Top brass police gather in Hua Hin as final suspect apologises for brutal attack

HUA HIN:-- Top brass police gathered in Hua Hin Friday to confirm that all suspects in the assault of three British tourists have now been rounded up and charged.

Commander Wuthi Liptapallop joined with other senior officers in assuring the public that everything would be done to try and ensure the safety of tourists in the wake of the shocking attacks that caused uproar throughout the world.

Wuthi met with the fourth person arrested, twenty year old Chaiya (or Boy) Jaibun who said that the four suspects had begun drinking in the evening and by the time of the attacks, which they have all admitted, they had consumed 16 bottles between them.

He told Wuthi that it happened because they were drunk. One of the tourists had bumped into one of the suspects and the situation escalated from there. He apologised giving a 'wai'.

Wuthi said that this was an important case as it involved tourists and police had worked hard to resolve the matter quickly and efficiently. Following a news conference in which tourist organisations and business leaders presented floral tributes to thank the police for their work on the case, Wuthi went to visit the site of the April 13th attack in Soi Bintabaht, central Hua Hin.

It emerged that the CCTV that helped the case reach an international audience had been fitted in Hua Hin some three months ago. Some 60 HD cameras had been deployed in 22 locations and those in Soi Bintabaht were instrumental in being able to clearly define the faces of the attackers even though it was nighttime.

One news site, Voice, reported that the four suspects would face charges of dangerous assault causing serious injury, that can result in a maximum ten year sentence.

Police said that Lewis John Owen the 43 year old son had returned to the UK though British newspapers said he went to Singapore where he works. The parents, 68 year old Lewis Owen and his wife Rosemary, also in her sixties, are now out of hospital and are staying in a Hua Hin hotel and will go back to the UK (and their home in Wales) on May 3rd.

Nothing 20 lashes would make think about what they done. Anyone I know that would punch a 68 year lady would be publicly flogged or maybe just beat to death.

Harming Thailand's image and jeopardizing tourism holds more weight than the bodily harm to the victims.

Nothing a little round up of the perpetrators and a few sorries won't resolve,,in the minds of Thai Officialdom.

I wonder if the rest of the civilized world not under the control and threats of a uniformed group with all of the guns will agree Thailand is still a great place to risk coming.

To make things really right, those unfortunate tourists, should be invited back by TAT and give a right

royal treatment of no less that 5 starts all the way, coupled with a hefty compensation for the sufferings,

and suffered they did, and those thugs should be brought to prostate, grovels and beg forgiveness the

Thai way, for the whole world to see, and than maybe, just maybe, this case can be

put aside.... ( until the next one ).....

"Commander Wuthi Liptapallop joined with other senior officers in assuring the public that everything would be done to try and ensure the safety of tourists in the wake of the shocking attacks that caused uproar throughout the world."

this is such a god damned lie. i was in Soi Bintabaht the night this happened. there were no police anywhere.

funny, for some reason this story does not mention the attacks took place about 150 yards from the police station.

there were drunk Thai kids SITTING IN FRONT OF THE POLICE STATION.

Soi Bintabaht was packed with people, you could hardly move, there were many times people were panicking to get off the streets as people began pushing and shoving.

"Wuthi said that this was an important case as it involved tourists and police had worked hard to resolve the matter quickly and efficiently. Following a news conference in which tourist organisations and business leaders presented floral tributes to thank the police for their work on the case, Wuthi went to visit the site of the April 13th attack in Soi Bintabaht, central Hua Hin."

What work? siting on your ass a block away while someone gets beaten?

but everything is OK now, here are some flowers.

My Thai friends really believe this.

They said to me last night "These guys were on tv, gave a Wai and apologised, saying they were drunk. All is ok now"

I asked if they really meant that. They replied yes of course. Thais accept their apology.

I really can't believe Thai mentality.

It was an important case because it involved tourists !

Shouldn't that read tourist money ?

Remember Erawan.

I've been part of Songkran in Pattaya a few times. Only police I've ever seen was the one token cop there allowing himself to be a target for water. Walk down the other streets, none.

A few years ago, we had to make a hasty retreat on second road as we were headed home, walking. A fight broke out, bottles where being thrown. Absolute mayhem.

On the drive home, it was like a war zone. Scooters going back and forth across Sukhumvit. No helmets. No lights. Speeding. Drunk. And NO police.

What do you expect??? Pure mayhem.

There; all done and dusted.

1. Photo shots of important top brass police

2. Pathetic and insincere apology by cowardly youth

3. Bail payments received from rich parents of other cowardly attackers

4. Flowers at the hospital bedside of aged victim

Safe for tourists to return now.

Your level of optimism, supported by your defeatist signature, I feel is misplaced.

I think the Thai guys will get disproportionately hammered, in a vain attempt to restore confidence.

This little boy, Khun Drop Kick, should have the book thrown at him, for sticking his jamook into events that didn't concern him. But I think the first 2 guys should not be charged, unless the farang are jointly charged for their initial assaults.

What a disgrace. I feel ashamed, and I'm not Thai, and I don't even live in Thailand. I am ashamed that people can be allowed to get away with this.
