Russians arrested over Phuket tuk-tuk sex video

PHUKET: Two Russians have been arrested for public indecency and fined B500 each after a video of the couple seemingly having sex in the back of a Phuket tuk-tuk went viral after being posted online last Friday night (May 5).

The 28-second long video was recorded from a vehicle travelling behind a tuk-tuk. The video was initially posted on the Facebook page of Sornchai Uadsree with the message, “Can’t they wait until they arrive at a hotel? Really can’t they wait to do this?”

In the video the woman can be seen straddling her male companion and leaning back across the tuk-tuk cab, and moving rhythmically while supported by her arms.

Karon Police on Saturday morning said they were unaware of the incident, and also by Saturday morning the Facebook page where the video was first posted had been deleted.

However, Lt Col Naruewat Puttawiro of the Phuket Tourist Police told The Phuket News today (May 8) that police had tracked down the tuk-tuk, and the couple.

“From the video we could tell that the tuktuk was travelling along the Karon beachfront road (during the incident),” he said.

“We tracked down the tuk-tuk driver through the license plate, and he led police to where the couple were staying in Phuket Town,” he added.

“We found them early yesterday evening (May 7). They are Russian tourists,” Col Naruewat confirmed, but declined to name the amourous couple.

“We brought them to Karon Police Station, where a volunteer (acting as translator) explained to them for an hour why they had been brought in for questioning.

“Both denied that they were having sex, but they both admitted they had removed items of clothing. They said that they did not know that this broke the law,” Col Naruewat added.

However, their actions were deemed illegal.

“We explained to them that in Thai culture even just taking off a shirt in public is inappropriate, so they were both charged with public indecency and fined B500 each,” Col Naruewat confirmed.

“We would like to thank the public for their help in bringing this to our attention,” he added.

My mentioning of freedom of speech, writing, publicing was not regarding PN.
It was regarding the thai government who signed international convenants/treaties regarding it.

Eagles reaction in this is complete off the road.
If Eagle is not happy with PN, he can write that in a different comment. Not over mine.

Eagle, haven't you previously criticised me, when I commented that many of my comments aren't posted, 31, so far, in the last 3 months.
Well, this is another, rare occasion, where I agree, with you. PN, in some countries, would lose its licence. Open, and fair, debate does NOT exist. It seems PN, and the junta, have many things in common. It is now very similar to the way Phuketwan's comments were run, by that ex-editor, mmm, I wonder what he is doing these days.

Thank you Kurt for mentioning freedom of speech,writing..Something the PN should stand for,but obviously do so only if it suits the own interests.Why else can some people writing whatever they want,even derogatory comments as long as thai people are on the receiving end.Comments from me or other people who disagree getting more and more blocked!And in publishing one sided comments only it is easy to manipulate new readers,as they will see always the same opinion and finally believe them.Something like this i would expect in countries like China or North Korea.Sadly the reality looks different.PN,you are going the wrong way!

Tide Swell:  Your idea is fine, however to executive such looks practical impossible.
How about a brochure the thai immigration officer hands out upon tourist arrival?
With dressing code suggestion, warnings for chance to be ripped off by taxis and tuktuks ( with their clubs. steel bars and knives below their seats), not to park car were you are allowed but send away by tuktuk driver, be not to much shocked by the show off of thai sex industry.
That there is no normal taxi service on Phuket island. Taxis race only loaded from airport to hotels and empty back to airport. If you think to flag down a empty taxi along any Phuket road, you will be disappointed, They ignore you. 
And so on, and so on.
Oh, and not forget to warn for the rip currents at beaches in that brochure.

I have said this many times in the past, and will continue to say it. Tourists, no matter from which country they are from, should be required to sit and pass an examination in the culture, religion, and social mores of the country which they wish to visit. 
This exam should be sat (and passed) either at the Embassy or Consulate of the country which the tourist wishes to visit in the tourist's home country, or upon arrival at the country they wish to visit.
In any event, said tourist should NOT be allowed entry to that country until he / she has passed the required examination.

Pauly44 well said, seems some people on here like the lawless way of life, probably suits their lifestyle!

Anyone seen the International newspapers and F-B videos of thai people walking dressed same way in German shopping centers.
It is all banned now by the present thai government.
They don't want the thai people to see it.
It is one of the reasons the thai government is so keen on dictating Face Book what to publish.
Actual a few days ago I red a comment  in BP that Thailand in the past signed international convenants/treaties about freedom of speech, writing, publishing.

Joe 12; It is without question dereliction of duty through laziness and corruption plain & simple, local culture/customs has nothing to do with it, that is just a cop out (pardon the pun). Police throughout the world swear an oath to serve & protect, they enforce laws at all times, not just at makeshift checkpoints & when they need extra income or just feel like it. They do this in most cases without discrimination, it is their duty, that is what they're paid for and take it very seriously. I would like to see a BIB spend a week in the shoes of a cop from the west, it would be a very rude awakening, law enforcement is a public service.
