Briton Arrested with Roasted Human Foetuses for Use in Black Magic Ritual

Ian MacKinnon, Telegraph (London), May 18, 2012

A British man has been arrested in Thailand after being found with six foetuses that had been roasted and covered in gold leaf as part of a black magic spirit ritual.

The corpses of the unborn baby boys were found packed in a suitcase in his hotel room in Bangkok’s Chinatown district.

Chow Hok Kuen, 28, who holds a British passport but is of Taiwanese origin, confessed to police that he had bought the foetuses several days earlier for almost £4,000. The source of the foetuses is unclear.

He said he intended to smuggle them to Taiwan where they would be sold for as much as six times what he paid on the internet to people who believe that their possession would bring wealth and good luck.

The man told police that that he was hired by another Taiwanese man, named Kun Yichen, who regularly travelled to Thailand to collect the ritualistic foetuses.

Worship of the foetuses—observed by some on the Chinese community—is a Buddhist-animist practice known as Kuman Thong that is described in ancient Thai manuscripts.

In Thai black magic rituals, also observed among some Chinese communities, preserved foetuses are believed to bring good fortune to the owner and are often kept in shrines within homes or businesses.

It required male foetuses surgically removed from the womb that were then dried as black magic incantations were said over the body, before it was covered in gold leaf. Kuman Thong means “golden baby boy”.

Lore has it that if the owner reveres the ritual foetus, its spirit will warn and protect its possessor of danger. In practice the foetuses have been replaced by wooden effigies.

Chow Hok Kuen faces up to a year in jail and a fine of £40 for possession of the foetuses, which police said showed development of between two and eight months.

Officers made the gruesome discovery in the hotel in the Yaowarat district of Bangkok, where they found that the foetuses had also been tattooed and were adorned with religious threads.

Col Wiwat Kamhamnan, of Bangkok police, said: “He said he planned to sell the foetuses to clients who believe they will make them lucky and rich.”

Abortion is illegal in Thailand unless the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest, or poses a threat to the mother’s health.

But women’s rights groups estimate that up to 400,000 Thai woman undergo abortions each year.

Last year two undertakers and woman who collected foetuses from illegal abortion clinics were jailed after more than 2,000 corpses were found at a temple morgue when the furnace for the crematorium broke down.

    A “British” man? Really? These people are NOT British by any sense of the word. The media really makes me ill calling this man British! We are not interchangable as they would like us to be. It is the same thing in America. For example in Texas  an illgal alien gets caught breaking the law and the media referes to the illegal as a Texan. They want you to think he is White.

  • haroldcrews

    The headline is misleading but at least the article plainly starts with the man being Taiwanese in origin.

  • loyalwhitebriton

    Chow Hok Kuen is about as British as Barak Hussein Obama is American!

  • “Chow Hok Kuen, 28, who holds a British passport but is of Taiwanese origin.”

    This guy will NEVER be British!

  • I love those English names ” Chok Hok Kuen.”

  • Negroes rioting in London, muslim gangs raping and molesting young girls. When will the bongo bongo madnes end ?

  • Dried foetuses covered in gold leaf?  As good luck charms?

    Really?  REALLY!?!

    Reminds me of the witchdoctors in deepest, darkest Afrika who persue, kidnap, kill, dismember and then sell the body parts of Albino’s as “good luck charms” to local dupes who still believe in this claptrap…

    And this is the ‘diversity’ we’re importing into America by the planeload…

    Lord Protect Us…

  • Definitely a Briton, just like the British Briton caught on camera trying to rape the Chinese girl.

  •  If this were the Guardian or an American news source, I would expect a stock image of neo-Druids at Stonehenge to be attached.

    Calling John Engelman, calling John Engelman.  Defense needed for a member of the model minority who never, ever commit crimes and whose high IQ makes them a perfect fit for societies founded by White Europeans.  Calling John Engelman.  You are needed here stat.

  • For the Good People who speak of White Genocide, here is yet one more piece of proof.

    When they get away with labeling non-whites as German, Brit, Swede, French, etc., they delete us.  I mean, they take the meaning away.  If a muslim can be German then what is a German?  They’re stealing our Identity from us and this is a part of White Genocide.

    Here lies the problem with this “Briton”: Chow Hok Kuen, 28, who holds a British passport but is of Taiwanese origin. The headline would have me imagine a blond haired blue eyed debble.

      According to the Marxists anyone who manages to get to Britain is a British citizen.

    Care for a spot of tea and a cucumber sandwich Chow..I mean Nigel?

  • In authentic kuman thong, the foetus was stillborn in the mothers womb, not aborted. The point was to respect the child who never received a name and would not otherwise be able to rest. In return, the spirit was believed to protect the possessor from evil. God knows what a deliberately aborted child would do to the living.

    I’m betting those children were murdered then sold.

    There’s nothing evil about kuman thong as it was traditionally practiced, but today’s Asians will do anything for money and we don’t want this mentality here.

    But doesn’t such a mentality exist here already? What about Pepsi using cell lines from aborted babies? Sure babies aren’t being aborted for the cells, or by Pepsi. But the tissue did, originally,  come from baby tissue sold commercially and this is morally wrong.
