Life in a Bangkok dungeon: The Paul Hayward story

Recommended Posts

I remember this ; he used to play for Newtown Rugby League first grade,

of course he was only a carrier , one must remember who visited him in Thailand countless times AND paid for his kids private school fees, no other than advertising man John Singleton what a great guy to do that,and famous Radio host John Laws ,what a great bunch of guys along with Gerry Harvey of then Norman Ross furniture chain.

 

I always admired these 3 guys for “helping” out Hayward and Warren Fellows , of course dont forget Bill Sinclair who paid his Bail to leave prison, he was suppossed to come back to Thailand for a trial but never did and they obviously knew that !!!

i imagine he would be dead by now he was about 65 then so we are going back to 1978/79

 

I heard Warren Fellows lives still in Sydney 

 

As for the nice guys Singo,Laws and Co they are still helping out people i guess or has that moved to other shock jocks?

Where did you find this movie?  I searched Netflix, couldn't find it... (sounds like a good movie)

It was a very good movie. I watch all my movies and TV shows on a streaming site called Popcorn Time for free. It's got everything.

Read the book. 

Hayward was set up by his brother in law Needy Smith. Needy is still in goal with Parkinson', Paul Hayward died of an overdose back in Australia. 

Also have a read of Wikipedia; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warren_Fellows.

 

I read the book in 2 days. It was a sad read about stupidity. The book is an account where you go, when caught in a foreign country. It doesn't glorify the trade in Heroin, but tells what it is like doing time.

Drug dealing scum like this shouldn't be allowed to profit from their punishment. Don't buy the book!

Yes Singo & john  Laws were great guys back then helping the working class lads out .

 

 

Hayward just couldnt cope mentally when he came back and even hid food apparently .

 

of course Thai jails have changed since the 70’s and 80’s and last time I went to visit someone i noticed the prison officers were younger and looked more professional in their uniforms,mind you it wasnt the notorious Bang Kwang  maximum i went to.

Maybe was “set up” by his brother in law the infamous Neddy Smith , but......question is , ...who were the Mr Bigs behind it ?

 

Doubt Smith had the brains nor the funds to carry out ,he was probaly just a go between.

 

The 70’s and 80’s and certain extent of the  90’s was rife with mass corruption and criminality in Sydney Australia from Judges to Politicians to very high ranking Police.

 

Can you imagine the corruption on the Waterfront back then with ships coming in loaded up wih smack .

I cannot imagine how horrible it would be to be banged up in Thailand or in Laos, or anywhere in SE Asia. I watched a movie yesterday "A Prayer Before Dawn" about a Brit boxer who got banged up in Thailand for drugs and boxed his way out of prison. It was a brutal movie to watch and knowing it was true and allegedly fairly spot on made it worse.

 

Why would anyone get involved with drugs here? It is the definition of insanity.

and apparently has boxed his way back into UK prison.  That guy's English is so bad; it needed subtitles.
