It is good to notice that some ill-fated guys here are always seeking to make cheap accusation against peoples for political purpose.

The arrest was not legal since there was no drug in the suspect's possession as evidence at the moment of handcuffing. I see that the defense lawyer has the good legal arguments to prove the suspect innocent. It is well known that the Thai authorities are the best to fabricate the fake cases to make of the innocents peoples scapegoats. I have also a serious doubt about the Thai justice system independence. All the courts and judges are flanked by the Junta.

The truth is, Mr. X works for the Lao government, just under the table. Why would the Lao government speak up against their own employee that's filling their bottomless pocket. Mr X. is showering these high ranking government officials with Lexus, Range Rovers, mansions, etc.. Why stop Mr. X when they can lay low and defend him for their personal gain.

What is not understandable, why Thai officials have to continue to speak on Lao PDR's behalf on this issue? Doesn't Lao PDR government have any competent spokesperson to speak for Laos? Isn't Xaysana a Lao citizen? Or perhaps high ranking members of Lao PDR's government are so involved in this illicit trade and they are trying to lay low until this news goes away? It is doubtful that LPDR can continue to play with Sombath's disappearance tactics by staying silence with this case. There are too many parties and countries involved.

The Lao government and their kins are neck-deep involved. Have you ever seen just the arrest of one drug lord could send a shock-wave to the whole politburo in Laos? Now they are trying to conceal everything. The funniest thing is that Mr X could reveal Lao Big Men's off-shore bank accounts.

Good reporting but the English translation is sloppy and poorly edited.
