This has been going on for almost 3 years now that everybody knows but not one person is willing to come forward with any credible evidence to prove as to what everybody knows. Maybe it is true that everybody knows but if actually nobody knows anything credible it would be the same outcome.
 

So in your opinion....everybody knows:cheesy::cheesy:

First of all, whilst this island is Thailand, it’s not run like the rest of Thailand. It’s still run by a lot of families, sort of like powerful mafia families who own and control segments of the island. It’s slowly changing into a more government-run island and they are now talking about adopting more official procedures for water, power, and waste management. Presently though, there are not many laws on the island for anything. For instance, Koh Tao only just got a ban on polystyrene!

For obvious reasons I never went into this aspect of life on Koh Tao much, but it is an island controlled by the Thai mafia, as I learned more and more clearly with every month I lived there. It’s a place where gangsters and hit men are in control, not the police.

that's how rumours start

The other paper is saying the defense team of the B2 failed to lodge an appeal to the supreme court  and the case is now closed, anyone else heard this ?

Not really just proves us right they were guilty all along. There best chance of a fair hearing was at the supreme court according to their supporters.

Aung Myo thant lawyer for the Burmese embassy is who the Burmese signed power of attorney over to after their arrest, he was the one that also made the torture claims yet failed to provide any proof.

the only way to clear the name of death island is to stop lying first then  find the real murdereres of David and Hannah and get them punished appropriately, set the scapegoats free with an appropriate compensation, sack their police and  get the island out of the hands of its mafia. And don't forget to make the truth of every suspicious death public.

That will take someone or few coming forward with demonstrable irrefutable corrabable evidence and not just the hearsay that 'everybody knows'  and so what?
