16.November 2011

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a Thai veteran security official told SHAN yesterday, according to intelligence reports, there were 17 Chinese crewmen on the 2 Chinese cargo ships when they started from China. 5 of them had taken refuge in the Wa-controlled territory following the killing of 13 others on 5 October, he said. The 9 officers, who were later arrested, had unwittingly acted on the reports, not knowing in advance about the killing. Mae Sai News in the meantime, quoting deputy police chief Phanuphong Singhara Na Ayuddhya, reported evidence on close circuit TV on the ships is conclusive that the soldiers in fact are the guilty party. (SHAN)
