Six former game streamers who previously worked at a famous game streaming company called ‘Hashtag E-Sports’, filed complaints against the company owner today, December 14, as he allegedly provoked indecency, intimidation, physical assault, and fear among several female employees.
The representatives of the alleged victims arrived at Phaya Thai Police Station to report the alleged indecent acts in their workplace against their former boss after the case had been exposed and talked about on social media over the past week.
An alleged female victim told the press that most of their cases took place in the middle of 2019 when the owner allegedly approached them in the style of a friendly brother-sister relationship before persuading them to work as an online game streamer to push the innovation and development in the game industry in Thailand.
After they agreed to join his company, the owner would seek the opportunity to stay with his clients alone in private before he reportedly performed sexual harassment from time to time, according to her statement.
She was reportedly being intimidated with the end of her career in the game industry if she refused to comply with his commands. The victim helplessly decided to resign as she claimed that her colleagues, including the human resources department, did not believe her and did not help solve the troublesome problems.
The group decided to file charges today after the cases were exposed online and there were reportedly at least 21 female victims, according to the group, that have been sexually harassed at the company and have been physically intimidated if they reported such crimes against the owner.
Chutipong Pipoppinyo, the Vice Chairman of the sub-committee for the Study of Software, Games and E-sports Industry, told the Associated Press that the initial investigation revealed that the accused had an alleged strong connection with a politician but he would be charged for his alleged acts if he was found guilty as he has no right to threaten any employees.
