  1. Koh Tao Case , Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Htun

    A further extension has been granted to the Prosecution until 23 January 2018 to file a "rebuttal" to the Appeal. They have had at least 4 extensions since the Appeal was filed by the Defence on 22 August 2017. As far as I know, each side is legally allowed up to 5 extensions, which means the Prosecution could apply for a further extension until February 2018. The Defence had used theirs up when they filed the Appeal back in August. Once the Prosecution is finished with its delaying tactics, the Appeal (and its rebuttal) will be submitted to the Supreme Court of Thailand for its consideration. The final Appeal process then starts and could take months, or even years, before a verdict is reached by the Supreme Court.
  2. The story gets stranger and stranger. Check out the facebook page of Donna Spensley (Ink Butcher) who set up the GoFundMe account. They are claiming the CCTV footage is fake, i.e. filmed at their own hotel rather than where the incident is supposed to have occurred! It is really bizarre.
  3. For the record, the original source is the Myanmar Times, published 22 September 2017. https://www.mmtimes.com/news/two-myanmar-migrants-make-final-appeal-koh-tao-murder-case.html Two Myanmar migrants make final appeal in Koh Tao murder case “We have submitted throughout this whole process that the evidence does not support the death sentence and the two Myanmar men are innocent,” U Aung Myo Thant said on Monday.
  4. Yes indeed, thanks to the antics of one particular poster. Oh, and where's Greenchair?
  5. His Wikipedia entry gives one of his occupations as "social activist". It explains a lot.
  6. I wouldn't trust the origins of his so-called rock star memorabilia (some of which he is touting for sale on his facebook page). Some of it has been acquired by dubious means by all accounts. Pete Townsend and Yoko Ono can testify to that.
  7. He has this to say about fellow expats: "The lower class English ex-pats all want to beat me up for being rude - seems a rather odd overreaction but they are uneducated tattooed yobs as the world knows." Ouch.
  8. The irony is that Mr. G's boorish behaviour puts him in the same class as Donald Trump, a man he claims to despise! Perhaps there is some truth in the claim Giuliano is now making that he created this whole scenario as a joke by behaving like a loud-mouthed ugly American, just like his nemesis.
  9. 9 million US$ which he allegedly made from the sale of his "kiss and tell" - sorry, rock star biography books? He now freely admits that he has spent it all.
  10. Surprise, surprise, Deckchair finally got the other thread closed. I'd like to thank iReason for his monumental effort in reminding all of us what this case is really about - the framing of two scapegoats by the Thai authorities for crimes they didn't commit, which was aided and abetted by Britain's National Crime Agency.
  11. No, not of the rape and murders but there is a possibility that he witnessed the crime and that's how he came by the phone. I don't believe Zaw Lin was even there when it happened.
