7 suspected smugglers found dead.

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

7 suspected smugglers found dead.

Post by ta158 »

Seven bodies have been retrieved from a pond in Chiang Mai close to the Myanmar border and to a cemetery where soldiers engaged in a firefight with suspected drug runners on Monday (February 24).

The military engaged the suspects in a cemetery in the village of Pa Daeng. No troops were injured.The clash ended with some 20 suspects fleeing and abandoning 21 rice bags in a forest and the cemetery that contained 2.25 million doses of amphetamine and crystal methamphetamine, weighing a combined 14 kilograms.

There were no dead or wounded found near the drugs, but it’s believed the seven bodies discovered in the pond the next day were those of people wounded in the shoot-out, who then fled across the Ruak River, only to succumb to their injuries in the pond.

Is this a sick joke?
Has The Nation really sunk this low, peddling pathetic cover-ups like this.

Yeah right, all succumbed to their wounds all together in the same place at the same time then jumped into the pond in perfect unison like some kind of macabre synchronised swimming team.

^^Indeed. They would do better to just come out and say, "Anyone caught trafficking this meth shit will be summarily executed". Either way, it seems it's not going to stop the flow of that garbage saturating this whole part of the world.
