A Koh Kood tourist police inspector in Trat’s Koh Chang district has been transferred to an inactive post due to a failure to immediately inform supervisors about the assault and rape of foreign tourists over the weekend.

Police chief Pol General Chakthip Chaijinda said Monday that the transfer effected immediately.

A deputy police spokesman said that five Cambodian fishermen had been brought into custody on charges of raping and assaulting foreign tourists near a Koh Kood hotel.
Yesterday, Chakthip also assigned his deputy Pol General Wut Liptapanlop to lead a team to inspect the Koh Kood crime scene, interview suspects, and give moral support to the victims and try to restore confidence among tourists in general.
