Dear Media around the world.
Please ask Mr. Somyod the following Questions:
1. Why did he pick a “Rohingya” muslims translator for Rakhine suspects?

2. Why did the police pick a Roti Street Vendor as an official translator translator? Was he trying to save some Thai tax payers’ money?

Liar Liar จับโกหกนมสดได้อีกเเล้ว
นมสดต้องเข้าเรียนวิชา Accounting and Financial Management ทุกวันจันทร์ เวลา 8:40-11:00 เเละ 12:40-13:50
เเต่ทำไมนมสดเดินออกจาก หอพักพลอมร วันจันทร์ เวลา 9:16:40 ทำไมไม่ไปเรียน? ในบอกว่ามีสอบไง
Nomsod’s class started at 8:40am. How come Nomsom left his dormitory at 9:16am? No backpack and no books? This guy must have a Photographic Memory but his GPA is 2.01.


Nomsod’s lawyer said this picture was taken at Bangkok University. However, this picture was captured from Pon Amon Dormitory next to Bangkok University. Therefore, we must request an original file from the owner of this apartment.


Expressing deep concern at this stage with the ongoing public announcements by individuals gaining access to the accused on guilty or innocent status of 2 Koh Tao murder case accused migrants. Voluntary and consensual confidential Thai lawyer and Myanmar accused client relationship now crucial to ensuring the accused can access a fair trial in this publicly debated case. In most normal cases (of which now this clearly is not), trained criminal lawyers would now surely be advising their clients to stay silent. Public suspicion will go on but lawyers need space to work. Guilt/innocence in Koh Tao case will crucially be decided eventually by the courts based on all facts and testimony presented to them and not by police, prosecutors or the general public. Capable and skilled lawyers must now crucially be given time and space to focus on confidential case defense preparation with the accused, having competent and reliable translation assistance at all times, if the accused are to be assured a fair trial. The accused must crucially be supported to make consensual and informed decisions about their lawyers, defence strategy and the nature of public statements made on their case as much as is possible.


Khunying Pornthip said : This case lack of reliability from people because there were no simulation and the police didn’t act right according to the forensic process. The forensic process needs 3 sections, 1st section is officers who responsible for questioning,and making report about the case, 2nd section is officers who collect witnesses and evidences,3rd section is the officers who examine witnesses and evidences. So this murder of 2 Britons on Koh Tao needed to have knowledge and used forensic experts only. READ ALL

Pol Gen Jakthip Chichinda, deputy commissioner of the Royal Thai Police who was just appointed to head the investigation team, said one construction worker has confessed to the murder of the British tourists, David Miller and Ms Hannahb Witheridge, 23. 15781_785174798171886_11028230926112062_n But he said the police have yet to send DNA samples from the three Myanmar suspects for testing in Bangkok which will take a few days to confirm if their DNA samples match the DNA collected from the body of the tourist, Ms Hannah. Pol Gen Jakthip did not elaborate if the two others have confessed or have connection on which part of the crime. But earlier the police team found them appearing in surveillance cameras near the scene and almost at the time when the murder took place.

BURMESE CATCHED SURAT THANI, Sept 26 — After 12 days of investigation of the murders of two British tourists on a small island in southern Thailand, police on Friday continued collecting evidence related to the murders and simultaneously increased the reward to Bt700,000 baht to any person who could provide any clue leading to the arrest of the murderers. Meanwhile, soldiers from the Vibhavadi Rangsit Army Camp are scheduled to help regulate migrant workers on Ko Tao, the island in the Gulf of Thailand and off the coast of the southern province of Surat Thani, where the bodies of the two British tourists were found on the beach early on September 15. The two victims were identified as David William Miller, 24, and Hannah Victoria Witheridge, 23. Pol Maj Gen Suwat Chaengyodsuk, commander of Metropolitan Police Bureau heading the police investigation, joined with Region 8 Provincial Police to collect more evidence in a bid to resolve the case by collecting DNA from suspicious Thais and migrant workers on the island. There are more than 4,000 migrant workers, mostly from Myanmar, staying on the island but officials said more than 1,000 have not yet registered with the authorities. Some violated the order and left Ko Tao last night. Because of the loose regulation, soldiers from Vibhavadi Rangsit Army Camp would assist in setting regulations for the migrant workers staying on the island. Police also suspect migrant workers as being involved in the murders.

Both gave good cooperation to the police and they denied they had any connection. DNA samples of the two brothers were collecting for testing and were later proved to not match with DNA collected from the scene and the victim’s body. Both were later freed.

He said that he felt uncomfortable that his remark caused a misunderstanding, adding that he didn’t mean to offend anybody and had no intention whatsoever to insult anybody. The prime minister made the remark apparently referring to the murder of two British tourists, one them a female, on Koh Tao in Surat Thani on Sunday. Like any country in this world, he said that Thailand has bad people and, therefore, foreign tourists should be aware that there are some places which are unsafe and should be avoided. Nevertheless, he assured that, in general, Thailand is a safe place. prayuth Family of Hannah Witheridge have travelled to Bangkok Credit: RTV stream_img Laboratory tests of the DNA found at the crime scene where two British tourists were battered to death on Koh Tao on Sunday do not match with the DNA of the suspects held in police custody, including a British national, according to well-informed sources from the National Police Office. Evidences collected from the crime scene that were sent for tests of DNA include three cigarette butts found about 50 metres from where the two British tourists were killed. One cigarette has lipstick mark. DNA of two people were found in the second cigarette and the DNA of a third person was found in the third cigarette butt. However, the tests show that the DNA found in one cigarette butt match with the DNA found in the semen, said the sources. The sources added that since none of the Myanmar and British suspects had the same DNA with the DNA found in the evidences, police would have to continue their hunt for the real killers who are still at large. 10641153_811186402265487_3620272468103371153_n   Press Releases : Message of condolences from Deputy Prime Minister/Minister of Foreign Affairs on the death of two British nationals on Koh Tao Regarding the deaths of two British nationals on 15 September 2014, H.E.
