PHUKET:-- Karon Police will seek arrest warrants to be issued tomorrow (Feb 13) for two men who threatened their rivals at gunpoint over land dispute on the dirt road that leads to Nui Beach.

 

Col Prasan Harngotha Chief Karon Police confirmed to The Phuket News today (Feb 12) that his officers will seek arrest warrants to be issued for Paitoon Silapawisut and another man who police have so far identified only as “Mr Man” over the confrontation, which occurred on Jan 28.

 

Arrest warrants are to be sought for charges of carrying a firearm in public, having a firearm without a permit to carry, and joint attack on a person/s (affray), Col Prasan said.

This is an on-going mafia-thug dispute.

They have claimed this isolated little beach as their own and have brandished guns at would be visitors previously.

The fact they are still there indicates high level support of some kind.

Whoever decided to park where they did and keep their cam going was at least thinking a little bit.  I wonder which of the thugs has more than a room temp iq to think about rolling the camera while the activities took place.

Always amazes me when I read "Police will seek arrest warrants tomorrow"

Do police need to go someplace and apply for a warrant to arrest a person committing a crime ?

In America they have to go to the DA's office.

In New Zealand, if a crime is being committed a policeman is present he / she will arrest the offender immediately, who will probably appear in court within 2 or 3 days.
