Kamala Police led by Deputy Chief Lt Col Sophon Borrirak yesterday (Nov 21) escorted Mr Kyaw Sein Win, or Bun, 47, from Myanmar for further questioning after he was been arrested in connection with the murder of a fellow migrant worker named by police as Mr Tazae, 36, at 11pm on Sunday.

Lt Col Somnuek Damkaew received a call from local residents at 1:30am yesterday where it was reported that a large numbers of migrant workers were engaged in a mass brawl at a workers camp at Baan Kwan located behind Phuket FantaSea in Kamala.

Police were told that one man had died and another had been injured during the mélee. (See story here.)

Lt Col Somnuek said one migrant worker named as Mr Moe Oo, or Mo, 36, told police that prior to Sunday night’s incident, the worker’s foreman, Bun, arrived at their shelter, he was inside his room while Mr Tazae was outside lying in a hammock listening to music.

Mr Moe said, “Bun arrived with another man, Mr Owan, also a Myanmar national, and ordered Owan to attack Tazae. Owan smashed Tazae’s head three times with a one metre long crowbar.”

Mr Mo told police that he was so scared that he ran out out the room and sought refuge at his neighbour’s home. When he returned to his shelter he found out that Mr Tazae was already dead.

Lt Col Somnuek continued, “Officers were able to apprehend Bun shortly after the incident and learned that both he and the victim had altercations and disputes over wages.

“Bun told us that after the incident he took Owan to the motorbike taxi queue and came back to camp,” he said.

Bun also told police that he was there when Owan attacked Tazae, but that he had actually tried to stop the attack taking place.

“When Mr Tazae collapsed Bun said that he was frightened so he took off on a motorbike with Owan. Soon after he dropped Owan at the entrance of the soi.

“Bun said Owan dumped the murder weapon into a canal next to the camp,” Lt Col Somnuek added.

Bun has been charged with conspiracy to murder and have seized a Honda Wave as evidenc

Swerv, the only section of the "Act" where a nominee would be in trouble, is Section 36, the Act itself does NOT forbid nominees, except if in violation of the Act, go read it.
I challenge you, as I have Joe12/ematt, to show the sections, of the Foreign Business Acts, that specifically forbid nominees.

Please refer us to the relevant sections of the "Land" Act.

Khun swerv: Yes, we all know that thai nominee shareholders( 51%)are all shareholder in name!
And why is that phenomenon 'living' in Thailand?
Simple, just because the thai law requires it.

Which well thinking foreigner who has a business in Thailand wants himself these thai nominee money suckers in his business? 
Simply because the thai laws require it.
They are good for nothing anyway.

Same as in a condo project, only 49% is allowed to be sold freehold to foreigners.
That 51% is a xenophobia thai thing. What do thai actually fear, khun swerv?

Rorri: A nominee shareholder is a shareholder in name only; in reality nominee shareholders lacks any real financial stake or interest in the company.  Under Thailand business law, the practice of nominee shareholders is illegal.  The prohibition is found in the Foreign Business Act 1999 , and the Land Act .

Ematt, you also seem to redefine accepted definitions, I suggest you find out what a racist is, it's  not hard, there are many dictionaries available.
Now, as for nominees, go read the "Act" if you can find anything , in any "Act", that states "nominees" are illegal then please post the link.

Wow this is dragging on for a long time! Yes, the original post was sanctimonious (and racist and vulgar and condescending).  And yes, the use of nominee shareholders is illegal. And no Rorii, the business act does not state that "must be a minimum of 51% Thai nominees controlled" because using nominees is specifically illegal. 

The Phuket News

Rorii | 29 November 2016 - 15:49:02

Joe12, the "standard," accepted definition does NOT match your definition, you can make up anything you like, but no dictionary agrees with you, however, as I have previously stated, sanctimonious does describe you.

As for the "legislation" mm, time and time again I have stated the "Thailand foreign business act b e 2542", which states, in part, must be a minimum of 51% Thai nominees controlled, time and time again I have challenged you to disprove this, but as usual you don't, when challenged to put up or shut up, you fail to put up.

You have previously stated you have a high understanding of Thai law, and recently your self praise re: high intellect, so, go and prove my comment wrong. Some people are just 2 bob short of a quid

Rorii...free English lessson for you as I was aware you are not the brightest bulb in the box and would not understand the nuances of the English language. Calling someone a "savage" is taking a morally superiority stance, unless the person making the assertion is on a par with or less civilised (to use your quoted definition) than the person to which they refer. In other words 2 boofheads calling each other savages...like you and Ed....would not be regarded as sanctimonious. The legislation to which I refer is your assertion that nominee shareholders is not illegal. 

Kurt...as usual I am not concerned about your silly ramblings.

Rorii | 28 November 2016 - 12:14:17

Joe12, if all you can do is call me a "clown" so be it, BUT, one who refuses to accept what they are, surely must be worse. Calling people " freaking savage animals" does not makes one suoerior, they may in fact consider themselves "freaking animals" this is something you don't know. Just what "legislation"  are you on about, your writings are becoming more incoherent, by the day. Joe12, just for your info.
Savage, definition
an uncivilized human being.
8.
a fierce, brutal, or cruel person.

I think savage fits this killer quite well, but alas, maybe not the same definition as in your own dictionary.

The Phuket News

Joe12 | 27 November 2016 - 12:39:43

Rorii...another clown. When someone calls another "Freeking savage animals," what position is that person taking...one of moral superiority or inferiority? Given that you cannot understand a simple piece of legislation, it is obvious given your statement that you would have no idea.

@ Rorii: Very well written, about that "Joe12".
It is not for nothing I months ago declared him..." Being in my ignore list". ( Cordon Sanitaire)
Waist of time to react on all the nonsense of this someone.

Life is painless for the brainless, high on their horses.
