The rich in Thailand still getting away with it! Victims in "Praewa" crash said they got nothing

The debate about the rich in Thailand being allowed to get away with crime and not take responsibility for serious accidents has been stoked again. 

 

It is nearly nine years after a deadly crash that saw nine people killed in a Thammasat University van that was hit by then 16 year old Orachorn "Praewa" Thephasadin Na Ayudhya.

 

She did no prison time. Just some hours of community service. 

 

Victims hoped to get compensation. 

 

Some got nothing from the family of a tearaway teen vilified as "Nine Corpse Praewa" in Daily News. 

 

One who was injured with severely broken bones took to Twitter to say they could keep quiet no longer such was their frustration at the case. They are one of many unsatisfied in the case.

 

"TintinWarunyoo" spoke of how the person who caused the accident and her family had failed to take responsibility for what happened. 

 

She said she was lucky not to die but she had been dealt with with almost total indifference and had met Praewa once in nine years. 

 

She was even taunted by their family lawyer, she claimed. 

 

A compensation sum was agreed that was less than recommended by the court but she decided to accept to put the matter behind her.

 

But even that was not paid and she was told that the family would give her half . When she complained the lawyer told her to "see us in court". 

 

"Big mistakes should lead to the taking of big responsibility," she tweeted in Thai. 

 

It seems that the rich and famous in Thailand still laugh their heads off at that idea.

The irony is that the family name has a "Na" in it. Untouchable.

Maybe I will change my middle name to "Na".
