PHUKET:-- Local expat Eric Smulders has launched a campaign urging people to support the wife of the noodle vendor shot by a drunken off-duty Phuket police officer on Bangla Rd earlier this year.

 

Kulthida Chananan, 26, told The Phuket News on Wednesday (May 12) that so far she has received just B20,000 from the Royal Thai Police after Cpl Pornthep Channarong, an officer with the Phuket Provincial Police at the time, shot her husband Aroon Thongplab while drunk on Patong’s main nightlife entertainment street in the early hours of Feb 23.

 

Pornthep, who has been stripped of his rank and dismissed from the police force, shot noodle vendor Mr Aroon, 25, just before 6am while Mr Aroon was returning from collecting a noodle bowl from a customer down the street.

Shouldn't Pornthep  be in prison ?

 

It is already an improvement that he has been sacked. I remember a decade ago, policemen who went in the fault big time, would be forced to wear a pink hello kitty bracelet ( counterfeit one of course) for a period of time

I'd be willing to throw in if I can be assured that I'm not making some Thai lawyer's next BMW payment. 

 

The bank account is that of the wife, not lawyer.   If you donate, you are asked to forward details to the lawyer, as this will be used by Eric Smulders who has commited to matching whatever you donate (up to a cumulative total of 100,000 baht).

Well done Eric….this is a worthy cause that any number of people could gladly support.

 

But…the following condition does prompt a question…..

 

“After you make the transfer please inform me via email [email protected], by LINE ID tum_jaruwan or by mobile: 081 8931647,” Ms Jaruwan noted.

 

Why would the lawyer mentioned need to keep track of donations?

 

Honest question.

 

 

 

Because of Eric's commitment to match donations up to a cumulative maximum of 100,000 baht.   I guess that there may be some tax relief for Eric for charity donations, though this would be minor.

Absolutely heartbreaking.  Multi-million dollar settlement in any Western country.  In Thailand?

20,000 THB.

Policeman relieved of duty and not charged with assault? Are policemen exempt from criminal charges in Thailand?

Attempted murder is given a pass for off-duty cops.  They just get sacked and everything is then Ok.

I would feel better if Eric Smulders was commenting directly to this forum and clearly explaining the plan.

The 20.000 came from Police. I wonder if the government will have more support for that family

I guess for the same reason you would want your donation tracked to insure the money goes to the correct person

To demonstrate he is not involved in money laundering

Pornthep, who has been stripped of his rank and dismissed from the police force, 

Is this why he was dismissed, to avoid the RTP paying out to the family. what?
