The French owner of a restaurant in Koh Samui has been arrested for the murder of a businessman.

 

The body of the victim [name withheld] was found at the Tan Rua waterfall.

 

Three men are believed involved in his his death. Two men have fled.

 

Arrested on Friday afternoon was Jean Paul Celine (name transliterated from Thai), 43, a restaurant owner on the holiday island. 

 

Two other men named only as Yves and George are wanted.

 

The murder relates to a business conflict over the sale of another restaurant. 

 

It was originally to be handled by the deceased but after one of the wanted men got involved in the sale an argument ensued that resulted in the murder of the victim.

 

Those responsible believed they could toss the body at the falls and make it look like drowning, said police.

 

Samui police chief Phaitoon Krajajang led the arrest on Thursday afternoon of the Frenchman.

More silly photos from the Police station

 

why is it that the police always present their case - or several versions of it to the press

1 - Before the investigation is complete

2 - before it goes to court?
