A Dutch man has been sentenced to 22 years in jail for sexually abusing children in Thailand.


Serial pedophile Raymond Klunder, 51, was arrested at his home in the Smorprong area of Hua Hin in November 2017.


Klunder, who had lived in Hua Hin for several years, had worked in real estate and as a music teacher in the resort town.


At the time of his arrest a ten year old boy was found inside the property, while another boy arrived at the house as Klunder was being led away by police.

Taken as evidence was stained bed linen, 6 computers, 2 mobile phones, 2 tablets, memory cards and CDs.


Officers from Thailand’s Department of Special Investigations made the arrest after acting on a tip off from the police in the Netherlands, where Klunder is also wanted on charges of sexually abusing children, De Telegraaf reported.


Klunder, who admitted the charges against him, used to lure boys to his property by telling them he could swim in his pool.


He would also give the boys food and admitted to later having sex with them and recording videos which we would distribute to his pedophile friends.


At the time locals told Thaivisa how “young Thai boys” were regularly seen visiting his home.


Klunder’s social media profiles included topless photos of him with young boys.
