On Wednesday we were granted rare access to a sentencing hearing at the Courthouse in South Pattaya as the presiding Judge Khun Gasichon read out the sentences for the three men.

They were found guilty of first committing an armed abduction of Miss Maria aged 30 and Miss Anastasia aged 31 in Pratamnuk Soi 4 in South Pattaya in the early hours of 25th December 2012. They were then taken to a remote location in the Huay Yai area and first robbed of their possessions and then sexually assaulted by the men.

The Judge sentenced the three men as follows:

• Khun Vichien aged 36 was sentenced to 41 years in Prison.

• Khun Tongchai aged 21 was sentenced to 21 years and 6 months in Prison.

• Khun Anuwat aged 33 was sentenced to 46 years and 6 months in Prison.
