Vice Adm Pokkrong Monthatphalin, navy spokesman, yesterday told the media that Petty Officer Second Class Taksin Ngokpilai was transferred to an inactive post amid an investigation into the matter, reports the Bangkok Post.

V/Adm Pokkrong said a navy panel ruled the allegation had grounds, prompting an order to detain PO2 Taksin for 30 days. As this act was found to have seriously sullied the reputation of the military, PO2 Taksin will also be discharged, he said.

In addition, PO2 Taksin’s superiors are expected to be held accountable for the action.

The commander of the Royal Thai Marine Corps’ Security Department will be punished for seven days while the commander of the department’s command and service company will be punished for 15 days, according to the navy.

Navy chief Adm Somprasong Nilsamai had said all supervisors must ensure that instructors behave appropriately and take care of recruits properly, Vice Adm Pokkrong said.

The incident took place at a naval training camp in Chon Buri’s Sattahip district in October.

The case came to light after a Facebook account named “Khon Khao Muang Pathum” uploaded a video clip depicting an instructor punishing a conscript by forcing him to drink semen mixed with fish sauce.

The conscripts in the video clip were recently discharged after completing their six months in the military.

'Bestial'?  I've never know other animals to practice such vile,  sexually deviant oriented behavior. Only one mammal does this- and mostly just one gender.

The Old Guard that rules ( many times repressive) Thailand, seem to blind to learn that Video clips are their greatest enemies if they keep doing things unlawful in their way of power thinking. In a few seconds a video clip expose them,  goes all over the world. Young Thai generation privates/conscripts will go more and more viral with bestial unlawful 'dicipline/sexual abuse' of Thai Offi...

A smiling V/Adm.  What to smile about? Who believes that a simple Petty Officer 2nd Class dares doing his sexual misconduct without the 'blessings' of direct superiors, Lieutenants, Captains, Majors? In many ways having power over people in Thailand results in forced prostitution, rape, sexual misconduct and filty degrading Thai 'brothers and sisters'.

If one still wonders why Thai Government doesn't like 'Amnesty International' presence in Thailand than now you know why.  :-)  Must be very frustrating for Thai Government that they never could prosecute or accuse Amnesty International of defamation.

It is a 'public secret' in Thailand that sexual abuse of Thai conscipts is a normal happening in Thai defence forces. Read report Amnesty International ( March 2020). Officers force boys to masturbate/ejaculate laying in row,, forced to provide sexual favors to commanding officers during 'rest hours', rape by superior officers. It's a long list.

Never ever have I heard of a woman doing anything close to as disgusting as this. No doubt it was his own ejaculate. Not all males are sexual deviants, but 99% of sexual deviants are male.

Most likely he forced them to drink his semen, the sicko. How do such scum ever get positions of authority? Another oxygen thief getting away with behaviour only fit for animals.
