Scary. Your own country deports you to a third world country.

I would say thats not true, I thinking ts gone a bit to far to be able to bribe anybody and expect to get a light sentence, this being the first time a English guy has been extradited to Thailand I would think that he will be made a example of and look at over 10

Don't just think in terms of.a reduced sentence: a difference can be made in one's living conditions inside the prison, with enough money spent in the right way.

The guy is a habitual thug - check his past. Like his nick name and the MO of Pitbulls, he can snap anytime and be a repeat offender. Hopefully the punishment will fit the crime - lifer for a life taken. It may not be pre-meditated but the nature of the 'kill' was horrendous. He needs shackles as well.

Your own country applies international justice when an offence is committed in another country, then the felon should be extradited to face the charges presented. Conversely, his/her own country has a duty of care to ensure that the rights enjoyed by a citizen of his/her country should be maintained whilst under the protection of another country. A lot of this is contained within UN charters, and therein lies a lot of the delaying circumstances, to ensure that these regulations are not being breached.

The basis of these laws is in essence to protect the innocent, and ensure a documented trial that can withstand scrutiny. Is there seriously anybody who disagrees with this criteria?

Welcome back Lee.

Hope you brought your soap-on-a-rope, not something you want to be dropping anymore. rolleyes.gif

So inappropriate.

It is not the right of anyone in gaol to mete out punishment. This is the right of the courts only. In any country. Gaol should simply be a deprivation of liberty. To allow systematic abuse simply lets loose a very damaged person onto the community at large once they are released.

Finally, the international justice system working the way it should. This might, just might, make some of these rouge travelers think before they act whilst abroad.

No, they didn't deport him. They extradited him. If you don't know the differences between them, look it up -- but here's one of them: you are extradited when your government agrees there's a credible criminal charge against you/you should stand trial for something (serious) you are accused of.

Your characterization is dumb and deliberately dishonest.

It's disheartening to see how many wish to use this tragedy as an opportunity to make vacuous comments, and "jokes".

A life has been lost forever, and another for the time being. I'm pleased that this guy is facing justice, but some of the comments here seem to be written by the kind of mob who used to turn up at public executions to jeer at the condemned. Tasteless.

Given Thai jail sentences for Westerners who murder other Westerners here (3 years and under), he'll probably spend less time in prison this way.

You reckon? It isn't a chance I would want to take to be honest. Manslaughter in the UK, may get 7 and do 3.

I read a post on another forum yesterday with links to two Westerners who were convicted (or plead guilty) of murdering another Westerner in Thailand. Their total sentences were 3 1/2 years for one, and I think the other was 2 1/2 years but he was deported after serving 2 years.

I haven't seen any other Thai sentences where a Westerner is convicted and sentenced for murdering another Westerner, but if somebody finds one please post it up. :)

IIRC from reports Lee Aldhouse had about 5 million baht transferred into his Thai bank account just afterwards.

I'm sure I don't need to comment on what that might be arranged to be used for.

It would only need to be inline with others to be light. He's going down tho and he knows it.

Cash talks on the inside. With That sort of spending money he'll be looking at a pool villa with a beach view.
