Jerseyman murdered in Thailand

Posted by Arakan Indobhasa Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Foreign minister Hugo Swire has said there is "real concern" in the UK over the Thai investigation into the murders of Jerseyman David Miller and fellow British tourist Hannah Witheridge.
Thai authorities have charged two bar workers with the murders of the British backpackers amid allegations that the suspects made confessions under duress. Mr Miller and Miss Witheridge were brutally murdered on the holiday island of Koh Tao in September.

Burmese men
Two Burmese men are accused of killing the British tourists in Koh Tao last month.
Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Tun, both 21, are accused of killing the British tourists in Koh Tao last month. The charges have drawn widespread criticism on social media that the two are being made scapegoats.
Today the fathers of two Burmese workers suspected of the killings appealed for a fair inquiry. Win Zaw Tun's father told media in Bangkok that he believed his son is innocent.
In my opinion, my boy is still young. He is very small, same height as me. He cannot commit a crime like that. He cannot kill anyone who is much bigger than him. I still believed that my boy didn't do it.
Now we work together with every side. I hope to see the right decision from everybody. I have already talked to the Myanmar Embassy. They help us a lot. Now it will be up to the Thai authorities to make the right decision. I hope my son will be set free. I'm waiting for an answer from the Thai side.
– Tun Tun Htike, father of one of the accused
