PHUKET: Mervyn Harding, the Brit expat living in Rawai who was charged with attacking a dog in Nai Harn last week, has been released on B90,000 bail, police have confirmed.

 

Harding was presented with charges of animal cruelty and trespass in Phuket Provincial Court last Thursday (July 18) after he was caught on CCTV attacking a dog with a metal rod in the early minutes last Tuesday morning (July 16). (See stories here and here.)

 

 Harding was released just hours after his arrival at the court, The Phuket News confirmed today, despite police assurances that he had been denied bail at police request.

Funny that they want to deny bail for a man that attacks a dog and not murderers, rapists, etc

I dunno, you can get bail for killing and eating a black panther if you're impotent important enough.

I remember a murder case wherein bail was denied even to two Burmese scapegoats, who confessed during torture, buy no other evidence was present. They are still sitting on death row and waiting for a supreme court decision, which was due 10 month ago. Anything can happen in Thailand.

Must pay all vet bills, beat him like a dog while in detention (impersonating a grab driver) and then deport him for no less than 5 years....

 

you judge a culture on how one treats their animals...
