Thanks, Ian. Likewise to you . . .
I've never commented on here before, but have lived in Phuket and been a daily reader, for almost ten years now. Thanks for the news, and comic relief (mainly thru thru the "coments" and replies) you've done a sterling job and best of luck to both of you, cheers

Hi, why are you closing after so long?
Posted by Why on December 30, 2015 20:38
We are weary of seven-day working weeks. PW is tops for news and views but except for a couple of wise and loyal sponsors, Phuket business offers no support.
Unbelievable. Will they not be content until they have completely ruined the reputation of the country/policeforce/military/legal system in Thailand. Bringing all the good officers into unfair dispute with them ? And dragging you down too. Shameful. Hopefully they get the Judge's note.

Well with three very powerful persons with intricate knowledge of the people smuggling in Thailand, being outside of Thailands borders, those who know about it, took part in it or turned a blind eye to this horrendous activity, should be trembling in their boots. The facts will come out and given to the international press and media.

Congratulations on maintaining your high standards over such a long period of time, and for shining a very bright light on issues that the world needed to be made aware of. Best wishes to you, Alan and Chutima, on your future pursuits.

Boring isn't it getting the authorities to put their hands up and ackowledge defeat. Best of luck to you both.

Good luck to you both in the future, you deserve a break.

My new year's wish for PW is for the harassment to stop. I also wish that journalists and media around the world pay more attention to this situation. All the best to PW and thanks for its struggle to provide unbiased reliable information.

My first post too. I used to play Aussie footy against Mt Gambier teams. They were always tough and maybe a little mad. ....I guess you brought some of that spirit to Phuket. I hope yours, K Chutima's and the rest of the PW team's future endeavours are successful. Happy New year.

Thanks, Jack C.
A Big thank you to Phuketwan for stepping up and telling the truth in the face of adversity, whether it be corruption, slave trading, statistics or any number of controversial issues, along with the standard news items.

A little disillusioned with the land of smiles? You aren't the first and won't be the last farang to fly off with his tail between his legs.

Don't you mean Red Faced? I am going on a holiday then coming back. Please withdraw your head from your bum.
Hi Guys ,

Returned to Europe a few years back, but have been following the News from PW regularly to get a feel of what is going on in Phuket. Hope justice will prevail in this case and wish you a Happy New Year

30 days are long gone, so I presume the option for appeal has passed?
Posted by stevenl on March 9, 2016 13:07
Yes. No appeal.
