How would the governor know if a representative of David tried to pay her off?

 

Too late anyway for that.

 

Because the representative would have to have some connection to someone in the governor's office in order to offer any settlement in exchange for dropping the charges against him due to the high profile of the case and the top officials involved. Even if she were inclined to accept any settlement, the prosecution against him and revocation of his visa would still continue I think since Anutin has said he will personally veto any attempts.

I found this article (2021) about this guy ... 

a few things sounds very fishy ...

I read this article when I first heard about the case, interesting to see that they have now amended it and added the updates about his alleged crimes and prosecution in Thailand.

Fehr claims he didn’t intentionally kick the doctor but slipped while making his way down the steps.

Right.. Pull the other one.

 

This case has a glaring spotlight on it now, with nowhere out for this snitbag...

Ok...so now the Governor is involved as well as top cops.....all they need now is a bent lawyer.

A familiar tale.

 

And if it had been a Thai that kicked her none of those would have been involved as she would probably not have demanded that he be charged. Certainly, it would not have involved the Governor.

He would do better to draw a line under his time in Thailand and move somewhere where rule of law, not law of social media, prevails

Where exactly would that be - whilst not passing comment on this particular case - Mob rule by "Social Media" seems to be prevalent everywhere in the world"

Have you met bob smith yet?

At first they said that for sure his visa will be revoked, now they seem to be equivocating.

 

No, just said he has the legal right of appeal. If not, his supporters here would squawk about the injustice. However, it's basically been pre-denied. According the article, quoting the source-that-must-not-be-named, Anutin has also posted on his Facebook page, urging Sophon to reject any lobbying attempts on behalf of the Swiss expat.

 

Doubling down, not equivocating.

If he spent all his savings, and all income from the "sanctuary" is reinvested in it, where does the money for a luxury villa and expensive cars come from?

The article suggests that the park started seven years ago so perhaps seven years of successful operation provides his income?  Perhaps the money for the villa and his cars was allocated before his savings were exhausted, perhaps the cars are financed?
