After going viral on Twitter reportedly with their nude photos on a boat in the Sattahip sea, two women caused outrage among locals and eventually surrendered to police.
Many Thai netizens and people, especially those living in the Sattahip district of Chonburi, were angry with two Thai women who reportedly posted pornographic images of themselves on a fishing boat in the Sattahip sea and, according to the netizens, invited people to join them on a four-hour fishing trip for 3,000 baht. Those outraged said the pictures and posts hurt the family friendly image of Sattahip and Pattaya.
The women’s nude photos went viral on Twitter and eventually got Sattahip police’s attention.
Today, October 19th, the two women turned themselves in at the Sattahip police station with Sattahip police chief Pol. Col. Panya Damlek. They reportedly confessed to being the women in the viral photos, saying they took the photos by themselves.
Nonetheless, the women rejected an allegation that they invited people to join them for money. Instead, they said they wrote that as a Twitter caption for a laugh and did not mean to offend anybody. Other men on the boat were their boyfriends, according to the two women.
Initially, Pol. Col. Panya would charge the women with Computer Crime Act. The law is punishable by five years in prison or a fine of up to 100,000 baht.
