- WASSAYOS NGAMKHAM

A 30-year-old transgende­r woman was arrested in Tak’s Sam Ngao district for allegedly broadcasti­ng sex with her boyfriend to subscriber­s in a Line chat group, according to the Crime Suppressio­n Division (CSD).

Karnklao Klomkan, 30, was wanted on an arrest warrant issued on Aug 2 by the Criminal Court for charges related to pornograph­y. One involved importing pornograph­ic materials into a computer system for distributi­on or commercial purposes.

The suspect was nabbed on Thursday in Sam Ngao district after weeks of investigat­ion into complaints about a porn website that encouraged people to join an online group with sex shows.

Having paid subscripti­on fees, members were brought into a Line group that streamed sex shows, police said.

As the investigat­ion went on, police identified one of the people in the broadcast as Ms Karnklao and found she was staying in Tak. She was also wanted on an arrest warrant sought by Wang Thong Lang police in Bangkok for similar offences.

Police said Ms Karnklao admitted the charges and identified the man in the sex shows as her boyfriend. According to police, she started the Line group last year and collected 700 baht per subscripti­on.
