Police are compiling more evidence and will possibly charge him with other offences once evidence is verified, said Pol Lt Col Omsin Sukkarnkha, head of the children’s and women’s protection division of the provincial police.

He dismissed rumours that police were demanding money from the suspect to eventually drop the case, saying: “It is completely untrue, especially given that the suspect is a well known person. And that makes police exercise extra caution handling the case.”

Police have charged a Thai man, Traiphob Bunphasong – who has allegedly provided sex services using underage Thai boys to many people, allegedly including Pletnev – with four offences: rape of a minor under 15 years of age; providing sexual gratification for others through prostitution; employing minors under 15 to perform lewd acts; and human trafficking of minors under 15.
