Police Major General Koson Paowes, Police Lieutenant Colonel Greetha Tunkanaruk and Police Lieutenant Colonel Ormsin Sook Karnkah of the Children, Juvenile and Women Division Region 2 together with Mr. Supagon Noja of the Pattaya-based Child Protection and Development Centre revealed that they had arrested Mr. Bancha or Kung Wansanor [39] from Rayong, with warrant no. 559/2522 issued by the Pattaya court on 11th June.

Major General Koson said, that on 24th May 2009, he was informed by Mr. Tunwa [22] and Mr. Peter [alias], a foreign national, that Mr. Bancha or Kung Wansanor and an accomplice had visited Mr. Peter at his home. They were wearing black uniforms and claimed they were members of the Pattaya police.

They told Mr. Peter they had received reports that he had taken young boys back to his house to have sex on a regular basis. They said they had photos and videos as evidence and if Mr. Peter wanted to avoid arrest he would have to pay them 140,000 baht.

The two victims were scared and agreed to pay the money but bargained a reduction to 120,000 baht. They withdrew the money at Big-C, North Pattaya and made an appointment to make the pay-off at a parking lot in the Jomtien area. As the money was paid to Mr. Bancha, Mr. Tunwa secretly made a video of the transaction on his mobile phone. Armed with this evidence Mr. Tunwa and Mr. Peter reported the incident to Police Lieutenant Colonel Ekadit Srimoon at the Dongtan police station.

The police managed to arrest Mr. Bancha at the traffic light intersection of Central Pattaya Road and Sukhumvit Road. Mr. Bancha confessed that he had worked with Mr. Sitthitham or Joe Walaisri [33], from Ubon Ratchatan, pretending to be police officers extorting money from foreigners who liked to have sex with young boys. He said he had gained his expertise from previously working with the police and had information on elderly foreign men who liked to pick up young boys from the Sunee Plaza area in South Pattaya. Police filed his case and would bring him and his accomplice to justice.

One hour later, at 2.00 pm on the same day, the same police team arrested a foreign man after a parent of a 13 year-old-boy had claimed that her son was tricked into having sex with him at the foreigner’s house. The suspect denied the accusation.

Police used warrant no. 566/2522 from the Pattaya court to arrest Mr. Johan Sven Ove Tanglars [36], at his house in Soi Bongai, Moo. 10, Nongprue, Banglamung charged with having sex with a child under 15. Mr. Tanglars was frightened to face the reporters and refused to leave the house.

To start with Mr. Tanglars denied the charges but after being questioned he told police that he was kidnapped by a group of Thai men who said they were police officers and demanded 300,000 baht for his release. Mr. Tanglars offered them only 90,000 baht which his captors accepted and let him free.

On hearing his story, the police team showed Mr. Tanglars the photos of Mr. Bancha, who had previously been arrested in the case reported above. Mr. Tanglars said that the photo was of the same man who had kidnapped him.

Police said they would now investigate Mr. Bancha more and Mr. Tanglars would be brought to justice and his embassy would be notified.
