More arrests made over alleged mistreatment of Thai models

BANGKOK (AP) — Concern over the sexual abuse of models hired to attend private parties in Thailand has grown with new accusations of wrongdoing following the death of a partygoer.

Police on Thursday summoned six men for arrest on charges of criminal association and molestation after a model filed a complaint that she passed out drunk at a Sept. 16 party and woke up in a bedroom without any clothes on.

Police say another model, Thitima Noraphanpiphat, attended the same party and was carried unconscious to the apartment of male model Ratchadech Wongtabut, who later left her body in his building’s lobby, where she was found dead.

Ratchadech was arrested Wednesday on charges of illegal detention leading to death, abduction with intent of committing an indecent act and molestation, which he denies.
