According to various reports for Thai media agencies, the identity of a VIP customer of club Burning Sun has been revealed to be a man named Chavanos Rattakul, CEO of Origin Food and the director of St. Andrew’s International School.
South Korean media agency JTBC reported that they were able to get in contact with a woman who claims to have almost been sexually assaulted by Mr. Rattakul after possibly having her drink laced with GHB. She stated that she had one sip of her drink and found herself in a hotel room with a Thai man whom she didn’t recognize the next moment. She felt certain that her drink had been drugged as she normally was able to drink large quantities of alcohol due to her high tolerance. The woman also stated that the man attempted to rape her but resisted enough for him to back off.
When she attempted to run away from him, he smiled and asked if she would take a photo together with him. Because she felt that the best way to get away from him as soon as possible was to oblige to his request, she took a selfie with the man before leaving the hotel room.
The woman then contacted the police, but discovered that there was no way that her accusations would hold up as she was shocked to see CCTV footages that showed her walking calmly in to the hotel room with the man. In addition, the photo that she took with the man also served as a notion that made it seem as if she was not forced into the hotel room against her will.
In addition, when forensics attempted to collect traces of GHB in her system, it was too late as an expert pointed out that GHB must be detected in the first twelve to twenty four hours upon administration.
