Thailand Army Abuse
What a Tragedy. A family sent their “pride and joy” son to join the military and they receive him in a box after one year of brutal abuse.
Phakhapong died on 17 October, 2017 after suffering a brutal beatings at the Armed Forces Academies Preparatory School during his first year.
The official army report to the family: “He died from a heart failure”. His family didn’t believe that “Mumbo Jumbo” from the army and they commissioned their own examination to discover that Pakapong´s brain, heart, bladder and stomach were missing, a second autopsy by the Central Institute of Forensic Science concluded that he was physically assaulted.
He is not the first or last dead one in that abusive Thai army culture that justify their actions without any accountability.
His funeral was held on Sunday, 12/10/2017 in Si Racha – Chonburi province.
How many people have to die to stop that abuse?
Pvt Yutthakinun Benz Boonniam
Thailand Army Abuse is the norm for the poor. “Torture to Death” is the motto of the mighty Royal Thai Army. Pvt Yutthakinun Boonniam, known as Benz, who had served at the camp, was attacked during detention in a military prison for disciplinary offences.
He was taken to a local hospital following the attack on March 31 and was pronounced dead by a doctor on Saturday morning, one day after being admitted to hospital for treatment.
The army has ordered a probe into the death of a 22-year-old private in the southern province of Surat Thani as his family suspects he was brutally beaten in a local army prison.
Meanwhile, two military officers have been transferred to inactive posts following a petition filed by the mother of the private who died after he was allegedly attacked in Vibhavadi Rangsit military camp in Surat Thani.
Shout out to the mighty Thai army, where the generals and high ranking officers are robbing the country and the rest are abusing these poor soldiers from Isan because they can, they are Slaves in That Thai Royal Army.
Private Songtham Moodmud
Private Songtham Moodmud, 23 year old soldier died in southern Thailand (April 4, 2011) after suffering a severe beating at his army base from his officers.
Pvt. Songtham was assaulted by a group of officers at the 1st Infantry Battalion base in Yala province on April 2, 2011 and later sent to hospital. After two days in ICU. He died from internal bleeding. All of that beating because Pvt. Songtham filed a complaint against his officer for stealing his money!
Pvt Songtham, 23, was tortured from 9pm to 4am at an army camp in Yala. Pvt Songtham’s body was covered with injuries and bruises from severe beatings. He suffered a brain hemorrhage. His face and eyes were swollen, and his genitals burnt by candles. That was not a disciplinary punishment. That was a torture.
When his niece, Naritsarawan Kaewnopparat sought justice and exposed the army tactics. They arrested her for defamation. The criminals are on the loose and getting promoted while she gets arrested for seeking justice. Viva Thai Justice!
Welcoming news for 100,000 Thai men who will be selected for 2 years of service in the Abusive, Corrupt,
Royal Thai Army. Men over 21 must report for two years of mandatory service, unless their physical or mental condition prevents them from doing so [Ladyboys come handy at this draft time! Exempt! Maybe that’s why Thailand has so many Ladyboys:)]. Those who underwent military training in high school are also exempt.
Those who volunteer serve six months, but others choose the annual lottery, which goes on for 10 days in recruitment centers around Thailand. Nobody wants a red card, which means serving for two years, with the chance of a posting in the dangerous south.
Only those not considered physically capable of service, the mentally ill and those who have significantly altered their physical appearance – such as transgenders, who are more visible in Thai society than in many other nations – are exempt. Students can defer while in full-time education.
Some wealthy and well-connected Thais have been known to pay bribes to keep their sons from military service.
This year’s conscription season started on April 1. The military says it needs around 100,000 recruits to fill the positions as privates.
Getting a black card grants exemption, while a red would result in 2 years of mandatory enlistment.
Chinawuth ‘Chin’ Indracusin, a 26-year-old singer and actor (Thai father, French mother), openly wept in front of reporters when he was drafted in Bangkok. Chinawuth already postponed his conscription for several years on health reasons. He is due to report to the army for his two-year service on May 1.
You must bribed the wrong guy! You are a super Star and that requires a Super Bribe. Not a lousy 30,000 Baht like “No Name or No Fame” Man! Open your ears and wallet, a million Baht will be worth it! Let’s hope, you don’t become an Army Slave or they ship you to the south where Muslim attacks are daily routines and you come back in a Body Bag.
Army Privates needed for Slave work! If you go around the suburbs of Bangkok, especially anywhere near an army base, you’ll find this is a common practice. Thai army officer routinely has about 3 or 4 enlisted army soldiers doing his family laundry, ironing clothes, cutting the grass, etc. He has 3 or 4 cars which get washed and vacuumed nearly every day. When his wife comes home from the mall, they take all of her shopping bags out the car then clean and wash the car for her. This is not a temporary detail. They live at the house for many months, of course sleeping on the floor. Power, Control, Intimidation and Abuse. That defines the Thai Royal Army culture. Rank Power. Slaves in Uniform!
