Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi, the mistress of Thailand King Maha Vajiralongkorn, is again in news as part of an alleged scandal where her over 1400 $exually explicit photographs, mostly nude, were anonymously leaked to anti-monarchy activists outside the country. Hundreds of nude photos depicting the official mistress of Thailand’s King Maha Vajiralongkorn have been leaked to anti-monarchy activists, a report said on December 22.
Some 1,400 selfies of Sineenat “Koi” Wongvajirapakdi, many of them sexually explicit, were allegedly leaked earlier this year to prominent critics of the Thai monarchy living abroad, as per the Daily Beast. Marshall said he received a letter, initially sent to an address he no longer uses, containing an SD card with the photos. The letter bore what he presumes to be “a fake return address” associated with German intelligence headquarters in Berlin, he told the Daily Beast.
Marshall said he received the mysterious letter in August, around the same time that Wongvajirapakdi, 35, was released from detention following a feud with Thailand’s queen to join the king’s harem of ‘sex soldiers’. While Marshall did not publicly release any of the photos, he confirmed that he had received them in support of another critic of the Thai monarchy, Pavin Chachavalpongpun, who did release them.
Notably, this incident comes after Wongvajirapakdi was released from detention earlier in the year after serving ten months in a correctional facility for ‘feuding’ with the queen. The leak is thought to be connected to the ongoing rivalry between the King’s mistress and his wife and many believe that it is an attempt to defame her. The return of Koi to the palace was also vehemently opposed by King’s wife Queen Suthida and Princess Bajrakitiyabha.
Thailand King Maha Vajiralongkorn had appointed Wongvajirapakdi as his official mistress in 2019. Sineenat, who is trained as a pilot in Thailand and abroad, had served in the King’s royal bodyguard unit and also held the rank of Major General in Thailand King’s Guard.
