Coss posted a topic in NewsAn investigation into the death of a British tourist in Thailand has been branded "medieval" by a coroner. Sussex coroner Alan Craze made the criticism at the inquest into the death of Andrew Apperley, whose body was found on the island of Koh Phangan. Thai investigating officer Suteep Chadakan had given Mr Apperley's cause of death as asphyxiation by drowning. But Mr Craze said the cause of death was unascertained because of poor information provided to him. Mr Apperley was reported missing after failing to return to his hotel following a Full Moon party in February. His body was found four days later. At the hearing in Eastbourne, Mr Craze also said a toxicology report carried out by the Thai authorities was "medieval". Because of the extent the body had decomposed by the time British pathologists could carry out their own examination, they were unable to find a clear cause of death, the court heard http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-sussex-42014114?intlink_from_url=http://www.bbc.com/news/topics/c77jz3md4vdt/thailand&link_location=live-reporting-story Your next Holiday?
My 17 year old Brother in Law has to make to trip to Lampung his home province tomorrow for some paperwork. Now due to the age difference between himself and my wife and I we are often mistaken as his parents and sometimes we do treat him as a kid but he is a good lad and will anything for us and the feeling is reciprocal. I was worried he had his conscription papers for national service but no, he has been awarded his exemption papers because he is starting uni. Yes I am financing it, I am the farang but not a frigging hi-so uni just a basic Thai uni bit thats all that matters. My mother in law was all over me today, you have saved him from the army, I was like Mom he is my little brother do you think I would allow him to be conscripted. We will have a party this weekend. This is part of Thai society not well known to outsiders but based upon Social / Ecconomical background any 17-18 year old boy can be conscripted against his will, if you are from a well off family you have no worries but if you are a poor rice farmer you will get a gun shoved in your hand and four years against your will in the military. Now I am no bloody hero, just looking out for my wives baby brother but it really is a sad part of Thai society where the least fortunate are abused and taken advantage of, the longer I spend here the less I like what I am seeing. I can't change anything will never be allowed a vote so can only look out for my own relatives, but as I said the more I see and understand about this country the less i like it.
