He was persuaded to give himself up after calls on the phone from his 22 year old step-daughter Bongkhot.

 

He came out with his hands up and was arrested.

 

He explained that Phairat had arrived to call in a 10,000 debt owed by his wife who was out at the time but who wasn't aware that she owed money, reported Daily News.

I think the laws in Thailand allow him to defend himself on his own property. He may walk or get a very short sentence.

Expect a lot more of this in the coming months. 

 

People are hurting in the pocket and now regretting, and being held accountable for, poor fiscal decisions. 

Had a similar discussion with a British friend back home this morning, like always his oik are suffering and the wealthy (who lose 1/5th of their wealth to inflation or market pull backs) are to blame. lol

 

- his wife has a habit of spending all the money on AMZ

I think shooting dead the representative of a loan shark pretty much means your life is over. The guy will be 'maybe' better off in prison for the next 20 years. Wifey better go into hiding now though

If the gun in the picture is the weapon used, it is a very strange looking shotgun?

Their economic policies contribute to the current economic climate.

 

Just as the Yingluck administration was blamed for the suicide of farmers due to the rice pledging scheme, this government should be held accountable for their policies that have caused extreme economic hardships for a number of people.

 

Hope that clarifies.

This is the banks' (private companies) fault for not providing loans to people who can't pay them back?    I don't think so.

Banks serve communities including small businesses. They have duties and obligations which balance their licence  to make money. If they more proactively helped  people many would  not  have to turn to loan sharks.

can't read every comment, or every article.....gotta guess.

 

The guy coming for money was, like always, a low guy on a VERY tall totem poll.  

 

jail is not where you want to go.    

 

you don't shoot the muscle, because the brains can replace that 10000000000x

 

My advice.   Mission Impossible:  Jungle escape.
