The ‘Phoenix’ boat captain, chief engineer and boat owner are now in custody at the Phuket Provincial Prison. The Thai ‘owner’ of ‘Phoenix’ remains in custody after she surrendered following the issuing of an arrest warrant over the weekend.

 

The Chalong Police have already pressed charges of a reckless act causing death, serious injuries, mental and bodily harm on the ‘Phoenix’ boat captain Somjing Boontham who remains in custody at the Phuket Provincial Prison as well.

 

Yesterday (July 16) 26 year old Woraluck Rueakchaiyakan, the registered Thai owner of ‘Phoenix’ and the vessel’s chief engineer, 56 year old Onan Kanhayotee, were in custody at the Phuket Provincial Court.

Definitely the owner and then track down the real owners. The captain is truly responsible but like every Thai employee he was squeezed by the owner.

I recall a deckhand  giving me grief when I simply asked  to have in hand a life preserver a few years back.

 

We were on the ferry headed to Ko Larn and my companion  didn't know how to swim.

 

Safety is a ways off in the Kingdom.

 

It'll be interesting to find out who really owned the boat.

 

I'll bet he's scrambling right now.

 

Anyone want to bet on who owns it?

Just wonder why they never put a bus and minivan drivers behind bars, after causing carnage ?

Because it's always the failing brakes which are responsible, or the entire vehicle which "lost control" ...

Meanwhile in Hawaii a greedy boat operator and some tourists are lucky that they were

not killed and the boat sunk by a lava bomb. Somebody was very kind to them all.

No reset button on Death!

So the Chinese hubby who actually owns the boat company, as opposed to his in-name Thai wife main shareholder, isn't coming to rescue his beloved one from jail and take responsibility???? Shocking!!!

 

Last report I read here, I believe it said the Chinese guy was out of the country...  Although in this case, if he were back in China, the Chinese authorities if they can find him might well be willing to extradite him back to Thailand to face charges.
