SATTAHIP – March 31, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 1 p.m., local residents reported to police that a foreign worker had buried her aborted fetus. The report was received by Pol. Lt. Ubol Wongkhamchai, investigation officer, Sattahip police station.

He informed the rescue officers of the Sawangrojjanatharmmasatharn Sattahip foundation who went to the scene along with Pol. Col. Chonnaphat Nawalak, Superintendent, Sattahip police station, Pol. Lt. Col. Prakorb Saengphring, Deputy Superintendent, and the detective police team.

Two fetuses were reportedly buried at the back of the house at 48/17 Moo 1 Tambon Bangsaray, Amphur Sattahip, Chonburi province. Officers went to the 2-story concrete house blockaded by a fence, located in the middle of the community.

At the corner of the fence behind the house, officers found the corpses of twin male babies, age 7 months. The fetuses were with the placenta and had stains of blood. They were wrapped in cloth and buried at a depth of approximately 30 cm. Police estimated the fetuses had been dead approximately 5 hours.

The parents of the fetuses were being detained by the local residents and identified as Mr. Chen, age 32; and Mrs. Cheud, age 24, a couple from Cambodia. Both were employed as workers digging for Tapioca. Initially, bystanders assisted to send Mrs. Cheud to Banglamung hospital after she lost a lot of blood.

During questioning, Mr. Chen confessed that he had buried his male twin babies by himself. He claimed that he and his wife came to work in Thailand more than 1 year ago, and his wife was in her 7th month of pregnancy. But in the morning while his wife was taking a bath, she fell down on the floor, and got such pains in her belly that she gave birth by herself, but the babies died.

The couple was afraid that they would be held at fault if the fetuses were discovered and they would be punished. So he buried the babies to get rid of the evidence, but was seen by bystanders.

Pol. Lt. Ubol Wongkhamchai said that from gathering information from witnesses and the evidence, the couple are foreign workers who smuggled into Thailand illegally. The police still did not believe the husband’s confession, and will wait for his wife to recover before questioning her.

Initially, police assumed that after the wife got pregnant, both of the Cambodians were afraid that if they went to the hospital, they would be discovered as illegal workers, and because they are so poor, they decided to bury the aborted babies to get rid of evidence to escape from the law.
