Bangkokian busted for running illegal porn site

BANGKOK police have tracked down and arrested the man behind the “VK Nen-Jook” page on the European social network VK.

Kornchai Klaiklueng, head of the CyberCrime Investigation Bureau (CCIB), said the case came to light when a woman complained that her photos and video clips had been posted on the site without permission.

Chartpon (surname not given), a 27-year-old office worker, was caught at his home in Bangkok’s Pathum Wan neighbourhood. Police also seized a desktop PC, an iPhone and the man’s bank book.

The raid was carried out under a search warrant issued by the Bangkok South Criminal Court.

Chartpon, whose VK Nen-Jook page has some 59,000 followers, is accused of illegally advertising online gambling sites and distributing pornography.

The suspect admitted to opening up to seven secret pages on the social networking site and said he had a total of 200,000 followers. He said he opened the “VK Nen-Jook” page late last year to seek more followers and earn money to cover his gambling debts.

He added that he got his hands on 50,000 pornographic photos and clips and made as much as 50,000 baht a month advertising gambling sites on the page.

The suspect has been taken to Lumpini Police Station for legal proceedings and CCIB has contacted other victims to file a complaint if their rights have been violated.
