After reviewing legal documents and speaking with people involved in the case, the Army’s National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) stepped forward on Thursdsay after Jack was charged. Colonel Werachon Sukondhapatipak of the NCPO advised in Thursdays meeting between NCPO, military lawyers, Jack’s legal team from Kanung and Partners and a representative from the Koh Samui police department Lieutenant Pongkajohn Sukkasang, that they would oversee the entire process from now on, in conjunction with Colonel Stit Promutai of the Bo Phut police station in Koh Samui, due to the submission of fraudulent evidence and possible corruption from the assailants legal representatives. Colonel Werachon said that the NCPO is heavily combating corruption in Thailand and that it is a main priority for the governing military junta. He advised that both Thai and foreign nationals such as Jack should be secure in the fact that the NCPO, in conjunction with the Koh Samui police department, is determined to make sure this is a fair and transparent legal process.

The attack on Jack took place on the 9th of July at the Green Mango Nightclub in Chaweng. Jack was left with severe facial injuries and faces another 12 – 18 months of surgery and presently wears a face mask.
