    60 unexplained deaths in 2 years?? I had no idea the toll was that high yet the UK government refuses to challenge the Thai authorities over these and other suspicious deaths.

    I have written to my MP twice regarding the two Burmese men that are currently appealing their conviction for the murders of the two young Britons on Koh Tao. I don't have the replies to hand at this moment but they are just pure B S.

    I think its our duty to make sure the correct people are punished - the government are not interested.

    The very least the govt. should do is release an official warning on the dangers Thailand presents to tourists. This should include information on renting bikes, jet-skis and using public transport. They should then go on to mention that extra caution should be taken when visiting tourist destinations especially where organised parties are on offer.

    The Thai govt. would then throw as many toys at the UK as possible and request they apologise and withdraw its statement. The UK could flatly refuse until the so-called police force investigate these crimes properly. Thailand would then threaten to ban every news agency and media outlet they haven't done already, namely Shoot magazine and Horse and Hound, unless they stop picking on them.

    Essentially, whoever is in charge will continue this horrific routine. The Thai police are completely inept in everything they do so God only knows how they investigate DNA and crime scenes. The UK should insist they take full control of British related crimes as serious as murder or face the consequences.

    When the US threatened the Thais over their human rights abuses at sea they soon started to clean up their act.

    Completely agree but as you say Barnet, that's the very least they should do. With 60 unexplained deaths in just 2 years I would have thought a full on recommendation not to travel would be more fitting. Not that they will do anything though - god knows how many more have to die before action is taken.

    My brother-in-law was murdered in Goa and the authorities did exactly the same. The father had to raise money to go and investigate himself. After 2 weeks he identified part of his body dragged from the sea months earlier, from a tattoo. No parent should go through that. How our so-called govt. can continue to allow this to go on, worldwide, is a scandal. If there was oil involved they'd be over in a shot.

    If we believe what we are told, and I have no reason not to believe it - the problem is not so much useless policing as it is corruption. There's a great many stories about these islands being run my mafia type families - some of which seem to simply do whatever they want 'immune' from any form of law enforcement.

    I had a converstaion with the manager of a well known hotel on Koh Tao who told me that 'everyone on the island' knows who actually killed the 2 Britons that the 2 young Burmese guys were given the death sentence for. Apparently it was the son of one of these families and its not the first time he's been responsible for the death of a tourist.

    If murder can be covered up by corruption, to me that says the whole system, right up to the very top is rotten.

    So the police would know also who did it and set up the Burmese chaps knowing that they are innocent or they carried on with it after they learned of who the true killer was.

    Yes, that's what's been suggested for quite a long time. The police say the Burmese men made a confession but the Burmese say it was beaten out of them. Then there's all the crap with the DNA. As I'm sure Tobias would tell you, the mere fact that the defence has not been allowed to carry out independent tests on the DNA evidence would be enough to throw the whole case out of court in the UK. There's also a lot of other discrepancies regarding the DNA and police behaviour yet the UK government say they are satisfied with the Thai investigation.
