Samui Times Faces Libel Charge For Labeling Koh Tao 'Death Island'

149 posts in this topic

Seems like an awfully big meeting, shame the same level of focus wasn't put into the investigations.

 

I expect to see some sort of case and most likely the Samui Times Website blocked in Thailand which would probably put an end to their advertising revenue.

So there you have it.

 

At 1.30 pm today 7th July, a press conference was held by the Surat Thani police and the Surat Thani governor.

 

- All 7 cases of deaths by foreigners on Koh Tao were discussed in detail.

 

- Only Hannah and David were murdered.They caught the 2 responsible.

 

- Tourists have nothing to worry about.

 

- The libel suit against Samui Times is going to happen for distorted news and damaging tourism in the area.

 

 

 

And the strange deaths will continue.

 

And the international press will flag these deaths up even more.

 

Well done Surat Thani.

The page seem to be made by a Claire Wyndham, Owner and Manager of Koh Tao International Primary, but appear as it's Koh Tao police asking people to sign a protest – did I understand that correct..?


On the School's Twitter-page it's stated that they "are a Not For Profit School on the island of Koh Tao, Thailand owned by Actor Eliza Taylor."

I've never heard Caroline Sumeray referred to as "an array" or in the plural before. Is there more than one of her?

The court in Thailand did not allow the UK autopsy performed on poor Hannah to be admitted as evidence because Mr Andrew Jonathan Hall presented the UK autopsy report and the person who performed the autopsy was not present in court.

Fair and independent judgment in your opinion I guess Dan?

Here is an array of 3 other UK coroner inquests besides the one conducted by Ms. Sumeray:

Very informative, thankyou for those news articles.

Although I fail to see what this has got to do a libel lawsuit being filed against the Samui Times for labeling Koh Tao as 'death island'.

Or as the petition from Claire Wyndham quoted says,

The Samui Times has continuously made false and inaccurate statements about Koh Tao island that have been quoted and shared by international news sources all over the World. The impact has been devastating on our small community, but also on the whole area, including Koh Samui and Koh Phangan.
