YEARS ON TEACHER STILL IN A COMA
Friends of Adam Pickles the 42-year-head of English at an
international school in Thailand reacted with fury today as another Briton who
allegedly attacked him and put him in a coma walked free from a Thai court.
Adam Pickles, from Bradford, was attacked in Pattaya three
years ago in apparent ‘road rage’ attack after Adam glanced the vehicle of
another Brit Sean Henry Tinsley, from Wolverhampton, who was offering a ‘visa
service’ in the town.
It’s alleged Pickles was attacked from behind by Pickles
with a wheel brace.
He went into a coma and has not come out of it. He is still
under care after being flown back to Yorkshire.
The prosecution are understood to have presented CCTV evidence.
The family has already protested to their local MP about irregularities in the trial process.
Tinsley had previously been arrested by Thai Police for visa
fraud and many of his clients were arrested and had to pay
‘heavy fines’ of 200,000 baht each after they bought visas off Tinsley, which
were provided by a rogue Thai official.
No case however was proceeded with.
Today Pattaya Court acquitted Tinsley, from Wolverhampton.
Further details later when the judgment is released.
However below is the immediate reaction from friends of the well loved Head of English at the International School of the Regents.
Quite some anger is expressed and I have ‘redacted’ a little. But I really feel for his family and friends. The news was broken by Adam’s father Andrew on this
