Myanmar nationals Zaw and Win were wrongfully sentenced to death for the killing of two British backpackers on Thai holiday island of Koh Tao
without clear evidence. All of the evidences and CCTV records had been deleted and real culprit is being cover by local police. Even though, both Win
and Zaw denied the crime and appealed justice and innocent, Thai Police forced the two migrants to admit to the murder as scapegoats. Even, Thai
citizens are not agreeing with this investigation.
According to inside news, we are told that, two victims and the son of famous AC bar owner had some issues. The son of AC bar owner and the couple
had arguments on the night of the murder. But the son of the AC bar owner was set free from the murder case and two innocent migrants, win and
zaw, were accused as murderers. AC bar owner family is a local mafia figure on the island and has strong influence over Koh Tao police. Also, the
DNA tests results are not same.
During torture investigation, Win and Zaw were told they will get a lot of money and will release after 3 years threatened to if they admit to the murder
case or else they will be killed. Fear of being killed, Win and Zaw confessed by forced. Before this murder case, one of Myanmar national was killed by
burning alive with car tire because being accused of stealing from the British customer of AC resort. The real thieves, British couples were arrested
only after Myanmar worker was wrongly accused and killed. We also know of one of the witnesses, Myanmar national was given money to cover up
story and later that the witness also missing. AC bar family is local mafia figure and has strong influence over the island.
Of course, the law and jurisdictions of a country cannot be interfered but unfairness and injustice can be told publicly. Thai’s fail of justice and
unfairness should be known by all of the Thai citizens and the rest of the world. Nobody will take care of the issues or crisis of our Myanmar fellow
citizens unless we ourselves do.
