A Thai fishing trawler captain has been arrested in Beung Kan and confessed to having disposed of an AK-47 assault rifle that belonged to one of the two Indonesian naval officers killed by Thai fishermen last month.

Wichai Doungken, 41, was implicated by “Sor Nataya” trawler crew members for helping one suspect, Sorasit So-in, flee and for throwing the machine gun in the ocean.

Wichai is captain of the vessel “Sor Thongma”.

Thai authorities have seven Sor Nataya crewmembers including Sorasit in custody and are looking for the eighth suspect involved in the killing, the elusive Sor Nataya captain Opas Charoenporn.
