Police on the holiday island of Koh Samui believe that a man who stabbed a German tourist and stole gold from his Thai wife may have been recently released in an amnesty. 

 

They are checking the records of 100 men who have just been let out of jail. 

 

The 60 year old German - who was not named - and his Thai wife Yong Noiphrom, 56, from Naratiwas, were followed and ambushed by a Thai man aged about 25-30 wearing a full face helmet. 

 

The attack happened as the couple rode a motorcycle on a waterfall road between Lamai and Mae Nam.

The German was stabbed in the shoulder in the attack on Wednesday. The robber got a one baht weight gold necklace and a half baht weight bracelet. This was all worth about 30,000 baht. 

 

ONB reported that the German did not want to be pictured yesterday when the couple went to the area with the police. He was said to have been terrorized by the incident. 

 

His wife spoke about the attack. Bloodstains were found on the road surface. 

 

Police are studying CCTV and checking all 100 men released in a recent amnesty on the island.

The revolving door that is the Thai penal system.

These annual amnesty's are there purely to reduce the appallingly high number of jailed prisoners and nothing else.

We have the pleasure of one of these lucky recipients of a pardon living nearby. He has started his own 'business' raising roosters and nobody is prepared to confront him, even the landlord has given up asking for rent. The noise is driving everyone nuts! After living here 15 years I am now forced to move, perhaps out of Thailand as the place seems to be going backwards (and it never got very advanced).

 

Would it not make more sense to build larger prisons?

 

Or exterminate the filth?

And where is the connection to robbery and stabbing or gold necklace???

YES!  Especially on the Thai mafia run islands....these islands are some of the deadliest in the world, right up there with Marawi in Philippines occupied by ISIS sympathizers. He may have thought his thai wife would be protecting him...good luck with that idea.
