PHUKET:-- Patong Police Chief Col Sujin Nilabodi has promised to help the family of noodle vendor Aroon Thongplab, who was shot by an drunken off-duty Phuket police officer on Bangla Rd Tuesday last week.

 

“At this stage, officers from the Phuket office of the Ministry of Justice have already come to discuss this with us,” Col Sujin told reporters at Patong Police Station this morning (Mar 2). 

 

“If the victim’s family asks for any compensation or help, we will file a request to the Ministry of Justice Phuket office so they can provide help and safety for them,” he said.

I would have thought assistance with medical bills would have been instantly charged to the police officer who did the shooting ............!!!!

He is Thai, assuming he was treated in a public hospital, the medical bills were 30THB.

The hospital could of course try to recoup the real costs from the police officer.

 The medical bills will be significantly higher if the victim wishes proper care and support at his home. The 30 baht scheme does not provide the medical care, drugs , and rehabilitation support of physiotherapy and respiratory assistance or all the  equipment the  poor man will need just to stay alive once he leaves hospital.

No chance of him being treated in the International hospitals?
