Subject: 6 years for wife-torturing general's son
October 31, 1998
6 years for
An army general's son was sentenced to six years and six months in
jail yesterday for beating and torturing his wife.
Kanisorn Vivittanachart was found guilty of several offences against
Areewan Jatuthong, a former Miss Thailand runner-up.
The Criminal Court turned down a request to suspend or reduce
Kanisorn's sentence, saying the defendant was an educated man but
had shown no sign of remorse for what he had done to his wife.
Kanisorn's father is a retired army major-general.
The court said its decision was partially based on medical reports from
doctors who treated Mrs Areewan.
Mrs Areewan accused Kanisorn of beating and torturing her as well as
forcing her at gunpoint to walk naked in their neighbourhood.
According to her, on one occasion Kanisorn tortured her by dripping
hot candle wax on her body. On another occasion, he stripped and
handcuffed her and then forced her to walk back home from the
mouth of their soi.
Mrs Areewan said she was satisfied with the court ruling and would
seek compensation and punitive damages, adding a divorce had
already been settled.
