Security camera footage shows Furlong Lee, 23, and Schneider, 22, spraying a message on the walls of the Tha Pae Gate in the northern province of Chiang Mai at around 4 a.m. Thursday. "This is out of character for her".

"They admitted to the crime", Police Major Anon Cherdchutrakulthong told Reuters.

Chiang Mai is Thailand's fourth-largest city and tourists can visit the historic walled parts of the city, some which date back to the 13th Century.

She said she is overwhelmed by the charges against her daughter.

Schneider's mother said she was travelling in Thailand alone and has a "passion for travelling" and had made lots of friends travelling around the world.

"She has to face it. But I said stay strong and breathe and go through it". She said that the "routine" action, which looks like a march of shame, would have been the case if it was domestic or foreign-born suspects.


Canadian consular officials have arrived in the city and are speaking with the suspects, according to Global Affairs Canada.

Schneider said she asked her daughter why she did what she did.

She said she plans to fly to Thailand to support her daughter while she awaits trial.

The words "Scouser Lee" were painted on the wall, apparently a reference to the English city of Liverpool.

They have been charged with vandalising registered ancient artefacts, a charge that carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a million baht (£23,500) fine. Thai police did not confirm Lee's hometown.
