Chetwynd-Talbot still in Phuket jail

PHUKET CITY: Briton Paul Chetwynd-Talbot is still being held at Phuket Provincial Prison, though he is expected to be transfered to the more comfortable Klong Prem Prison in Ladyao, Bangkok, before the end of the year.

Paisarn Suwannaraksa, Director of Phuket Prison, told the Gazette, “It will be more comfortable for the prisoner because he is a foreigner, and easier for friends or relatives to visit. [Klong Prem Prison] is also near the UK embassy, which is more convenient for embassy staff to visit their national in prison.”

Talbot, 32, took up residence at Phuket Prison on Damrong Rd, on May 24 after being sentenced 10 years in jail for the murder of his girlfriend, Debra O’Hanlon, on July 31, 2005, in the Patong room the couple shared at the time.
