Thailand – Convicted UK Thug allowed to holiday, HERE!


Via: Pattaya103

A British court is allowing  a convicted thug, currently on bail for violence, to take his holiday in Thailand.  Nathanial McIntosh is on a curfew and  only escaped prison, after being found guilty at his trial, because he was willing to wear a tag so that Police know where he is at all times    Yet the failed footballer from Foulmouth succeeded in convincing a British court that he should be allowed to take his holidays in Thailand as they were booked before the   crime took place. ( a likely story)

He   pleaded guilty to using threatening and abusive language and behavior toward 3 people and was given a 12 week prison sentence, suspended for a year, in a case heard last month.   During the attack he is said to have given at least one of the three a “good kicking” during a sustained attack and has previous convictions for similar offences.

Yet now the UK magistrates have  agreed to allow him to have a holiday, HERE!.    According to the magistrates association “If the curfew clashes with work, a pre-booked holiday, a relative’s wedding, or a job interview, magistrates can adjust the curfew as they see fit.   ”They will not add to the punishment by forcing the offender to suffer additional financial losses from losing irrecoverable deposits.”

Motorbike and Car renters need to be on the look out for him too as, only last month,  he was also banned from driving  after a drink drive case.

Where ever he is destined to visit, we trust that he is aware (yeah, right!) that  Local police and courts do not look as kindly on his type of behavior and someone should tip him off to the fact that Kicking off here doesn’t usually lead to a holiday voucher but rather a well populated cell and a poor diet.

Briton of Chinese origin arrested with six fetuses

Via: Pattaya Daily News

Police from the Children and Women’s Protection Sub-Division on Friday told a news briefing that Chow Hok Kuen, a 28-year old British citizen of Taiwanese origin, was apprehended at a hotel room in Bangkok’s Chinatown area.

At the site, police found and seized six roasted baby corpses covered in gold leaf which were hidden in a box packed in the baggage for smuggling to Taiwan.

The detention came after the police learned that there were announcements related to sales of fetus corpses posted on some websites in Taiwan by citing that the fetuses had been performed in the black magic ritual in Thailand.

The human fetuses to be used for black magic purpose were popular among Taiwanese as they believed that the baby corpses would bring them good luck and fortune.

An initial investigation found that Chow Hok Kuen has run a business related to amulets in Taiwan and has travelled to Thailand for several times to purchase some amulets for further sales in Taiwan.

The suspect arrived in the kingdom in early May, saying that he was hired to bring the human fetuses from a Taiwanese man in Thailand who said he often delivered the corpses by placing them under a tree in a public park.

This was the second time he brought corpses, the suspect said, adding that all six foetuses at Bt200,000 (some US$6,600) and will be sold on websites in Taiwan with a starting price of $6,600 each.

Initially, Chow Hok Kuen has been charged with hiding and possessing the fetuses, aiming at covering up the death and causes of the deaths.

However, the police are tracking persons related to the case, particularly a Taiwanese man in Thailand, for further probe about the origin of the fetuses.
