Soldiers accused of beating Yutthaginan Boonniam to death offer an apology to his mother Wednesday at the prison inside a military base in Surat Thani province.

 

SURAT THANI — Eight soldiers who stand accused of beating a young army recruit to death on Saturday were brought to prostrate in front of his mother in apology Wednesday.

 

Eight perpetrators behind the fatal abuse of Yutthaginan Boonniam, 22, who had been detained for unspecified reasons at a military prison in Surat Thani, were brought on Wednesday to prostrate before his mother.

Yutthaginan’s death was pushed to justice by pressure from social media after one of his relatives posted the story online. The incident occurred at a time marking the beginning of the annual military draft, which will place up to 103,000 men into a two-year mandatory service.

 

I wonder what would have happened if the story never made it to FaceBook?

The only answer is a level of managerial sloppiness that is almost impossible to comprehend, or they just do not care about safety, humane life at all.

They murder someone and they have to be made to apologize?

Oh, that's okay then...but the poor dead soldier will still be dead. Great Caesar's Ghost, what kind of infantile, futile, moronic ...minds they do have.

The poor mother must have had the restraint of a saint.  I'd have at least given them all a kick in the head as they were prostrating themselves.  Bar stewards.

In most countries things like this are handled by military police and military courts.

I wonder why this is not so in Thailand.

Also, why is it that everybody seems to ignore the fact it all happened in a military prison.

Which in fact is not a kind-hearted place to be, and means all there have done something wrong before.

Does not take away the fact the boy's death was unnecessary.

And ultimately the camp's commanding officer has to shoulder the blame.

In Thailand, is an apology considered an admission of guilt?
