Worker shows shooting site

Kala, the Myanmar man who allegedly worked for police doctor Pol Colonel Supat Laohawattana for years and said he had been tortured by his boss and forced to bury other workers, was summoned by the police yesterday to identify the spot where a couple were allegedly shot.

Supat is in court custody over suspected links to the three skeletons found on his ranch in Phetchaburi's Tha Yang district.

According to Kala, the shooting had taken place behind bamboo bushes, close to where the skeletons were found. Also, a police search of the ranch yesterday revealed some spent bullets in the grassy area behind the house, where Supat reportedly did target practice.

Pol Lt-General Hanpol Nitwibool, chief of the Provincial Police Region 7, said Supat's wife Wilsa Chantornbanchorn had called to say she was still raising bail money so was not ready to surrender yet.

Police General Hospital director Jongjet Aoajenpong said the forensic examination of the three skeletons should be ready tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Supat's brother Suthep said he preferred not to testify at the Tha Mai Ruak police station because he feared for his safety. Supat's ranch is under the jurisdiction of the Tha Mai Ruak police station. Also, he said, that the white van that was still under his name had actually been sold to Supat and that he had faxed the purchase papers to police. He also insisted that he had nothing to do with the June 2009 disappearance of Samart Noomjui and Orasa Kerdsap or the skeletons.
