Majid Mohammed Said Al Gheilani, 50, was charged with separating a minor from her guardian May 11 after the girl’s aunt, Lamun Sidachomphu, was called to Pattaya Police Station to help sort out a confrontation between the Omani and her niece.
Majid Mohammed Said Al Gheilani was arrested for separating a minor from her guardian.
The teenager told police Al Gheilani had picked her up on Beach Road five days earlier, offering her 1,000 baht a day for a month to stay with him. After five days, however, the Omani had a change of heart and demanded the return of 2,000 baht cash and a 2,750 baht mobile phone he had bought for her.
The girl refused and the argument ended up before police. The girl contacted her aunt, who insisted Al Gheilani be charged with taking the underage girl. She then feigned ignorance of what her niece had been doing, asking why a hotel would allow a minor to go to the Omani’s hotel room.
Gheilani claimed he didn’t know the girl was 17 and put up a defiant front, telling police he wasn’t afraid to be jailed. The police took him at his word and locked him up.
