BANGKOK – A 43 year-old Thai man has been given a three-year suspended jailterm and fined a mere 3,000 baht after being found guilty of assaulting a seven-year old boy whom he accused of bullying his own son.

The accused, Amnart Talapthong, was charged with assaulting a neighbour’s seven-year old son by stomping on the boys head after the boy allegedly bullied his own son. The incident occurred in Ban Uah-arthorn Panya Ram-inthra housing estate in Min Buri on October 4 and was captured on CCTV that was later posted online and went viral on Thai social media.

The Thai court ruled that Mr. Amnart’s violent act against the boy was brutal and sentenced him to a three-year imprisonment plus 6,000 baht in fine.

However due to his confession and his agreement to pay 10,000 baht in compensation to the boy, the court commuted the sentence by half and suspended the jailterm for three years.
