Two confess to killing Turkish tourist in Samui
THE NATION

KOH SAMUI: -- A SECURITY guard and the manager of a bar in Koh Samui confessed on Friday to conspiring to shoot dead a Turkish tourist, police said yesterday.

Kabin Srisa-ard, 27, the guard, and Kanapong Nakwatchara, 56, the manager of the pub on Chaweng Beach, confessed after several hours of police interrogation that on Friday they conspired to shoot Polot Mehmet, 37, with a .38-calibre pistol that was found in Mehmet's hand. Police said they confessed that one of the guns used in the crime belonged to Kabin and the other belonged to Kanapong.

After shooting Mehmet, they put Kabin's gun in the victim's hand.

When they realised a security camera had captured the crime, they repositioned the camera but failed to see that the incident was captured by several other cameras.

Police said the men told them the Turkish tourist often came to the bar, got drunk, intimidated the bar's staff and created a scene.

On Friday, they said, Mehmet got drunk and forced staff to keep the bar open. The staff pleaded with him to leave but he walked to the counter with a clearly visible pistol tucked inside his belt. Kanapong shot him in the abdomen with his own gun and then Kabin shot him in the head with his gun. Kabin and Kanapong then tried to cover up the crime to confuse the police. Police yesterday brought both men to the bar to re-enact the crime before detaining them at the Provincial Court.

Who walks into a bar ( forang ) tooled up with a pistol If you ask me this Turk was a menace and probably played with fire and got burnt I am sorry but more to this story than what is written and it

At this point, well done by the RTP. But ThaiVisa needs someone to create and manage a new forum: "Whatever Happened To …?" There are so many stories that have disappeared, that readers are interest

Makes all the members that said the police were complicit in a cover up look stupid. Good work by the RTP.

Good work by the RTP.

Did not the RTP initially and immediately rule this a suicide? Complicity or or extreme stupidity, hardly any room for praise to the RTP.

I am sorry but more to this story than what is written and it ain't murder

If someone specially a foreigner was to come into my place of business and start trouble and i could see he was tooled up then should I let him bully and intimidate me in my own bar ( if I was thai ) in my own country

Some people just read a comment without a clue

Don't just shoot people out in the open without some sort of argument

I reckon if he wasn't carrying a gun he would will be here today
