Suspected pedophile under arrest

Following a tip-off to the anti-trafficking authorities in Chonburi, police have charged American Christopher Lee Hof, 56, with indecently assaulting two Cambodian boys aged 13 and 14 after meeting them in Walking Street and taking them to his apartment. He gave them 1,000 baht but instructed them to say nothing to anyone. Police said that Hof was an engineer with business interests in Pattaya. He hotly denied the sex charges but prosecutors said they had many statements and witnesses.
