Amazing fall from grace for Pattaya big shot Luke Cook - respected expat to death row in Thailand

Recommended Posts

lot of people saying its a shame he got caught up in this world when he had a good business,but its likely he brought the business cuz he had a lot of cash he needed to launder as drugs was his line of business.could be wrong but i wouldnt be shocked if that was the case,as a lot of business in pattaya are just fronts to 'clean' cash.

When people have been in Thailand long enough to know drug smuggling is something to avoid, not much sympathy. When we consider the guy already was living comfortably, even less sympathy. The sad apologists need to find their moral compass.

I agree with what you say Sir, I got yo know them as well and the 3 kids. 2 as a couple plus one she had previously with another french guy. My wife and I had respect and confidence for Luke. In the frame of his marine business he helped me with clearing customs, unloading the boat from container and fix all the details to get the boat on water. He was a nice person to deal with, very correct prices for his services, respectfull, involved in what he was doing for me. All documentation in due form and on time. So this guy had full respect from me while he was very helpfull and honest with us. Not the common big mouth expat working here. I recomended him to a friend doing the same operation and he was also very satisfied. I always saw him, even by chance in town driving either his brown Pajero or his Ducati never a Merc or BMW. I also know his boat and it's far away to be a "luxury yacht" although it was a good size cat.

 

I saw his wife twice with the kids. I found her to be a "pompous idiot" pretending to be a layer having an "influent family"....bad luck my wife who is a true one(not thai) found after few chats she didn't know anything about this kind of job. I saw HER driving a Merc..

My wife and I felt from our chairs when we saw them arrested at Swampy last year and even more when we learnt the reasons behind. Although the thai justice should have strong evidences  against them to put them in the death corridor, I still have hard time to believe the Luke I knew has been involved in all that nasty sh..t.

As a summary yes indeed very sad for the kids

 

 

 

 

Very nice guy. .. like that catholic priest that took the boys camping, very nice guy like the one that gives your children poison, get real man. While we all believe in taking responsibilty for our actions we all know teenagers are adventurous & susceptible to peer pressure & party atmosphere. Keep the poison peddlers in jail forever.

Out of curiosity; how do you check-in 500 kgs of anything onto a flight to Australia without being noticed? Assumingly it was brought as excess luggage it must have cost  fortune as the fee is 1% of the single first class tariff. Just wondering ..............

Really? Is the owner still there? Did you read the article? He's on death row awaiting execution for drug smuggling.....Pretty sure he's not going to be there, again, ever!

No excuse for any "mixed up with drugs". As long as anyone has gone overboard, death sentence is waiting for you! However, the real winner is the wife's family laughing to the bank.

Living the good life but wanting to live a really, really, really good life.  Hello Mr. Greed.  I'm sure Mr. Greed will make a wonderful cell mate, and if executed, he'll hold Luke's hand at the end.  Such a sad story... :coffee1:

Yes i guess he wont be leaving for awhile anyway, sounds like a nice man and very polite , pity he got mixed up with bikies , drugs ,criminals etc 

 

its alleged he drove the killer of the drug importer to the cambodian border,well its not alleged anymore i guess

 

i am told the Australian Feds had undercover guys in pattaya , im not sure if its true , i reckon that Glitter man  could of been undercover cop.

So who deals with drugs is a nice and polite man...
