Strandpartytjies in Thailand verbied

Thailand

Die polisiehoof in Thailand het mense gewaarsku teen bespiegelings op sosiale netwerke oor die moorde verlede maand op twee jong Britse toeriste, David Miller (24) en Hannah Witheridge (23).

Die owerheid het as gevolg daarvan alle strandpartytjies verbied in ‘n poging om veiligheid te verskerp.

Die ondersoek na die moord op die twee Britse rugsakreisigers duur voort.

Die polisiehoof het gewaarsku dat enige bespiegeling kan lei tot vervolging en tronkstraf van vyf jaar.

(Reuters) – Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha on Wednesday challenged critics of a police investigation into the murder of two British tourists saying new DNA tests can be done as concern grows that two men arrested over the killings might have been framed.

Two Myanmar men – migrant workers Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Htun, both 21 – were charged with the murder of Britons David Miller, 24, and Hannah Witheridge, 23, whose bodies were found on a beach on the southern island of Koh Tao on Sept. 15.

Post-mortem examination results showed the British backpackers died from blows to the head and Witheridge was raped.
