Late-night conflict: Move Forward Party MP’s apology after Ekkamai eatery dispute

A heated dispute during the early hours of August 4 at an Ekkamai eatery in Bangkok led a prominent Move Forward Party (MFP) MP to publically clarify events and issue an apology.
Chorayuth Chaturapornprasith took to Facebook to share his account of occasions and refute on-line allegations suggesting he initiated the brawl at the Ekkamai eatery, one of many prime culinary locations within the capital. He stated unequivocally that he was not the instigator of the altercation however was instead the recipient of an unprovoked assault by an unidentified man.
Delving into the small print of the night time, Chorayuth explained how the peaceable atmosphere of his favourite Ekkamai eatery was disrupted. Together with pals, the MP was indulging in a late-night meal, once they were approached by a man who triggered a verbal confrontation that quickly spiralled out of control.
According to Chorayuth, this unidentified man initially kicked a chair and returned to his desk after a quick dialogue with his group. However, he reportedly returned to persistently harass a woman in Chorayuth’s firm.
“I felt compelled to protect the lady from additional harassment which ultimately resulted in me being bodily assaulted. The man slapped and punched me and I reacted instinctively in self-defence.”
In parallel, Supawadee Tungprom, the woman emotionally distressed by the incident, aired her model of the occasions on the Ekkamai eatery on Facebook. Backed claimed to have had no previous contact with the perpetrator, whom she accused of manually assaulting her by inserting his arms around her neck.
Thanks to the intervention of native legislation enforcement, hostilities were quelled and a peaceable resolution was reached on-site. The unidentified man extended an apology to Supawadee, and surprisingly, agreed not to press costs in opposition to Chorayuth.
As information of the altercation attracted public consideration, triggering considerable dialogue across social media platforms, the focus shifted to the MFP MP’s online clarification of his involvement and the sudden conclusion of the incident..
