Thai police have arrested a British national who is thought to be behind the murder of Tony Kenway in Pattaya in January.
Kenway, said to be a thirty-nine year old businessman with connections to underworld gangland figures and so-called boiler room operations, was shot in the head whilst sitting in his Porsche at Mabprachan Reservoir on January 24.
The alleged killer, twenty-eight year old South African, Abel Caldeira Bonito and his British accomplice Miles Dicken Turner are still on the run and thought to be hiding out in Cambodia. Arrest warrants have been issued for both men.
Thai Rath has reported that Jirawut Tanthasri of Nong Preu police went to Cambodia where a UK national, now named as Toby James Nelham, who is about forty-five years old has been taken into custody.
He is currently being transferred into Thailand where he will be questioned by local police.
Police sources revealed he is a former friend and business associate of the assassinated man but they had recently argued and even ‘had a fist fight,’ according to witnesses.
Thai cops believe Nelham ordered the killing, report Thai Rath.
