Unbelievable, a new low for the Thai 'justice' system, can't get wore than this.

Take a look at the geriatric red shirt war. They will be tried and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Why? Because they decided to challenge the junta. There will be no delays like the above case jack boot justice will be swift. That is the two tiered justice system here.

It does not matter as long as it's not in Thai script.

Thai authorities don't read English websites.

 

Well, the Thai government managed to figure out via online news from the West that Bill Gates had needled them re the country's spaghetti wire cabling tangle, and they ended up announcing a supposed big plan to underground the utilities in BKK as a result.

 

Likewise, they seemed to get the message when the Western media widely covered the PM's ill-advised remarks about how female tourists dressing in bikinis potentially invited them being assaulted. And that led to a kind of public apology, if memory serves.

 

So, I wouldn't rule out the possibility that sufficient and prominent non-Thai news media coverage of this sorry case might manage to produce some movement -- just as ultimately did the Associated Press and Reuters' reporting on the human trafficking/fishing industry abuses/migrant slave camps.

foreign embassies tend to stay out of things like this and i dont know why. i can imagine it would be difficult dealing with thai authorities and maybe they just dont bother any more after trying before without getting results.

 

Foreign governments do nothing because, in an age when the "wrong sort of people" get to travel, the "right sort of people", who run governments and economies the world over, don't really care as much about them as they do about diplomacy, defence and trade arrangements.

 

In the 19th century when, by and large, only the "right sort of people" got to travel, Imperial Germany would have sent a gunboat to bombard wherever the "outrage" had occurred, until the culprits were punished with the utmost severity.

 

Two disastrous world wars (and subsequent colonial wars) put an end to the ability of European Powers to act in such a way.  A lot of people in Europe haven't really caught on to that yet.

Police are all murderers here. They all play a part, one way or the other.

 

I'm thinking it would take about 300,000 troops to invade Thailand and replace the police and military.

 

then a five year period of executing anyone found guilty of corruption. 

 

Then 20 years of completely new schools replacing all the teachers, teaching English, math, logic, engineering, computer science.

 

and of course driving schools, new building and electrical codes...

 

 

 

 

I would think 500 troups woud be sufficient to have the generals running back to hide behind the barrack walls, waving the white flag to negotiate keeping their status and offering the remaining Thai population to be used at will as slaves.

 

Sounds similar?

The article written by the Samui times should be sent direct to Kobfart the tourism minister and to General clueless asking for a public response explaining why a tourist is murdered yet the known guilty parties are not brought to justice?

 

Perhaps Pokémon arrangements are of far more importance!

 

They issue daily garbage statements about the development of tourism and the safety of visitors to the Kingdom but allow this insanity to continue! Just bewildering!

There's Thai law.

 

And then there's Thai island law.

 

Nothing new here. Move along please.

I'm sure you are only joking and, no offense, but you sound like Dick Cheney and all the other delusional "nation builders." We have plenty of examples of how that's working out.

That would give you the Thailand you want to live in but it is their country and they like it just the way it is, corruption and all.  

Ex-pats choose to live in Thailand and many accept that they are in a pretty lawless, corrupt and dangerous country.  Why should Thailand alter to suit the western lifestyle and their morality.  One more time "embrace it or leave because you will never change it"

 

I feel just like you do. But I feel really bad for this mans family.

I was just offering my vision of "the way forward". :)

 

I love Thailand just the way it is. That is why I am here. One of the most "free" places on Earth. Murdering scum and all.

 

I accept responsibly for my decision to live in Thailand. It is dangerous here. I ride a 650 motorcycle on the highways everyday. We all know how crazy dangerous the way Thais drive.

 

I like to joke we live in a country that is not properly electrically grounded. :) Except it is not a joke. Where is the fire exit, anyway?  

 

I keep things simple here and try to use common sense to avoid the obvious problems. Like getting your throat cut by the Mafia motorbike taxi driver who is really the boyfriend of the bar girl he just dropped of at your house.  

 

OK time for my Sunday afternoon Mad Max motorcycle ride.

Why doesn't someone from the German embassy go and ask the police why the murderers are not convicted if any crimes? 

 

Do they not care?

Thailand did some (bureaucratical) favors to the German embassy where Thailand would not need to.

 

Of course in return the German embassy can not dig to deep or even demand progress in a "cold" case... 

Examples please.

The killers are walking free, like in koh tao case. We farang are just seen as low life in this country. He will never get justice here.

They can kill, rape, assault, once again  mai pen rai.

Now start to think about all the suicide cases, that we read on a daily basis. Do you really believe all these foreigners committed suicide. OR maybe just the police dont bother to investigate when the victim is a farang...:bah:
