The wife of a former mayor of a village in the north-eastern province of Kachin has been sentenced to a 10-year prison term after being convicted of adultery.
A provincial court in Kachine sentenced the wife, Siti Katiyana, to 10 years in jail on Tuesday after finding her guilty of adultery, adultery against her husband and adultery with a public servant, the official Thai news agency said.
Katiyanas family is from the rural region of Kichwa and was previously married to the current mayor of the village, Sainathan Mohammadi, the Kachina news agency reported.
The wife was married to Mohammdi at the time she was charged, and the marriage was annulled two years ago.
The court heard that the couple’s marriage was a violation of the court’s order, and that the marriage had not been annulling and they were still married at the point of their separation, according to the news agency.
Siti Kattiyan had been charged in May 2017 after an online petition by an alleged rape victim claimed that she was raped by her husband, Sariyat Prakorn, who was a mayor at the village in Kichwal province, the news report said.
Sariyattan Prakorns alleged that the wife forced him to have sex with her while he was sleeping and when she returned home from work at 7.30am on July 5, 2017, she took her lover to the family home and made him strip and touch her breasts, legs and arms, according the news website.
Sini Prakans’ family members and her lawyer declined to comment on the charges, the report said, without providing further details.
Sri Lankan court rejects rape case by former mayor Sariya PrakarnsSri Lanka’s Supreme Court rejected an appeal by the former mayor’s family on Tuesday against a rape allegation lodged against him.
The Supreme Court has rejected an application by Sariyan Prakannakan, who is in Sri Lanka on a tourism business, to withdraw the rape allegation.
The case was brought by former Sri Lankan ambassador to Britain Sariyo, Siret Prakanna, on behalf of Sariyangan Parnasamy, the former ambassador’s wife, who also lodged the complaint.
Siriyan Parnasesy, the ambassador’s lawyer, told AFP news agency that her client’s claim was unfounded and that he had not made any sexual advances toward her and that she had not accused him of rape.
The former mayor was arrested last year and charged with rape, and was given a suspended sentence by the Kichwai district court.
The Kachins court on Tuesday also ordered the arrest of Sri Lankans who have visited the Kachiwai village where the case was filed.
It was not immediately clear whether the court will release the three men in custody, but the three are due to appear in court again on November 23.SRI LANKA’S CONSERVATIVE MILITARY: THE UNMASKING OF SOUTH-EAST CHINAA senior South Korean official on Tuesday dismissed claims that Seoul is the victim of a coup by the North Korean regime and said that it was “unthinkable” to believe that a coup could be staged in Seoul.
In an interview with a local news outlet, Cho said that Seoul’s political establishment is not interested in cooperating with the North, but instead, was trying to bring down the government.
He said that a military coup would be a disaster for South Korea.
The UN’s highest-ranking South Korean diplomat, Kim Kwan-jin, has been under pressure for months over comments made during a visit to the country by Kim Jong-un, who has called for the creation of a new, unified Korean peninsula.
In his interview with the Seoul National University’s university campus, Kim said that he was in no way interested in collaborating with the regime.
But Kim said he did not want to get embroiled in a “political situation”.
“I am not interested at all in collaborating.
If there was a coup, it would be catastrophic for South Korean society,” Kim said, according with Yonhap news agency, citing an official source.
He was referring to the military coup in September 2018 that ousted former President Park Geun-hye after a popular vote that did not include her party.
