After a similar occurrence on October 12 involving a Prachin Buri MP, three ladies accused an MP from a district in Bangkok’s Thon Buri region.
Wacharasindhu responded to these claims on Twitter. He said that the party’s disciplinary committee had contacted the complainants for more information.
Parit said two inquiries have been completed and the third would be contacted tomorrow for more information.
MFP party condemns sexual harassment
“The party condemns sexual harassment. The MP under inquiry will be held accountable as any other member found guilty of similar misbehavior, regardless of political implications.”
Parit responded to the rising gossip mill, popularised by the Facebook page “Wan Nee MFP Ko Hok Arai” (What lies is MFP spewing today?), which airs MFP’s dirty laundry.
Attracted to nightclub
The Facebook page owner said the MP privately chatted with the victims before luring them to a nightclub.
He allegedly gave them drinks, sexually harassed them while they were unconscious, and continuously asked for sexual favors, which they denied, according to Bangkok Post.
Sirin Sanguansin, Chaiyamphawan Manpianjit, and the accused MP are among six MPs from Thonburi districts in Bangkok. In June, Sirin, who represents Thawi Watthana, was accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend in a car in Sri Racha district.
After Parit’s declaration, Progressive Movement secretary-general Piyabutr Saengkanokkul thanked her and the party’s female MPs for maintaining the party’s image during these problems.
Piyabutr also encouraged the accused MP to apologize to the victims, the public, and the party, saying that would reduce the number of clarifications MFP members must offer to calm the situation.
“Take a stand and accept responsibility.” Don’t try to conceal. Recognize your error, apologize, and then face the consequences.” According to Piyabutr. He feels that such a step could contribute to the establishment of a new societal standard.
