Ronnarong Kaewphet, who leads a justice-seeking advocacy network, on Tuesday posted on Facebook a copy of an apology from Onuma Ploadprong.

The former teacher at Nonthaburi’s Sarasas Witaed Ratchaphruek School sparked a furore last week after CCTV recordings were released showing her assaulting kindergartners.

The apology posted in the school’s Line group read: “I want to apologise for the incident. I had no intention of assaulting the children and am ready to take responsibility. I apologise from the bottom of my heart and am ready to take punishment. I always love and have goodwill toward children."

In his Facebook post, Ronnarong slammed Onuma, saying quitting is an easy way out for someone caught beating children. He also said American psychiatrists had volunteered to provide online counselling for parents or students affected by this teacher’s behaviour.

Ronnarong and students’ parents have been meeting police officers at Nonthaburi’s Chaiyapruek Police Station since last Saturday to take legal action against Onuma and other teachers for assaulting students in class. Their allegations are backed by CCTV recordings.
