The model who posed naked in public wearing nothing but a few Thai traditional accessories is preparing to turn herself in after her nude shots went viral online, upsetting the officials of the district she was posing in.
The staff behind the photoshoot, which took place in Bangkok’s Bang Khun Tien district, have contacted police and said they would hand over the model to the authorities within a few days as she still needs some time to get over the drama.
While the district officials thought the photos could have been very old, it turns out that the shoot took place as recently as October on the wooden bridge to the mangrove, which has been sealed off from the public for renovation, according to Chaturong Ponglamjiek, director of Bang Khun Tien district.
Pol. Lt. Yod Withitpaphathamrong, Commander of Tien Talay police department, said the model would be punished with a THB500 fine maximum for public obscenity. He also has warned citizens who want to get naked in public to think of the country’s morals and social values.
The district also wants to press further charges to the model and those responsible for the photoshoot for posting the naked photos online, which violates the Computer Crime Act.
While amused social network users have been debating whether the model is a ladyboy or not, police have not confirmed their suspicions, Matichon reported.
