CRIME ON KHAO SAN ROAD

Brother of Lop Buri candidate gunned down in Bangkok

A brother of a Bhum Jai Thai Party candidate for Lop Buri was gunned down in a broad day light in Chanasongkram district on Wednesday. Police believed the attack was politically motivated.

Subhan Jirapanwanich, 53, a chairman of Tambon Administration Organisation in Lop Buri was rushed to nearby Washirapayabaran Hospital, but he was later pronounced dead.

Police were alerted at about 2.45pm about the attack which took place near Lottery Bureau of Thailand on Khao Sarn road.

The victim's wife and secretary were also wounded.

His sister; Malikha, was competing for a parliamentary seat in Lop Buri under the banner of Bhum Jai Thai Party.

Some reports stated that Subhan had told some reporters that he was followed and could possibly be a target of assassination by local politicians.

In an orbit, would be the safest place for 2 months. If you can't beat them kill them, come to think of it did something happen like this a few years ago on a massive scale???:whistling:

Not good, considering that Lop Buri is the biggest military city in Thailand. A lot of these Politicians have high ranking officers whom are relatives in the military there. These guys that killed him and wounded the others would want to hope there are no relations in the military. me thinks the :hit-the-fan:

Except Chuan Leek Pai, No rally campaign in Lampang, he visited the local markets, spoke to everyone, listened to everyone (PTP voters included), No visible security protection. My wife told me that a Thaksin addicted family before will vote for Chuan Leek Pai.

2.45pm on the Khao Saan Road?

Folks probably just thought it was part of the street theatre, given the weird s**t that goes on down there every day.

PRE-ELECTION VIOLENCE

Vote canvasser shot dead on Khao San Road

By The Nation

Bhum Jai Thai worker from Lop Buri slain by lone gunman; wife also injured

Increasing political violence in the run-up to the July 3 poll has seen another death - with a key canvasser working for the Bhum Jai Thai Party shot dead in Bangkok yesterday in broad daylight. Two women, including his wife, were wounded in the shooting.

Chana Songkhram police are looking for the lone gunman, who sprayed five shots at Suban Jiraphanwanich, his wife Oraphin and aide Chanutphorn Phothisamphan, after approaching them in the busy Khao San Road tourist area.

Three bullets hit Suban, chairman of the Lop Buri Provincial Administrative Organisation, in the head. The remaining two hit the women, wounding them slightly.

The gunman was seen fleeing on a waiting motorcycle. He is about 170 centimetres tall, and was unmasked but wearing a blue shirt with long sleeves and a pair of blue jeans. The getaway rider wore a black jacket, black slacks and full-face helmet.

Footage from security cameras obtained by police show a likely third assailant, acting as a scout who was following Suban immediately after he left his van and walked towards a clinic, before being shot. There are no details about this man's identity or clothing.

Suban was canvassing for Bhum Jai Thai candidates in all three key constituencies in the Central province, where Chart Thai Pattana and Pheu Thai MPs hold half the seats. Suban and his father Kamol had recently changed allegiance from Chart Thai Pattana to Bhum Jai Thai.

Mallika, a sister of Suban, is also running in Constituency 2 under the Bhum Jai Thai banner, against a heavyweight rival - Pheu Thai's Suchart Lai-namngern - but Bhum Jai Thai is not competing for Constituency 3 because it could not find a proper candidate.

Political pundits, reacting to Suban's death, agree that Bhum Jai Thai will face an uphill battle in the remaining days of the run-up, without Suban's help and connections. They refused to comment on who might be behind his killing.

Kamol, an 11-time MP under Chart Thai, an ally of Chart Thai Pattana Party, is expected to help with the Bhum Jai Thai campaign and that of his daughter Mallika.

In Bangkok, police are monitoring the situation in eight of the 33 constituencies where political campaigning by rival parties is intensive. A police-mediation seminar is planned to ask all candidates to employ positive and productive measures during their rallies and visits.

The head of the police centre handling security measures during the run-up, Pol General Phongsaphat Phongjaroen, said officers were discussing with political parties the replacing of vandalised election signboards with new ones, to prevent the public and the media from believing an excessive number of boards had been damaged.

There are now 352 candidates under police protection, usually by two officers at their request.

One in the deep South has a guard of 10 policemen. A force of 11,030 will be stationed at all poll booths in Bangkok.

Only if they move to live in the south of Thailand where he is an MP.
