THE BODY of a Thai tourist who was shot dead by a lone attacker in Strasbourg will return home as soon as the proof of identification is completed, French police have told the victim’s wife.

 

The process normally takes seven to 15 days, Thai Foreign Ministry spokesperson Busadee Santipitaksat said.

 

Naiyana, wife of Anupong Suebsamarn, 45, who was killed in a shooting at a Christmas market, is now in a better state of mind and is regaining her strength, Busadee reported.

 

She based her statement on a report from the Thai embassy in France, which sent diplomats to Strasbourg to help facilitate legal procedures concerning the return of Anupong’s body.

 

Naiyana is also entitled to the compensation given by the French government to the family of terrorism victims. 

 

Anupong was among the three people killed in the shooting, which left many injured. The French government has upped its security alert to the maximum level following the incident, which has turned the city, usually crowded with tourists and visitors, into a ghost town.

 

The authorities are still hunting for the suspected attacker, a 29-year-old Strasbourg native identified as Cherif C, who cried “Allahu Akbar” as he opened fire and stabbed passers-by.

 

Meanwhile, Immigration police chief Pol Lt-General Surachet Hakparn met diplomats at the French Embassy in Bangkok, where he was assured that French authorities would provide assistance to Naiyana.

 

Surachet said Anupong’s family had contacted his bureau regarding the return of the body, adding that his bureau will fully cooperate and facilitate the return. French diplomats have also given assurances that their government will do its best to provide safety for tourists. 

 

Meanwhile, deputy police spokesman Colonel Krissana Pattanacharoen said local police has been providing protection for the foreign diplomatic corps by deploying police officials to embassies and diplomatic agencies. He said the measures have been taken even though Thailand is not a target or a party in any related feuds.

This is a truly sad event. A Thai man shot dead in France, a traumatised widow.

All due to the lovely mantra of muslim ideology.

The French police have now shot dead the Islamist.

Meanwhile may I say RIP to Anupong, and condolences to his wife, friends and colleagues.

Another victim of the enlightened policies and beliefs of the muslims. 

Anapong would have had a better holiday in the south of Thailand.

Muslims only kill teachers, doctors, nurses, police, administration personel and the military in the muslim south. He would not have qualified..

Hello,
there it is not reciprocal courtesy.
the problem of Algerian and Thai is not comparable to the victims of attacks.
In France, since 1986, there has been a guarantee fund for victims of terrorist acts.
Any victim of an attack on the French soil (deceased, injured, traumatized) benefits from compensation, it being understood that it is the relatives of the deceased who will receive this indemnity.
Should not exaggerate either.
There are some who do it very well.

It is no wonder the French economy is in so much debt. They are paying off victims of terror almost daily.

You call a French citizen an Algerian. Are all the non French people you allowed to enter the country over the years and have caused so many problems, now being called non French citizens by you? You need to make up your mind. (In a non racist way)

the roots of "this Algerian" are "Algerian".
He only has French nationality.
These are not racist words, but a reality.
If you are Norwegian, you can be born in Gabon, you will still be Norwegian.
Only nationality, if you ask
and if it is accepted will make you a blond and white Gabonese.

One of the victim is also a man, father of 3,  originally  from Afghanistan living in France. He was also a muslin. So in that case, a fanatic Muslim killed a muslin at a Christmas market.

True. The loopy ex muslim shot randomly and killed a Thai, Italian and 2 French people. We should not forget all those injured.

I doubt this muslim chap was a fanatic as such. He was a common criminal with mass murderous intent. More a psycho than a fanatic.

RIP to all killed and I hope the injured are being catered for.
