Parents of the two Myanmar workers detained in Samui district prison on alleged murder of two British tourists said their sons did not kill the two British citizens but they were forced to confess for fear of being beaten up further by the police.
U Tun Tun Htike, one of the parents, spoke to a crowd of both local and foreign journalists in Kho Samui Friday that after visiting his son Win Zaw Tun in the prison after almost three hours that his son did not kill them but they had to confess because they were beaten up by the police.
He said his son has spoken the truth from his heart and wanted the world to know.
He also said he was happy that his son was well treated by the embassy, human rights lawyer and the lawyers association of Thailand.
He also expressed confidence that the Thai justice system would ensure justice for the two suspects, Win Zaw Tun and Zaw Lin.
The parents of the two suspects later went to the office of the Samui prosecution office where they met the deputy prosecutor of Koh Samui and submitted him a petition seeking justice for their sons.
