    If I remember correctly, -keith-, the family made a statement immediately after the verdict was promulgated that the family believed the right people were convicted.

    One family did. The other did make some challenging comments, on fb and the like, but then withdrew them.

    I do wish UK policy in respect of these matters would grow some balls. Warn against all travel to the Island, thus making it uninsurable and that and the subsequent publicity would probably force the authorities here to take action.

    Me too, I wrote to my MP 2 weeks ago asking him to urge the UK government to 'lean' on the Thai government to stop the execution of the 2 young Burmese guys. As yet, absolutely no reply and even when it does come, I doubt my letter will have done any good. I just felt that I had to do something and as a British citizen, there's little else I can do.

    I would urge members here to do the same.

    God knows why they believe the ludicrous story put forward by the Thai authorities

    I'm not sure the sister did, didn't she have an outbust on FB at some point basically addressing the micky mouse police work and subsequent trial.

    Quite alot of finger pointing and background here.

    Pleasing to see, other reports I've seen quote the family as saying they are satisfied that justice has been done.
