An Australian family appealing for urgent assistance in locating two backpackers who were in the popular Green Mango Club on the 9th of June 2014 hopes newly received iphone footage help with their search.

On the night in question Jack-Hansen-Bartel was attacked, his family is now requesting world-wide help from the public in locating two witnesses who were interviewed at the Green Mango at the time of the attack. The witnesses shown in the iphone footage are in shock as they describe the attack by the two assailants who they point out during the clip.

The two back packers are of American nationality, male, both are around 6ft tall and blonde. One has curly hair. They were staying on Samui at a hostel. They advise in the footage that they are on a flight to leave Thailand for America the next morning- which would have been the 10th or 11th of June last year. Anyone with information or anyone who thinks they may know these two young men please contact Jacks family by emailing

The attack in the Green Mango left Jack with considerable facial injuries. Since then Jack has had to undergo many painful and expensive reconstructive surgeries, and there are many more for him to endure. The cost of the surgeries and trying to fight for justice in this case has left Jack and his family financially broken. A Go Fund Me account has been set up for anybody wishing to help.

Jack and his family wish to thank everyone for their support. It has been only with the public’s support that Jacks surgeries have progressed this far. “We feel confident with your support that Jack can continue to receive at least the physical care that he needs.” His mother told the Samui Times.
