Political ASSASSINATIONS in Thailand ahead of Elections as a couple who were MP candidates of the Thai Nation Power Party were shot dead at home in Kabang district on Sunday night.

Police suspected a political conflict or the works of insurgents.

Police and soldiers examined house number 27 in Moo 7 village of tambon Kabang on Monday morning.

They responded to the murder that happened at about 9pm on Sunday where Warin Saengjan and his wife Rokeeyo Sapae-ing were killed.

Officials found the bodies and spent shells of 11mm bullets. There were no signs the house had been searched.

According to officials, at least two black-clad men entered the house through its back door at about 9pm when Warin was watching TV with his five-year-old son. Both sides talked.

Hearing a loud dispute, Rokeeyo who was in front of the house came inside. The visitors then tied them up and shot them dead.

The five-year-old son ran for his life through the front door, met his 16-year-old sister and fled together.

Detectives said Warin and Rokeeyo would run in the next general election under the Thai Nation Power Party’s banner.

Officials believed both had a conflict with a group of people in relation to their planned candidacy. However, officials did not rule out a southern insurgent attack. – Bangkok Post
