Yesterday the suspects in the Koh Tao Murder case were detained for a further X days. Zaw Linn and Win Saw Htun were questioned by the police on Thursday with their lawyers present, during that meeting they reiterated their ‘not guilty’ plea and allegations of physical and mental abuse during the investigations were recorded. On Friday the 4th extension of detainment was granted until the 20th of November 2014 in order for the continuation of the case investigation. Both boys said they were not guilty and wish to be released now, they also said that despite their detainment they are both in good health.
Despite the police’s earlier insistence that the case was ‘perfect’ the chief of Region 8 Public Prosecutor Office, Tawatchai Siengjiew said that the investigation is only 80% complete. The defendants lawyer opposed the fifth round of detention but the prosecutor overruled the objection claiming that the officials need to interrogate more suspects. Under Thai law the court can detain a suspect for up to 84 days before a trial.
Zaw Linn and Win Saw Htun yesterday wrote a message for the outside world, it translates to “both of us hope to live outside with freedom, both of us love our Mum and Dad”.
