PHUKET: Police are in telephone negotiations with murder suspect Atsadakorn “Pod” Seedokbuab, a Phuket businessman they believe was the mastermind behind the shocking assassination of Phuket newsman Wisut “Ae Inside” Tangwitthayaporn early last month.
Mr Atsadakorn, owner of KPP Cable TV and a vice president of the Phuket Chamber of Commerce, is demanding immediate bail release in return for his surrender, police sources have told the Gazette.
Maj Gen Pisan Chuldilok of the Region 8 Police and Mr Atsadakorn have yet to reach an agreement on the terms of the surrender, but the negotiations are continuing, the source said.
Two other suspects in the case, the alleged gunman and the man who paid him, remain at-large.
