In central Thailand, a 50-year-old woman and her close aide have been arrested for allegedly torturing and assaulting a male employee. His torture resulted in his face being deformed and his genitals battered and infected.
Ms. Je Kang, 50, and her assistant were arrested in In Buri district of Sing Buri province on Tuesday for allegedly abusing 29-year-old Jirawat Laosuwan.
Commissioner of Provincial Police Region 1, Pol Lt Gen Jirapat Phumchit, told reporters that the woman had employed Jirawat in her remote, fenced-off farm product factory. It so happened that his elder brother used to be her husband.
Mr. Jirawat told Kanchai Kamnerdploy, host of the Hone Krasae TV program on Channel 3, that he had been beaten with a PVC pipe and baseball bat, and forced to eat the dung and lick the urine of dogs and cats if he had not cleaned their area satisfactorily. His genitals were also injured, and it later became infected.

Furthermore, as a consequence of the beatings, he also lost sight in his left eye and suffered deformities to his ears, forehead, and lips.
According to Jirawat, he has never received any payment. He was struck in the face with a PVC pipe and baseball bat as punishment when he was caught stealing 40 baht from his employer to buy a snack.
Earlier this month, his brother Thapanawat, 38, removed him from the employers’ premises and filed a complaint with the In Buri police station.
The reason Jirawat did not run away immediately was to show appreciation to Ms. Naipaporn for caring for him and paying for his education before he dropped out of school.
