The British bar owner in Surin who was intimidated by a biker gang has called the men thugs and toothless cowards who attack women.
Lee Buil told Thaivisa he was not concerned about his own injuries. He was more concerned for his Thai wife Gee who he said was nearly strangled by one of the mob that ransacked the Monkey House in downtown Surin.
Armed with cues and an extendable truncheon they caused 60,000 baht’s worth or damage.
The gang of bikers caused much comment on Thaivisa after the attacks on Friday and Saturday.
Some claimed they were hard men who no one in their right mind would tackle. Others called them “pussies” and mocked them by posting effeminate black leather clad pictures of wannabes resembling the Village People.
Mr Buil, a 57 year old former policeman from Hull, who has lived in Thailand for about 20 years and previously ran a bar in Pattaya thanked Thaivisa and other media for reporting on the problem.
He told us last night:
“These were thugs hired by the ringleader who thought they were untouchable.
“The new regime, army rule, will not tolerate this behaviour. They picked on the wrong town, Surin, it’s a big army city.
“With all this media attention I hope they are made an example of. They have given big bike clubs a bad name. Most (biker) clubs are fine and do good things for the community. Unfortunately these few thugs have tarnished their reputation.
And in relation to the attack on his Thai partner he added:
“Any man who nearly strangled my wife can’t get enough punishment, that was the worst incident. I don’t care about my own injuries, but men who pick on women, yes, they are toothless cowards!”
