Hundreds of nude photos depicting the official mistress of Thailand’s King Maha Vajiralongkorn have been leaked to anti-monarchy activists, a report said Tuesday.
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, according to The Daily Beast.
“There were 1,400 photographs from four different iPhones. Some of them were very intimate photos,” one of the recipients, British commentator Andrew MacGregor Marshall, told the outlet.
Marshall said that 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.
“I made the decision not to publish them,” said Marshall. “They had obviously been sent to me without her consent, but also I just saw this is as a factional palace game.”
Marshall said that 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.”
Reports at the time of Wongvajirapakdi’s detention in October 2019 said that she had tried to usurp the queen.
Marshall also said that he received a threat around the time he was sent the SD card.
“Earlier in August my house in Scotland was surveilled and a threat was left on the doorstep so it was quite a worrying time and the last thing I wanted was to get dragged into palace politics,” he told The Daily Beast.
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.
“From the timing of the whole thing it was clearly an attempt to sabotage her return to court,” Marshall told the outlet. “In any royal court you get factional fighting. It is a notorious element of palace life. When you are a monarch with a wife and queen and you appoint consort, it is a recipe for vicious infighting.”
The eccentric billionaire king, 68, was reportedly rushed to the hospital following a coronavirus scare in October, but has not since been reported to be in ill health.
