With a string of foreigners dying in suspicious circumstances and an ominous nickname like Death Island, Koh Tao has been in the public eye for a while. Time to have a look into the history of the island, summarize the different conspiracy theories and come to a logical conclusion.
As a foreigner in Thailand, the verdict in the Koh Tao muders court case scares the bejezus out of me. With questionable evidence and other rumours I prefer not to get into, this should make every farang think twice about picking Thailand as a holiday destination. I do hope that the families of the victims take action as well, they too deserve justice being served. After the news item about a guy facing 37 years in prison for a sarcastic remark about the King’s dog, and another one facing 32 years for liking a post on social media, there seems to be a dark turn in local justice.
