London, May 4, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Hannah Witheridge and David Millers murder on the paradisaical island of Koh Tao in September 2014 shocked the world. However, is the scope of the Thai government cover up regarding the British backpackers deaths about to prove even more shocking? That's the opinion of How Not To Get Murdered In Thailand Author Andrew Gardner, who has re-released his August 2014 work recently in order to detail how Hannah Witheridge and David Miller's murderers are most definitely not the accused Burmese duo Win Zaw Htun and Zaw Lin.
Evidencing how Sean McAnna, an acquaintance of David Miller, had had to flee Koh Tao after being told by an undercover Thai policeman that he was going to be found hung with a note confessing that he had killed Miller, Gardner claims that Win Zaw Htun and Zaw Lin are the victims of a Koh Tao government whitewash. What is more, Gardner's argument is a compelling one. According to Gardner, the same Koh Tao and Koh Samui chief prosecutor responsible for apprehending and prosecuting Hannah Witheridge and David Millers killers, is also presently embroiled in a similar cover up regarding a vicious 2014 assault on an Australian national, Jack Hansen-Bartel. Likewise, Gardner cites the 2014 false incarceration of former Tesco UK executive Jason Sudra in Thailand's infamous Nong Plalai prison as a grim demonstration of the countries near universal judicial corruptness.
As if the latest revelations around the arrests of core figures in the Royal Thai Police for corruption and the palace connection is not depressing enough for Thailand it seems there is no end to authors revealing their 'truth' about the country.

Available on Amazon and Smashwords in both paperback and ebook format, How Not To Get Murdered In Thailand makes grisly but arguably essential reading for prospective travelers to Thailand in 2015. Moreover, the work is no doubt about to be welcomed as macabre but long overdue expose of previous Thailand whitewashes of the murders (to name but a few) of Canadian sisters Audrey and Noémi Bélanger in 2012.
Are the accused Burmese nationals Win Zaw Htun and Zaw Lin, really innocent of the 2014 murder of Hannah Witheridge and David Miller? Andrew Gardner certainly thinks so and according to him there is more than enough circumstantial and corroborative evidence available to pitch Thailand as the last rather than first place prospective tourists to the country should think about holidaying this year.
