The Pole allegedly threatened his hotel manager with a gun during an argument about documents. (See story here.)

Patong Police Chief Col Anotai Jindamanee told The Phuket News today, “On Wednesday (Mar 20) we interrogated the suspect but he refused to talk about the case and requested a court hearing.”

“On Thursday we took him to court. We oppose bail but it was granted by the court. I don’t know the amount,” Col Anotai explained.

“During our search of the hotel premises, we noticed that the memory card from the CCTV recorder had been removed. However, we have enough witnesses who saw the incident take place.

“Our investigations found that the gun that was used by the suspect has a licence but it is in someone else’s name,” he noted.

“We have also discovered that the hotel does not have a business license.

“I can’t reveal the name of the suspect and certain details of the case yet as we are still gathering evidence. We are working fast to conclude this case and are considering further charges against the suspect,” Col Anotai added.

The polish man refused to deal with RTP, pass by, only talks with the court. Probably very wise. Many phuket hotels have no license, so that fact is not shocking. Shocking is that Government still allow so many hotels without license. Are there still no normal hotel checks on Phuket?  RTP opposed bail. Nonsense. No 'thai harm' was done.
