Female assault victims may not go to police in country where an estimated 90% of rapes are unreported
A major police academy in Thailand has announced it will ban women from enrolling , sparking accusations of gender discrimination.
The Royal Police Cadet Academy (RPCA), on the western outskirts of Bangkok, accepts about 300 applicants a year. But from 2019 it will admit only men. Worawut Sripakhon, an RPCA captain, did not offer a reason for the new rule, saying: “It’s policy. We’re not allowed to give any more information than that.”
