Further to poohy's post on the previous page, it was just reported on BBC World News that he has been in a court in Georgia and will be detained there for 3 months pending his extradition to the UK. Apparently he is a suicide risk.

Your comment is over the top, really, wonder what would be your position if the man had died and the woman had survived.

Or you are the kind of 'the women are always innocent' type ?

His position is completely irrelevant.

The law is pretty clear:

  • He is the owner of the boat.
  • Ge was on board, hence he was the skipper.
  • The boat had an accident when it was under his command.
  • Someone died under his command.

He is guilty. Plain an simple. Because: thai is the law! The only question is the punishment. As he was known as reckless driver, was drunk, and did not show up in court: obviously the punishment is harsh.

Ok, i understand what the law says, in this case it's too harsh imo.

If i was doing stupid things like driving fast boats, while drunk, with a consenting buddy, and i happened to die while doing that, i would not want my buddy to be jailed.

Like it or not, this was my point.
