The couple arrived in Phuket on April of last year, Mr Slabinskiy, a finance broker, told his friends and family that he was making the trip in order to enjoy a holiday and learn to speak Thai. During their stay their idyllic trip turned into a nightmare, and the couple made frantic calls home to friends and relatives claiming they had run into trouble in Phuket and urgently needed USD 100,000 to solve some unexpected problems. When the cell phone went silent concerned family members raised the alarm. Then on Thursday Yanna called her sister in Russia and whispered to her that she had been kidnapped, she went on to stay that if she did not arrive back in Russia the following day, it would mean that she was dead.
