Erasing a concubine

8 01 2020

While doing a bit of catching up and on the topic of erasing, the fate of the king’s favorite and then dumped concubine should get some attention, not least because there’s been all kinds of rumors about Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi.

A quick refresher on the dumping:

It seems that now he’s king, Vajiralongkorn’s nastier actions can be more easily covered-up, when compared with his three earlier bust-ups. As such, there’s been nothing in the media about Sineenat since she was thrown out of the palace. About the only English-language reporting we can find is at the Thai Alliance for Human Rights, which seems comprehensively blocked in Thailand.

The most recent of these posts is dated 26 November 2019. It is a Facebook post from 22 November and translated by Ann Norman. It states:

More News on King Vajiralonkorn’s Abuse of His Former Concubine Goy and Her Relatives

รายงานข่าวการรื้อบ้านคนดังที่ท่าวังผา ต่อจากรายงานครั้งที่แล้วเมื่อ 5พย.62
News report on the demolition of the home of the star[let] at Tha Wang Pha [King Vajiralongkorn’s ex-Royal Consort Goy] since the last report on the 5th of November 2019

สถานการณ์บริเวณรอบๆบ้านสีเหลือง3ชั้น หลังงามที่อ.ท่าวังผา จ.น่าน ยังตึงเครียด ตัวบ้านวันนี้ถูกรื้อเรียบร้อยแล้ว (รูปที่1 คือรปเดิมขณะถูกรื้อ) แต่ขณะนี้ใครก็เข้าไปถ่ายรูปไม่ได้ เพราะมีแผงเหล็กกั้นถนนทุกแยกที่จะเข้าถึงตัวบ้าน (ตามรูปที่2-6 คือรูปปัจจุบันที่ได้ใหม่เป็นภาพบริเวณรอบบ้าน) พร้อมมีทหารและตำรวจสันติบาล อยู่เวรยามควบคุม (ห้ามรถวิ่งผ่านหรือเดินเข้าไปถ่ายรูปตัวบ้านและเจ้าหน้าที่ที่ยืนเฝ้า)
The situation at the perimeter of the beautiful yellow three-storied house at Amper Tha Wang Pa, Naan Province, still is tense/serious. The house today has been now been demolished; it is completed. The first picture is from before, but at this time no one can get to it to take a picture because there is a iron stand protecting the road at each road that approaches the house (as in pictures 2-6 that are current new pictures of the area surrounding the house) as well as soldiers and security police taking turns controlling the area (they forbid cars to pass or for anyone to walk by and take pictures of the house or the officers guarding it.)

ข้าวของในบ้านที่รื้อถูกนำไปเก็บไว้ที่ค่ายทหาร ม.พัน15
The things in the house that was demolished have been taken for storage at a military camp.

ผู้อาศัยในบ้านหลังงามต้องหลบไปอยู่กระท่อมกลางนา เพราะไม่กล้าไปพักกับเพื่อนบ้านเนื่องจากผู้ให้ที่พักกลัวจะเดือดร้อนจากเจ้าหน้าที่ ส่วนน้องสาวคนดัง ที่ชื่อ ก.ไก่เหมือนกัน ขณะนี้ยังไม่แน่ชัดว่าถูกจับ พร้อมพี่สาว หรือว่าอยู่ที่ใหน …จะได้ติดตามรายงานข่าวให้ทราบต่อไป ( ขอขอบคุณนักข่าวพลเมืองในพื้นที่ส่งข้อมูลให้)
The people living in the beautiful house had get out of the way and go live in a little hut in the center of a field. Because they didn’t dare go live with neighbors, as those neighbors were afraid the officers would cause them distress. As for the younger sister of the star[let], also named “G.” [I thought Goy’s younger sister was named “ณัฐพร อุ่นพรม Nattaporn Umprom” but she probably has a nickname], at this time it isn’t clear whether she was captured at the same time as her older sister or where she is. I will keep following this news.

It is generally accepted that Sineenat is imprisoned somewhere in Thailand – various prisons have been mentioned – but the rumors of a week or so ago that she had died or been killed have not been given much credence. Still, as Sineenat has been completely wiped from the public record and because Thailand is so hopelessly censored, self-censored and people are frightened of the erratic and grasping king, no one can officially have any knowledge of this young woman’s fate.
