The family of a cadet who died in suspicious circumstances is urging the Medical Council to investigate the doctors that performed the cadet’s autopsy from last year at the military-owned hospital.

18 year old cadet Phakhapong “Meay” Tanyakan died in October 2017, reportedly after being disciplined by his seniors at the Armed Forces Academies Preparatory School (AFAPS).

Doctors at the Phramongkutklao Hospital identified acute cardiac arrest as the cause of Phakhapong’s death.

“We do not trust doctors there,” Phakhapong’s elder sister Supicha Tanyakan said today (Wednesday).

An official at the Medical Council said the investigation would likely take about six or seven months. Phakhapong’s family has been seeking justice for his death since last year.
