Phuket Tourist Police Capt Ekkachai Siri told The Phuket News yesterday (Sept 14) that Hannah Gavois, a 23-year-old from Queens, New York, is still recovering from surgery to her spine at Bangkok Hospital Phuket but will be leaving the country tomorrow (Sept 16).

Capt Ekkachai said, “Ms Gavois will leave the country on Friday I have been told by the hospital. She is now a lot better than she was last week, but her main problem is the pain she is suffering to her lower back following the surgery.

“She cannot move around on her own just yet because she also has pain to her legs. Doctor have confirmed that she is not paralyzed but that it will take time for her to heal,” he said.

Krabi police were hoping that Ms Gavois would give testimony to Phuket Provincial Court this week to help move the case to trail quickly despite doctors saying she would need at least 10 more days to recover in hospital. (see story here.) 

However, Capt Ekkachai confirmed that Ms Gavois was unable to give testimony in court, but court officials did take her statement from the hospital.

“As for the court appearance, Ms Gavois could not leave the hospital so court officials went there instead and took her statement. The trail for this case has yet to be concluded. I do not know how many years in jail the suspect will face,” he said.

You need to make yourselves familiar with the concept of Tourist Courts and what it is meant to do.

Christy Sweet, I remember the "Tourist" court concept very well, bad sadly it was just more "lip" service, it was never used, some suggest it never was meant to, they also hid the office at the airport. The "tourist" court goes in the same basket like so many other "ideas" like the safety zones... all championed by that ex-editor, from that dead blog site. Though now we have Joe12 and swerv, I think they all live in the same head.

Kurt: What are you talking about...again!!!. The police have the girl's statement. They also have the attackers statement of guilt, what more is there? An autopsy?
Getting ridiculous with these non nonsensical ramblings.

Christy Sweet: I understand your point.
However, 2 years ago the 'Tourist Courts' were introduced on Phuket, remember?
Specially to handle these 'tourist' cases very quick.

Kurt, very few court cases resolve in two weeks. Of course that's what the Tourist Court was to have been for, whatever happened to that? I believe the authorities have handled this case competently, and the man will face  a punishment. One could argue if it will be commiserant to the crime, but until sentencing we cannot know.

Kurt what on earth are you talking about. Her evidence has been taken, so whats the problem? What is "international protocol?"

The Phuket News

Kurt | 15 September 2016 - 14:04:13

Case (01 September) still unconcluded at 15 September.
A real certificate of incompetence, yes?
Deliberately delayed until she is leaving Thailand.
Shame on Thailand authorities. 
All their coming up excuses are just nonsense according international standards.
Insular.

Well, let face it. Asap the USA lady has left Thailand we never here about this criminal case anymore.
The 'farang victim' left, file closed.
Who thai cares about a left farang? Right?
That is always the way they handle matters in Thailand.

It is time foreign countries put substantial pressure on Thai Government to deal with such matters  in a more international protocol.

They can not just think anymore:  Left means it is over.
That is stone age thinking.
Is Thailand member of the global community or not?
