Patong Police confirmed to The Phuket News yesterday (Jan 12) that an Omani tourist was charged with harassment after a hotel housekeeper reported him for harassing her at his hotel room on Jan 3.

Lt Col Theerasak Boongsaeng of the Patong Police said, “On January 3 we charged an Omani male, 55, with harassment after a 25-year-old woman reported to us that he had inappropriately tried to touch her while she was cleaning his hotel room,” said Lt Col Theerasak.

“The female member of staff was cleaning the man’s room when he came in and started talking to her, he the invited her to go out with him to eat.

“When she refused, he walked closer to her like he was about to hug her. When he did this the member of staff became scared and cried out for help. Other members of staff quickly went to the room. The Omani male then walked out of the room,” he explained.

“The owner of hotel does not agree with the behaviour of this tourist and asked for us to intervene.

The man was made to pay the member of staff B30,000 in compensation and to apologise for his actions,” Col Theerasak.

Lt Col Theerasak declined to give the name of the victim or the tourist to The Phuket News, “I think it is better not to name the victim or the suspect, this will prevent them being affected by the incident. It is a sensitive case,” he said.

I don’t want this to happen to women. In this case the housekeeper was just doing her job. She has a husband and child.

Tourists must be reminded that harassment is not acceptable in any instant. If they commit such incidents they will face charges. Please respect our country and our women,” Col Theerasak added.

Get with the program. Scientific research consistently confirms that male and female sexual desire are very different processes. Evolutionary imperatives may not look quite so imperative in the modern world. But thousands of years of programming are not so easily discarded, meaning women tend to behave as they have for centuries on end, while men tend to behave like cavemen. It's quite erroneo...

Guess what sex pats, even your beloved last bastion of sexism and sex servant paradise is catching up to the times. Women are increasingly learning that males are not necessary to keep around on a permanent basis. Surveys indicate that women are happier not having to cook, clean and otherwise service men. Developed Asian nations such as Japan have women remaining unattached out of choice. #TimesUp

Oh the mighty male ego, when it's not forcing itself onto disadvantaged women, it's whining about having to force itself on disadvantaged women.

Regarding the caddies and the hotel stuff who likes to earn extra money.Would be interesting to know if the person knows this from hearsay or is it his own hobby to pay for a little extra!

"The man was made to pay the member of staff B30,000 in compensation and to apologise for his actions,” Lt Col Theerasak" A darn sight better than using the obsessive western method of using the law to resolve an issue. Might pay to learn what "sexism" means.

30,000 thb by 'forced police mediation' ? For what?
And how much the housekeeping cleaning lady got of it? 
1 month salary, about 15,000 thb?  Not bad for a scream only.

No more RTP charges, right? Simply because there was nothing to charge!
RTP closed case press wise by saying: "No more to say, it is a sensitive issue"
hahahaha.

I've known quite a few hotel workers over the years, including room maids, who were quite partial to earning a bit of extra money on the side from hotel guests. Just like the caddies at the golf courses, you'd be surprised what is doable in the rough on the back 9. Uni students making extra money, happens every where over here.

 Great example of mansplaining - dictating to a  woman what sexism is.
