Business as usual on Koh Tao - no mafia here just a beautiful island!

Picture: Sanook

 

Sanook reported on an INN story on Koh Tao in the wake of claims by a British teen that she was drugged and raped there in June.

 

INN said that droves of tourists were still arriving on the controversial island.

 

None that they spoke to were aware of the controversy.

 

The tourists said they came came to Koh Tao because they heard it was a beautiful place.

 

INN reported this without naming names or saying how many tourists they spoke to, notes Thaivisa.

 

INN added that they spoke to a driver who transports tourists on Koh Tao. 

 

This person said: "There is no mafia or people of influence here.

 

"I don't know if the (rape) claim is true or not but they should investigate.

 

"As far as I am concerned I have every confidence in the police here".

 

The driver was also not named in the report that gave no further details.

Maybe the ones who have lost their lives on this island said the same thing.

It's like any place you can visit they all have risks just don't put yourself at risk and maybe you will have great memories.

"As far as I am concerned I have every confidence in the police here". 

And if he (or any other island resident) were to publicly say to the contrary (that both of these statements are bullshit)?

Potential loss of business, intimidation, maybe disappears, sleeps with the fishes, etc.

I have a pair of breeding mules for sale.  What puzzles me is that the only inquiries I've had are from back packers planning a holiday on Koh tao Island
