Local media reported that the 48-year-old man admitted he had sex with the girl but claimed he was unaware of what he was doing because “Ong Thep” occupied his body at the time.

The head of the shelter on Saturday quoted the girl’s mother as saying that she was not aware that her husband had allegedly raped her daughter. The mother insisted she only learned what had happened to her daughter when the case was made public.

The woman has expressed willingness to file a complaint against her husband, said Ms Phatthira. At this stage, it was not necessary since the shelter had already filed a complaint in line with the Child Protection Act. The woman could be a co-plaintiff if she wanted, the shelter director added.

Ms Phatthira admitted that terminating the pregnancy would be a sensitive issue. A team representing the relevant agencies and the girl’s family would have to make a joint decision, taking into consideration the impact on the girl, she said.

Pol Col Krissana Pattanacharoen, the deputy national police spokesman, said he had received a police report on the matter. National police chief Chakthip Chaijinda has instructed investigators to gather evidence carefully and swiftly as the case involves domestic violence, he said.
