So..we see that the governor is also part of the problem.....instead of trying to improve the islands image, he chooses suing the whistleblower.....heard this many times before!

Slowly but surely the reputation of this place is getting out into the world, might take a while for the kids to stop going.

Wonder whom they will actually sue. A paper that is not registered in Thailand with no staff living in Thailand. Interesting.


“As the provincial governor, I represent someone directly damaged by this.” I wonder who that is?

Himself, he will have his finger in every pie

"The news site often refers to Koh Tao as “Death Island,” though it attributes that nickname to international media reports and expat communities."

Then The Samui Times will be sued because it reported that some international media nicknamed Koh Tao "Death Island"?... But then the Koasod English now must also be sued because it reported that The Samui nicknamed Kho Tao "Death Island"... And so on... Every media that use the words "Death Island" and "Kho Tao" in the same sentence must be sued !

Be careful ....  you might be sued ...   lol

Now I wonder how long it takes until some will press charges against the TAT labeling Thailand a safe tourist destination.

Class action should do the trick...but then again Thailand doesn't follow the rules of law.

"On 27th April 2017 a young girl from Belgium was found dead in Koh Tao, A.K.A Death Island."
