Protection sought for witnesses of Silpakorn student’s murder

BANGKOK: -- The Ministry of Justice was on Monday asked to provide protection to witnesses in the crime case related to a Silpakorn University student who was killed by a group of 18 men at the victim’s dormitory in Cha-am district of Phetchaburi in February.

 

Accompanied by her lawyer, Mrs Areerat Chomlok, the mother of the dead victim, Mr Thirapong Thitatharn, alias Nong Pond, met with justice deputy permanent secretary Mr Thawatchai Thaikhiew during which she asked for protection for witnesses.

 

She also asked for compensation from the Justice Ministry.

 

The lawyer, Mr Songkarn Atchariyasap, said that he would raise his objection against bail for any of the 18 suspects who were due to be questioned by police at the Crime Suppression Division on Tuesday.

 

Meanwhile, it was reported that four witnesses were scheduled to give their testimonies to CSD police on Tuesday.

Songkarn claimed he had evidence to prove that the 18 suspects, some of whom were sons of policemen in Prachuab Khiri Khan, had been coached not to testify to the police but to the court only.

They have to have 2 autopsies to determine the cause of death when a guy gets stabbed in the hear with a screwdriver ? Very impressive. Why didn,t they just ask the first examiner twice ?

The case drips with conflict of interest and a lack of transparency.

18 against 1. Extreme even by Thai standards. And as usual in Thailand money comes into it, with the mother asking for compensation from the ministry.

I think your comment is very unfair to the mother.

 

She has obviously brought up her son well as it is not easy to get into Silpakorn University. He was murdered by a gang of connected thugs just because he happened to be in the wrong place. He was unconnected to the feud.

 

In Thailand there are no state benefits. It is the filial responsibility of children to provide for their parents during the child's working years.

 

So, now not only is the distraught mother facing having to bury her son, she is also trying to challenge the grave injustice of the impunity of the police and their thug sons and in addition a dramatically worse financial outlook.

 

Remember there is no welfare state to come to the rescue in this neck of the woods. No nanny state. You and your family are on your own.

I am aware of all you write, having lived here for nearly 25 years. I didn't blame the mother for asking for compensation, I merely wrote that she was asking for it. She would not have to do so in a more developed country.

The point is now if she take a compensation before the court ruled out their fines, they will get very low fines.
