Jack’s plight for justice in Samui after an attack leaves him with mounting medical bills

Jack is n Australian man who has lived in Thailand for the last 15 years. After his graduation in Bangkok he came to Koh Samui with some friends to celebrate. During his trip he was attacked by two Chinese/USA men while dancing in the Green Mango night club on ht 9th of June. The attackers fled the scene but were later arrested. Jack was giving emergency surgery at a local hospital for extensive injuries to his mouth.

Jack 3Six weeks after being arrested the men were taken to court where their passports were withheld after evidence emerged that the men were taking vacations that were not part of the ‘essential travel only’ section of their bail conditions. At this point the men filed charges themselves against Jack claiming, despite their lack of injuries, that he had beaten them.

Apart from the trauma of facing being in jail himself at one point, when he could not raise bail for charges such as ‘an attack that did not cause physical or mental injury’ and a misdemeanor charge filed by the attackers, Jack now faces 18 months of further costly reconstructive surgeries as well as mounting legal costs.

A fun has now been set up for Jack to help with those costs while he attempts to not only recover but fight for justice in Koh Samui.
