The mother of a French man charged with murder for the brutal killing of an Italian man in northern Thailand has revealed the influence his Thai girlfriend had over her son.
Amaury Rigaux’s mother contacted Thaivisa France to set the record straight on what she claims are a number of innacurries reported about her son.
She says this his Thai girlfriend, Rujira Iamlamai, 37, who along with Amaury has confessed to the murder of her husband Italian 61 year old Italian Giuseppe de Stefani, pressured Amaury into entering Thailand illegally and was a constant influence over him.
According to Amaury’s mother, Rujira convinced her son to break the law by sneaking into Thailand despite being blacklisted.
She says that during an argument last year, Rujira violently attacked her son slashing him across the face, leaving a scar from the top of his forehead to the bottom of his nose.
While her son never pressed charges, due to the severity of the injuries, hospital staff reported the matter to the police and an official report was filed.
She adds that when her son recently stayed at her house he was glued to his phone with Rujira constantly ringing him and sending messages asking his whereabouts and what he was doing.
Rujira would often tell Amaury how her Italian husband would beat and put cigarettes out on her, although there is no way of substantiating the claims.
She added that her son is penniless and was not a sniper in the army, as previously reported.
She said that her son was in the army when he was a teenager but dropped out after only 3 months.
She said that any survival skills he knows was probably learned during periods when he was homeless and not from his brief spell in the army.
Finally, Amaury’s mother said that if her son is guilty of the charges against him then he must pay for what he has done but called for the crimes to thoroughly and properly investigated by the authorities in Thailand.
On Tuesday, Amaury and Rujira were taken to three locations in Phichit province to re-enact their crimes.
Thai media reported that the French man had admitted murder while Rujira admitted to moving the corpse and damaging it.
The dismembered and burnt body of Giuseppe de Stefani was found in Phichit province on 19 January.
Police have charged Amaury and Rujira with murder.
