The Phuket City Police have been notified of an incident in front of a house in Soi Malipan, Rassada on Saturday (May 12).

Police and rescue workers arrived at the scene to find the body of a man who was identified as 30 year old Peerasit Saelim surrounded by a pool of blood on the ground. A kitchen knife was found lodged near his left armpit.

His body was taken to Vachira Hospital in Phuket Town.

A suspect, 31 year old Watchara Wichaikun, was rounded up by local residents who saw the incident before police arrived at the scene. Watchara, who had a bruised face, was taken to the police station to face charges of murder and carrying weapons in public without justifiable grounds.

A friend of Mr Peerasit, 34 year old Anupong Rakmee, told police that Watchara came to the house as usual to visit his girlfriend. He said they were always talking. This time he brought a knife with him. Mr Anupong thought that it was not normal so he called to Mr Peerasit.

After Mr Peerasit briefly talked with Watchara, he used a wooden stick to hit Watchara, but missed. Watchara then stabbed Mr Peerasit to death.

Watchara told police “The woman was my ex-girlfriend. When I arrived at the house I met with Anupong inside my ex-girlfriend’s house. Mr Anupong asked me to leave, but I refused.

Mr Peerasit, who was holding a one metre long wooden stick arrived and challenged me, asking… “Why am I coming here?” He hit me with the stick. I then used a knife to stab Mr Peerasit.”

Special Tourist Visa 2.0 – This is what should happen on September 26 | The Thaiger

OPINION So here’s an idea. If Thailand truly wants to attract tourists why not offer FREE QUARANTINE for the first 10,000 people who contact their Royal Thai Embassy and register to come as tourists under the new Special Tourist Visa. The Thai government or TAT could pay the hotels directly (I bet it will be a lot less than the extortionate price currently being asked by participating hotels). Some other countries are paying for tourist quarantine expenses. Thailand, with a big reliance, directly and indirectly, on tourist dollars, should consider the same. Provide a valid incentive rather than just spewing […]

Dogs with breast augmentation? Cats with face lifts? After customers reported some suspicious behaviour, a veterinarian in Sisaket province, in northeastern Thailand, has been arrested for giving cosmetic beauty treatments at a veterinary clinic in Phitsanulok, Central Thailand.

And there it was, in full sight of the Grand Palace and shouted out across the royal parade grounds of Sanam Luang, a call to reform Thailand’s monarchy and the powers of the monarch. The protests, which started yesterday in the grounds of Thammasat University’s Tha Prachan Campus, will continue today with a number of symbolic gestures to claim a new era of democracy and reform in Thailand, beset for almost a century with a cycle of military coups, calls for reform, new constitutions and elections – 13 in fact. Around 25 – 30,000 people – the protesters enthusiastically claimed […]
