The woman hired the taxi to take her back to her hotel, but instead
was driven to a coconut plantation, where she was beaten and raped.
After the attack she was then robbed of her cash and dumped by the
road to walk home.
On Sunday, police charged a 21-yr-old local taxi driver with rape.
They are questioning an accomplice who used his pick-up to dump the
woman referred to as "Lily" (not real name) afterwards and then robbed
her of 1,700 Thai baht (32)
Police on Koh Samui say that the 21-yr-old driver picked up the woman,
an English Language teacher, as a fare early on Saturday morning in
Chaweang Beach, but drove past the woman's lodgings in Lamai Beach and
took her instead to house in coconut plantation.
"He dragged her out of the car against her will and beat her in the
process. He then raped her in the house," said Paiboon Krajakchan, the
deputy police commander.
"His friend arrived in a pick-up and then transferred the semi-
conscious woman to a pick-up truck and dumped her beside the road near
Lamai. He took all her money.
"We are treating this matter seriously. It is important that Koh Samui
is seen as a safe destination for tourists," he said.
Koh Samui has been the scene of a number of rapes of British and
foreign tourists. The most infamous case was that of Katherine Horton,
who was raped and murdered on Lamai Beach on New Year's Day 2006 by
two fisherman.
The fishermen were sentenced to death, reduced later to life
