life is good now says the General we all smile again Mr General life is cheap in Thailand and over the last few years the smile has replaced by scammers and murders so what are you on yourself that makes you think like this? it is not prozac that is for sure.

 

£60+ to murder someone says a lot about the police in Thailand too, but his name is joke, yes one big bad one for RTP what are you? just a bunch of thugs who are also cowards.

BANGKOK: -- Metropolitan police are still on the hunt for three other accomplices wanted for the murder and bury of 28-year old woman, Ms Supaksorn Ponthaisong, in Kanchanaburi province while they will send two prime suspects to the court this afternoon for extension of their detention.

 

Police said seven persons were involved in the murder, and four have been arrested, one of them the police chief of Ban Pong district of Ratchaburi province, Pol Col Amnuay Pongsawat.

 

But the officer denied any connection in the murder, although admitted of knowing her casually.

 

Metropolitan Police Bureau commissioner Pol Lt Gen Sanit Mahathavorn arrived at Nong Khan Plu police station in Kanchanaburi this morning to question a third suspect, Ms Kannica Krumram.

 

He said Pol Col Amnuay, and another suspect would be escorted to Talingchan Criminal Court in Bangkok this afternoon for court’s permission to extend their detention.

 

He said the police would also oppose bail for the suspects.

 

Among the three fugitives wanted for the case are soldiers, he added.

I knew life was cheap here. But 3000 baht for offing somebody is outrageous, tragic, and frankly scary.

I am going to hedge my bets that the cop who orchestrated the whole thing gets bail and flees while these less well connected / well heeled accomplices will get the full weight of the law.

Disgusting

I read an interesting article in BP some years back on hit men/women, you could get a hit done up north for Bt 500, this guy was robbed. :ninja:

Actually I believe the minimum wage is 300 per day × 20 for a 5 day week = 6,000 but if he is making her work more then he is abusing her.

We are being told that, in another high-profile murder case currently being reported on (https://is.gd/4fI4IK), that the prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

 

Surely, a premeditated hit such as this one, allegedly ordered by a police superintendent, deserves a similar punishment for the orchestrator ???

I find it amazing the number of suspected criminals who voluntarily turn themselves in to the RTP, and who respond to "invitations" to present themselves for arrest and/or interrogation. Where I come from, Mr. Plod comes and takes you away, voluntarily or otherwise! 

 

If I were a murderer, or accessory, I would be running as fast as I could, hiding, or changing my identity.

 

Equally amazing is the response to the odd one who fails to appear ... Whole regiments of police and army cannot prevail...........

 

BTW I have a criminal record, for parking on a double yellow line in the UK - arrested, taken to the cop shop, cooled heels for a couple of hours, then interviewed, charged and prosecuted! Pled guilty by letter, fined £5, no points on the licence but saddled with the criminal record, now purged. All very friendly.  A friend, sadly now deceased, had one for riding a bicycle on a pedestrian footbridge. Both are considered criminal offenses in the UK, not traffic offenses! But maybe they just wanted tea money.......

 

Here it seems murder and manslaughter are lesser offenses than riding a motorbike without a helmet! All to do with the cashflow, I suppose.
