British builder, 59, killed in Thailand after biker attack

A British builder who was working in Thailand has died after he was attacked by a group of bikers. Peter Chambers, 59, became involved in a dispute with the group of motorcyclists as he was driving to his home in Chonburi, Thailand. When he got out of his car to confront the men he was savagely attacked.

Mr Chambers, who moved from his home in Basildon, Essex to Thailand, was so badly beaten he fell into a coma and died in hospital two weeks later - the day before his 60th birthday. Thai police are treating his killing as 'death by assault' but have so far not a made any arrests.

Builder, 59, was beaten to death by motorbike gang in Thailand

A FAMILY has paid tribute to a man murdered in Thailand by a gang of yobs. Peter Chambers was savagely attacked by the gang, who were on motorbikes, just yards from his home in Chonburi. The 59-year-old from Basildon, who had been living in the country and working as a builder, had been travelling to his home when he got into a dispute with the thugs.

He got out of his car to confront them, but was attacked. Mr Chambers was badly beaten and was taken to hospital where he remained in a coma for two-weeks. He died two weeks later, the day before his 60th birthday.

His family in south Essex have been left devastated and are still waiting for answers about the death.

Can anyone name a single western murder where the perp was arrested, tried, convicted and incarcerated for a suitable period of time?

Anyone?

Why not manslaughter? Don't tell me, "death by assault" is a lesser crime applicable to the death of farangs.

As for the "so far not made any arrests", that is no surprise at all and if his family are waiting for answers, I am sorry but they will have a long wait.

RIP, another sad victim of the mob mentality that is creeping around all corners of the globe.

Just off the top of my head.

Anything else we can help you with, anti-bitterness pills perhaps?

No.

There is no 'manslaughter' (as it is known in the West) charge in the Thai judicial system.

huh? They don't catch the people who commit crimes against farang?

I'd have thought that they'd have some mega pressure from the government or international embassies etc to actually do their job.

Or that in general, people wouldn't want to touch farang, the same as they wouldn't touch someone who's hi-so, since they'd know that if you screw with someone who's rich, the cops will actually do their job.

How about this; It was a confrontation between a motorcycle gang and a fellow that pissed them off? What do you think happens if you try to pass the Hells Angels or Satans Choice when they are blocking a road driving illegally two abreast? Not every crime is motivated because someone is a foreigner. Sometimes the victims are just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Sorry did not read the story but it sounds like it was a Thai bike gang.

I now live part of each week in Ptya and have noticed lately that there are a lot of falang bikers with colors wandering around - something that was prevalent 10 years ago but that seemed to fade but is not making a comeback??? Is it just me suddenly noticing them or do others find that to be the case?

note to myself: drive off or drive them over, but don't stop. Risky and waste of time.

Those aren't colours. They are fancy dress for retired Dentists and Lawyers playing at Bikers...
