Robert Konstantin Tschopp was taken into custody July 27 in his Takientia home. An unrelated 13-year-old boy was inside the home at the time of the raid.
Robert Konstantin Tschopp has been arrested and charged with molesting underage boys and possessing child pornography.
Anti-Human Traffic and Child Abuse Center Director Parisorn Noja, who accompanied police on the raid, accused the former Pattaya beer bar owner of luring young boys to his home where he paid them 200-300 baht for sexual services.
He also alleged the Swiss national would have them pose for pornographic photos and videos. A number of such pictures and movies were found in Tschopp’s home.
The suspect is also accused of pimping out underage children for friends.
Tschopp denied all charges, claiming the children simply came to his house to swim in his pool.
