“I could be in jail for 30 or 40 years but I could still come out.

which carries a maximum penalty of death.

Hmmmmm......Hey may be jumping the gun a little? He may not "Com" out.

Thailand has really harsh punishments for many crimes I wouldn't be surprised if he was executed for this.

no extradition, but he will be tried in thai? that's kinda absurd to be tried for a crime you committed in a different country.

19 years, well you know real life is not like what you watch in 45 minute tv dramas where everything is solved.

Any case, how was he caught? It says bus, but how? I mean did someone tip off the police or what?

no extradition, but he will be tried in thai? that's kinda absurd to be tried for a crime you committed in a different country.

Countries can exercise criminal penalties even for crime's it's own citizens have done overseas.

rickyvee is one of those with no idea what the law is, but doesn't fear posting his inorance of theat. Do you think, for instance, you can murder someone in Thailand and then hop to Japan and never have to worry about it? THAT would be absurd...
