thousands of baht per month. He built trust with the victim and invited her to go shopping and get dinner together. Mr. Supawat brought the victim to a restaurant with three other men who were waiting there for them. When the restaurant closed, Mr. Supawat, along with the other three men, brought the 13 year old girl to a private room.
Mr. Supawat and the three other men then forced a gang rape and recorded the incident on film. They threatened the 13 year old girl that if she told anybody they would post the film of the rape on Facebook.
The parents of Ms. Ann noticed that she was not cheerful like she was before. They persisted in asking what was wrong and she told them. They reported the incident to the Pratunam Police Station by Chulalongkorn Univesrity. Authorities then initiated the investigation and found Mr. Supawat in Pathum Thani.
In this report there’s no word about the other men involved, nor is there any reference to charges related to the age of the victim.

My take: There are three other guys out there that think they got away with this. Let’s hope that they don’t, because I can guarantee they’re doing the same to other young girls out there.
I have no problem saying that the four guys who raped the 13 year old girl don’t deserve to live another day. The amount of time Mr. Supawat eventually gets, which will be criminally low, can’t give the girl her innocence back.
I’m curious how much time the rapists do get, though. According to the arrest warrant, the age of the girl didn’t factor into the initial charges. I will follow up on this case when more reports come in.
