Tong trial postponed because defendant has flu

PHUKET TOWN: The trial of five men charged with participation in the murder of businessman Danis Wayne Tong was adjourned today until October 21. Lawyers for the accused told Judge Pachara Panichwara that one of their clients, Pratin Praktong, was suffering from influenza and therefore unable to attend the court. They argued that it would not be fair to continue the proceedings without Pratin being able to hear the evidence. The judge concurred. On trial are Pratin, Manit Panme, Prajuab Sukkong, Pairat Raksawong and Hugo Vandervelde.
