BANGKOK: -- Forty eight year old Kamon Phaekhiaw was given the hefty sentence after the children aged 7 and 11 pointed to him. He was convicted of robbing a house in Sri Prajan district of Suphanburi.

 

But he always protested his complete innocence.

 

He has already served four years in Ratchaburi's Klang Khao Bin jail. But recently two convicts arrived and seeing Kamon depressed they asked him what was wrong.

 

He told the new arrivals about how he had been jailed for something he had not done and the two new inmates realized that they were responsible for the crime themselves. They had managed to get away scot free but had since been jailed on another matter.

 

The two inmates felt sorry for Kamon and decided to write to the Justice Ministry to own up, Kapook.com said citing a story that has appeared on Channel 3 television.

 

The Department of Special Investigations (DSI) and the Justice Ministry sent a team of investigators to interview the two inmates and found their testimony was consistent with details of the crime.

 

Though investigations are ongoing kapok reported there is a good chance that the caretaker was wrongly accused and will be freed now that the case has been reopened.

 

Neither the nationality nor identity of the foreigner who was the victim of the original robbery was mentioned in the online report.

As pointed out by numerous posters yesterday, some sentences here are quite bizarre.

While all possibly true, it strikes me that the two new inmates their testimony was consistent with details of the crime could have come from them being debriefed by the one guy!

On the other hand, one would hope (sic) that good investigators would know techniques to crack any collusion. I'm guessing this be part of the techniques used as part of most interviews.

21 Years for robbing a house is insane.

 

Seems the Justice System here is just a system.  Got to feel so sorry for this guy if its all true.

How can the testimony of two minors be upheld as enough evidence to jail someone for 21 years ?......and 21 years for burglary?...........Obviously no money, and no contacts.

Yes, I thought that too

I would own up to a few things if the price was right, or the threat real enough

Then again, maybe we've been here too long

In the States one will get life if convicted for the third time, even for stealing a chocolate bar in a store, because then one is a recidivist and can not be reeducated.
